I hope you are having a great weekend. It is so lovely to have my hubby home for an extra day this week. In fact he is taking another day off later this week as it is my birthday. I am hoping we will be able to go to the cinema. The garden is coming on nicely.
When I was making a wedding card recently I didn't have an envelope large enough. So I followed a tutorial by Paul Church. The trouble is it took me three attempts to get the envelope right. So I had a lot of patterned paper that needed using up.
This is the card I made with some of that paper.
I have made quite a few of these cards with Snippets of paper used to create the background. The papers from the envelopes was all turquoise and blue.
For the centre I used the Sophia die set from Creative Expression. I won the Just Because die set and this is the first time I have used it. The turquoise card was left over from the wedding card too.
I do like creating backgrounds like this. I am always on the look out for ways to use up some of my Snippets and they just seem to keep accumulating.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
Have a great week.
