Playing along with The Flower Challenge

I loved the current challenge over at The Flower Challenge which is a tic-tac-toe challenge. I love challenges that help me with the direction of my card, especially helpful when I might be lacking some mojo – LOL.


I chose the diagonal of embossing, watercolor and colour (blue) for my card.


I clear embossed the Dahlia Close up stamp from the Ton, then water coloured it with my Prima Confections Classics, which are the neatest little tins of water colour tints. I cut the image on an angle, layered it on some gold cardstock, then stamped the sentiment from Clearly Besotted called ‘Message Me’.

What do you think? I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out.

Thanks for looking.



Hello and welcome to my blog.

Hello and welcome to my blog.
I’ve been thinking about blogging for some time and I have decided to bite the bullet, so here it is!
Card making and paper crafting are my ways to chill and unwind from the stress of my day job  and this blog is somewhere to share my creations, a bit about my life and I’m hoping to enter some challenges along the way.
Thanks for looking and I hope you enjoy my cards.

Here are 2 cards I made last weekend for a work colleague for Christmas. She asked for something sparkly and classy and I think I fulfilled her request. I’ve used 2 dies and a stamp from Stampin Up called Detailed Santa Thinlit, Merry Tags Framelits and Merriest Wishes. I had some super glittery silver and shiny gold card stock that I’d picked up recently from the Paperific Show in Melbourne.
