Just a simple and uplifting card


hello everyone,

Hope you are all having a good weekend, its getting pretty cold here in Sydney but I no complain as its good weather to stay home and get things done. There are predictions of a cyclone hitting Sydney tomorrow, lets hope this doesn't happen.

This card was inspired after looking at a beautiful card
right here. I absolutely loved Maile Belle's beautiful card and had to do a version of my own. I also did the EMBELLISH Blog hop today and was completely inspired by the use of twine in The DT's creations.I still haven't found the twine I recently acquired and so used this piece of twine from the packaging of a gift , great to be able to recycle it.
The challenges I have included-
Out of the box- Pile it on
Make someone smile or cheer them up-Stampin' for the weekend
It's a girl thing-The Crazy Challenge
Patterned papers-Some Odd Girl WINNER
Clean and simple-The corrosive blog
Over the edge-The crafty pad
Recycling-Challenge up your life
Buttons-Easy Craft Projects
As you like it-Whoopsi Daisy
