Trial and persistance got me there in the end



Ok, so the weekend is nearly over. It was an election weekend for us in Sydney, Labour lost out which was actually expected but I have been a Labour supporter ever since I have been voting so it was really sad to see them loose, my husband is devistated.  I hope for all our sakes the the  Liberals will deliver.


Anyway, I was really baffled with this colour combo, I found the colours really tricky but I was determined to make a card with these colours and after a few attempts came up with this card. I have to admit I am really happy with the way this card turned out. Purple and blue really does look lovely together.


For this card the background flowers are rub-ons and the three raised flowers are felt stickers. On the initial design of the card I added stems to every flower but it looked a bit too much. As on my last card I added the purple bird button which I love, have to go and get me some more of these. The sentiment is a rub-on and I have added purple jewels to the middle of the flowers mainly because the centre of the flowers are yellow.

The Challenges I have included-
The Play Date Cafe-PDCC74
DeNami Design Blog-Rhinestones
Wee Memories-Anything goes

I am off to have lunch with my mum and dad, enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone :)

I was chosen as part of the Fab 4 for this card over at The Play Date Cafe
