Totally Papercrafts Challenge

Morning all. Gosh, it's February already and with that my mind must turn to birthday preparations for Craig - he will be 11 in 18 days.... eek!

Anyway, before we get to that it's time for a new challenge at Totally Papercrafts. This week it's the turn of our lovely Kim to set the theme and she has chosen

Make Your Own Embellishments

We are sponsored this week by Alota Rubber Stamps and Saturated Canary.

I have used the gorgeous Blanche from Saturated Canary for my card. I was asked to make a 60th birthday card and I thought Blanche just fitted the bill perfectly.

I have added some rolled flowers.. I really do need to get the hang of these things, I do love them but mine always end up looking a bit naff!

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - Square Cards

Blanche - Saturated Canary

Susan, what a classy card! I love the coloring on the SC image and that little pearl at her hip is perfect. The trio of roses is very elegant and the best color combinations. Nicely done. :)

Happy Crafting...
