A big welcome to all of my lovely followers and visitors to my little space in the crafting world of blogland! I love colouring, drool over every embellishment and love to 'look' at papers (never mind using them) - some are just TOO good to use lol. I hope you enjoy your little wander through my creative world and would love to feel that I may have inspired some of you in some small way. Happy Crafting to you all and I hope you will stop by again soon!

Scribble & Scrap - Challenge #2

Morning Everyone! 

It's time for Challenge 2 at Scribble & Scrap and, as always, the theme is 

You can create absolutely anything as long as it's hand crafted (no digital layouts permitted) and our Winner gets a fabulous £15 to spend in the Scribble & Scrap Store.  Please take a minute to read our Challenge Rules and then get those entries rolling in ..... we can't wait to see what you create!

For my card this time, I chose to use the gorgeous Vintage Steampunk Bird Cage

I just love how delicate this image is and I added just touches of colour to it to blend in with my fabby papers.  Okay, I know there isn't a bird in sight on my card, but there are plenty of pretty butterflies .... and they too have wings :)  I cut a few little random butterflies from a second sheet to make the little 3D effect.

I put a little chain of jump rings together and frantaged - a little tricky and sticky, but it worked.  My little charm bird cage at the bottom of the flower array, however, didn't work ..... you'll just have to trust me that it is, indeed, what I have just described and not just a blob of frantage LOL.  

My little card recipe:
Flowers, Pearl Medallions, Filigree Corner - Wild Orchid Crafts
