Just a note ....

Good morning everybody - gosh this sounds like a record !!  Has the week been fast forwarded to Saturday or is it that I am just not keeping up!

Saturday brings another challenge, and this week it is the Sweet Stampin' Challenge #43.  We want to see a note card this time around.  Why not pop over to Sweet Stampin' to see all the lovely inspirational work from the DT's.

Our sponsor is

and the prize for one lucky person 3 Images of your choice from their shop!

I think I have probably gone to town on this far too much, although it was very simple to make, but probably not everybodys' idea of a note card.  But I do tend to make a lot of things all the same size, and not put any sentiment on them before I want to use it so that I have a choice of ways is can be used.  And, this is the type of card I would use as a note card.

I used some black card which has a self pattern on it - but it cannot be seen in the photo.  I printed some paper from the Essence of Nature CD - three different but co-ordinating papers.  I have layered two of them, and along the edge I have used some Aqua Ice Stickles which goes really well with the colours.  I have stamped some words to one side of the card and added a little butterfly just above.  The flower and leaves have been made with a variety of dies.  The flower has been layered up and held together with a little metal flower and pearl brad.  I then smeared some stickles on the flower to give it a bit of bling.

I am entering this for the following challenges:

Crafty Calendar Challenge #12 - Blue and an option of flowers
Paper Romance #15 - Clean and Simple
Southern Girls Challenge #1 - Anything goes
Your Next Stamp #24 - Anything goes
Everybody Art Challenge #107 - Handmade Flowers

    I love your flower and this vibrant turquoise is a very happy colour.
    It is a great little piece and I agree about not putting sentiments on until you are ready. I go one further and never put sentiments on; or very rarely.
