An out of the blue post - Craftmad November Swap Cards


 Our Craftmad Swap for November ( was 1 x Recycle card and 1 x card using another card as inspiration.  I used all the items above to create my card below, this was my second attempt of the recycle card as I wasn't really happy with my first try.  The orange background squares used the granola box topped with an egg shell mosiac - such fun.  A technique I will do again.  The flowers and letters from a magazine.

My first attempt used all of this - calendar, dictionary page, ribbon from gifts received and washi tape.

I love looking at styles like this and admire them but I just can't seem to get it.  I'll stick to looking and admiring.

Our inspiration photo

My card.  The flowers are embossed onto a pearl sheen card which doesn't show in the photo.  I hand cut around the flowers.

Thanks for visiting and I will try really hard to not leave my next post too long.
