Feeling Hot Hot Hot!

Sunday, 14 July 2013

Hi everyone!

I hope you're all well?  We have been having the loveliest weather!  And on my week off too :) But wouldn't you know that would be the week I decided to decorate my bedroom and boy but it has been a struggle!  It has taken much longer than I anticipated, mostly due to the heat and also to do with just being knackered!  All that pulling and hauling, up and down ladders and stairs and all the work to be done in the hottest room in the house too!  I actually just added a few finishing touches today and there's just a picture left to hang up - but I want to ask my Da what the best way to hang it is as it's a stud wall and a heavy-ish picture and with it being hung over the bed, I don't want to take any chances with it! lol!  Things have a habbit of falling down in my house for some reason, and usually in the middle of the night!

Anyway, time for a new challenge at Eclectic Ellapu, and I was almost gonna sit this one out as I wasn't able to get any crafting done all week, but I found a card in my archives that was suitable (even though I'm not that fussed on it) to use for the theme, chosen by Kelly, for this week which is...


So let us see all your lovely flowers - hand made, shop bought, floral papers - you name it!

Here's my card

I was attempting to make it look like a bouquet of flowers but I think I over-did it and it looks like a bit of a mess, but there are lots of flowers!  I made them using several different Spellbinder dies and layering them up and then using either card candy or diamante brads for the centres.  I can't remember the make of the papers though, sorry.

I did, however, like the dimension I got from all the flowers and the big bow!

The inside is comparatively simple!  (I've blurred out the names)

And it wouldn't fit in an envelope, so I made a box for it;

I used a magnet behind the bow for the closure - here it is opened;

So please take a peek over at Eclectic Ellapu to see some truly awesome work by the rest of the Pink team!

Thanks for looking!

Hi Sheena,

Beautiful card I don't think it looks a mess at all, it is very eye catching.

It's really lovely. What a good idea to make a box when the envelope wouldn't fit! Just lovely!! Joan

Stunning card and box, and a fabulous idea, to close the ribbon, would never have thought of that xxx
