Do Something different

Hi all

Don't worry this is real! Two post in two days! I am making use of the broadband so am scheduling a few post for the rest of the week as well.

The weather has continued to be good here although it didn't really matter as I have been crafting all day!
So anyway today's card is a bit of a departure for me as I used an 8x8 card for the first time and then using a pair of scalloped scissors (another first) converted it in to a circular card (a triple first!). It all fitted in nicely with a few challenges namely:

Cupcake Craft - Don't be square
Mojo Monday - Sketch
Lily of the Valley - Here comes Summer
Simon Says Stamp - Buttons, Bows & Bling
Papertake Weekly - Do something different.

I used this very cute stamp from LOTV called lazy afternoon and seemed so apt for a summer theme. The papers were the Bobunny Flutter butter papers and a few scraps from the bottom of my craft bag. All the papers have been distressed using vintage photo ink. I made a faux button from a small scrap of paper and some Diamond Glaze and used it to represent the sun. Here is a close up:


Recipe: Stamps: LOTV - Lazy afternoon coloured with copics. Papers: Bobunny Flutter butter breeze, Flutter butter cutouts & stickers. Die cuts - Scalloped circles - Nestabilities, Martha Stewart - Punch Around The Page Edge Punch.  - Loops. Ribbon and glass beads from stash

Thanks for looking

Hugs
