Good morning peeps!
I hope you are all having a good day so far? I'd like to say a massive THANK YOU to my lovely followers & new commenters for visiting my little ol' blog & saying nice things about my cards! It means a lot!
Before I tell you about my card... have you heard that KANBAN are back??? Oh I am so happy to know that - & I have missed them big time! Anyway, if you don't know already, they have a fab taster kit on ASPIRE CRAFTS & it's called 'Floral Elegance' - and it is b e a u t i f u l! Like all their kits, it's only when you physically have them in your hands you see the beautiful quality and vibrant colours & designs. Oh & the SMELL...yes, really...I love of smell of their new kits...I know, I'm weird!! lol - many a time I've just sat & looked through my kits & my imagination runs wild with what I'd like to create! AND, sometimes, I spend too much time just imagining and not getting around to actually creating! Or is that called Procrastination??? LOL
Anyhoo - on to my card using the Floral Elegence kits from Kanban. I wanted to try something different to my usual style, like, go over board (as my hubby would say - he's a CAS kinda guy) and I really do love vintage style but I never seem to get it 'right'...I am in awe of you all that create beautiful vintage style cards, so much time & love put into your projects!... So, anyway, I came up with what you can see...or in my husbands words...well, I can't tell you EXACTLY his words but they ended with.....THEY LOOK LIKE A PAIR OF OLD CURTAINS!!!!!) Good job I know him well and actually laughed when he said that but it just goes to show that we all have our own tastes as to what styles we like...the next person I showed it to thought it looked wonderful!
I kinda like it but still feel I have missed something..
