Happy Wednesday! It's a beautiful spring day here in Lancashire, I even spotted the sun earlier. One thing I haven't spotted is my crafting mojo. It appears to have gone walkabout, so if you spot it can you send it back to me please? I'm guessing it's probably because I'm tired and that my pain isn't too well controlled at the moment.
I had to make a birthday card for my niece who is twelve on Sunday, so I used the gorjuss kit that I bought from create and craft a little while ago. Included in the kit were printed 6x6 cards and decorated envelopes (peeking behind the card) so used them as the base. I selected one of the die cut decoupage toppers, but I kept ripping the pips, so only used two layers in the end. I ignored the base layer as it had a framed edge to it and I wanted to use a doily from my stash, so kept that layer for another card. I used papers from the kit for the background and punched and layered flowers out of them too. I added in a layer of silver Miri and die cut some silver Marianne leafy swirls and snipped to fit. I used AB gems for the flower centres and added a cream and silver sentiment from craftwork cards on top of one of the punched flowers. Lack of mojo meant that I defaulted to my standard card - pin dot squares, old flower punches with flowers in the bottom left corner. Do any of you have a card making default too? I might add some glitter later, who doesn't want sparkly lilac hair?!
