For a Friend

150mm square

I haven't kept in touch with many colleagues from my former life in the world of work but I do like to share a little goss with Pat now and then. I always see her on her birthday which will be in 2wks time so am looking forward to that.

I had a look at some of my fave challenges and made this to fit five of them.

Spoonful of Sugar - Floral Fantasy
Simon Says Stamp - Buttons and Ribbons
Pollycraft Monday Challenge - Buttons and Bows
Penny's Challenges - Buttons - a new challenge blog, not just cards!
Friday Sketchers - lovely sketch

Making this card involved a lot of measuring and I cut the curved bits using 2 bowls
I tried the 'out of frame' technique with the image, but it turned out to be 'not very much out of frame'!! Never mind, it is lovely idea and will have another go sometime.

Thank you for visiting, your comments are very much appreciated.
Enjoy the weekend everyone, it looks as though it is summer today :-)
