High fashion Fabulous Florets!
... Well today they are because when I saw this week's Runway Inspired challenge, the black dot on the models t-shirt reminded me of the big flower in the set and today's card happened! Come and see:
I was really attracted to the blocky look of the outfit in the inspiration photo so I cut card stock and striped designer paper and arranged them as a background, rounding one corner to echo the model's shoulder.
The large flower from the Fabulous Florets set was stamped in black stazon ink and centred with a black brad before I attached it to the background. I needed a bold pink accent, so I cut a Melon Mambo tab using the free Sale-a-bration punch and tucked it under the Summer Starfruit layer.
The sentiment is from A Word For You - I liked the fine lines as a contrast to the bold shapes in the image. I really enjoyed making this card but it's not getting me sorted with Easter!

Yesterday my oldest son accidentally dropped a large cube of melon on the floor while bringing it to the table and our cat Tuppence, aka Slayer of the Fiendish Fish Finger, pounced on it immediately. There followed a complete comedy where she tried to eat the slippery melon (I know - aren't cats supposed to be carnivorous?!) and only succeeded in pushing it around the kitchen floor with her tongue. Eventually she did manage to get a few bites out of it and, presumably finding it lacking in the meaty chunks department, abandoned it for the skivvy to clean up - hmmm, that'll be me then!
Have a lovely weekend and I'll see you very soon,
