When I saw the gorgeous colour palette and inspiration photo at the ColourQ this week, an idea immediately hopped into my head - and it was going to be quick too, just right for my Three Minute Thursday spot! Here's my card...
... and here's the inspiration:
Can you see how the inserts of coloured glass, the shape of the pendant, and even the wire wrapped around it all influenced my design?
This is a 3"/7.5cm square notecard, perfect for slipping in with flowers or a home-baked gift! It was very quick and easy: I punched an oval out of Whisper White card stock and inked my Bright Blossoms set up with markers before stamping; added the lovely curvy sentiment from Itty Bitty Banners and sponged around the edge of the oval (with what I thought was my Marina Mist sponge dauber but it looks more like my Island Indigo one in this photo - oops!)
Here's what you'll need to make these cards
Stamps: Bright Blossoms, Itty Bitty Banners
Ink: Midnight Muse, Marina Mist, + Pretty in Pink, Wisteria Wonder and Marina Mist markers
Card stock: Whisper White
Other: Big Shot, Bitty Banners framelits, extra large oval punch

What a beautiful day it was in Buckingham yesterday! I do feel for my poor daughter who is deep into her AS level exams and unable to make the most of the sunshine. While we were discussing exams yesterday, my youngest son told me that when he was at primary school, he had a question in a maths test that read: Make two statements about this octagon. My son told me that it didn't occur to him to talk about how many sides it had or its line of symmetry; instead he wrote: It's a very interesting shape. This made me cry with laughter - I love hearing his memories about primary school! (Now there's another idea for the This and That journal...)
See you tomorrow for more crafting fun,
