Going for a Hat Trick

K&Co's Wild Saffron papers are so perfect for the season that I just keep picking 'em up! Over at Kraftin Kimmie the card challenge this week is to use Brown, Rust & Green or Yellow...Ah what the hell I thought & used them all!

The sketch is from Cupcake Craft & the addition of the charm qualifies this card over on Crafty Angels too.

I also had another bash at Michelle's handmade flowers there's a tutorial for them somewhere but I couldn't find the link, :-( I didn't distress the edges of the petals enough again, note to self...more contrast required!! I used eyelash fibres & beads for the flower-centre & again I'm pleased with the effect but not with the contrast.

I'll keep practising!

Thank you so much for stopping by xxx
