Eeeek!! I am running late. Posting is at 2am New Zealand time now. I was engrossed in work and wasn't watching the time. Sorry! Thank goodness the post was mostly written.
The cards for the last challenge were all totally amazing. You really are a talented bunch.
I have to say, Lesley has been providing the best inspiration photos, and this weeks Merry Monday Challenge image is gorgeous as well. The whitewashed dresser made the image look french country to me.............
.................... and this is what it immediately brought to mind. Hanging dried flowers! I do not come up with an idea that fast EVER!!
Now in the instructions it definitely tells you to use stripes, a piece of information I seemed to have overlooked when I first made the card. When I was writing the heading for this post this morning (err, yesterday morning now) I realized my mistake. Luckily, the stripes just slipped in, even though they do make the card a little more 'grunty'. (see the original card below)
The instructions do say 'stars or hearts', but the end of the wood rail was just asking for some wee hearts, I did try other things, including wee stars, and leaving it bare.
Dies: PTI and Clearly besotted Flowers, Stars and hearts SSS
Ink: Versafine Black, brown and red, Distress ink edges.
