This week, Nat challenged us to use Deck Chair Stripes as the Week 28 challenge -
My card couldn't have been simpler! I think a piece of Basic Grey as the deck chair mat, with a piece of Kaisercraft paper to mat the embossed dandelion clocks.
Several years ago, my friend Linda lent me her embossing folders whilst on a scrapbooking weekend, and they have been sitting unloved in a drawer for a very long time. The rub-on leaves were CherryArte ones which had stuck to the backing sheet, so I simply cut them out and used them as such on the card.
For a wee bit of dimensionality, I added some teeny tiny pearls which I bought by mistake - they really only require the most miniscule portion of glue to make them stick! Then a "Got Flower" flower by Prima - I still have a bottle of these in all assorted colours on my desk and I find them very handy for card making.
The message was from a freebie stamp set which doesn't shop up very well. I guess the quality is pretty poor, but I do really like the font! I shall perservere, but if not worth it, it shall go in the bin!
I like the simplicity and "quietness" of this card. You can't often say that about my projects!
