Another CAS card.......

Hello everyone,hope you all had a good weekend. I haven't done much crafting the last few days, I think one of the reasons is I don't want to sit in my craft room on my own when the rest of the family are downstairs.
I missed the deadline for last week's CR84FN so this week I'm making sure I don't so as soon as my sister picked my baby neice up this afternoon I headed upstairs to do this week's colour challenge.
Here are this week's colours:



My inspiration came from this article in the new magazine Mollie Makes where they stitched strips of fabric to card and made bunting, instead of fabric I used patterned paper. I cut out strips of paper and used a Martha Stewart border punch along the edges,adhering it to some card. I used a Nestabilitie heart die to cut out the layered strips of paper and then using kraft card I cut out a scalloped heart to give the striped heart a pretty edge. The last couple of cards I've made have been CAS which isn't normally my style but it just seems to be how they're turning out at the moment. I don't suppose it hurts though to do something different now and again.


I am really loving this magazine,I've read it so many times now and getting tons of inspiration. I've even managed to follow my first crochet pattern and made the cute apple cosies,which I will show you all tomorrow.

Thanks for popping in,will be back soon.

Love your card. That CR84FN colour scheme is similar to a LO I've been thinking of doing for a while. I might just manage to get it done now!
