It's all Natural.....CCCB #97

Hello, everyone, I hope you are all well and ready for the weekend. I've actually got around to sorting my craft room out this week, I haven't wanted to go in there for the past few weeks as it was so messy and I couldn't find what I wanted. I've loved been in there today, I work so much better in a tidy environment, I managed to get 7 cards done.
One of the cards I made is for City Crafter Challenge Blog, this week Linda is the hostess and has asked us to use natural colours and given us this photo as inspiration.


I also used Sketch 153 from Card Patterns.


Here's my card.


I used a variety of patterned papers and punched out 8 scalloped squares, I made the tissue paper flower using the Memory Box Fringe die, this is my favourite die at the moment. It makes great pompom style flowers using felt, fabric and paper.

Supplies
Paper- Crate Paper Brooke Collection, Making Memories Paper Reviene and Vintage Findings.
Printed Tissue Paper- 7Gypsies.
Die- Memory Box.
Other- SU Kraft seam binding, SU scalloped punch, SU Happy Anniversary stamp, lace.

Have a good weekend, everyone. I'm off to Birmingham tomorrow for afternoon tea to celebrate my friend's birthday, I've always wanted to do a proper afternoon tea and really looking forward to it.

Hugs
