Words and Flowers

Afternoon to you all, hope you're having a great weekend.

I've been having a problem trying to get myself motivated just lately so this morning I decided to have another mini clearout of the crafty cupboard to use up some more of my very old stash. I came across some papers - Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady - which were a magazine freeebie and these will be my next 'use it all up' project.

I cut down one of the sheets and stamped it with a Penny Black sentiment before matting onto card and sticking to a hammered effect base card. Then with the addition of a Cheery Lynn die-cut butterfly and a couple of pearls I had my first finished card. It took me all of 10 minutes and so I went on to make another with the leftover snippet of paper which I'll be back with tomorrow.

I made this for the following challenges

Allsorts challenge 'quick and simple does it'
Papertake Weekly challenge 'words, words, words'
Curtain Call challenge 'inspiration photo - bouquet' (although mine is a garden bouquet with red and purple flowers)
Scribble and Scrap challenge 'anything goes'

Gorgeous card and colour combo and of course the Poppies are a hit with me. Apols for the no show all week, taking longer to get over the op that I expected.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
