Out of scraps lying on my table

Hiya everyone,


Hope you all are having a decent weekend... 


It is 11.25 pm as I write this post... frankly I ought to be in bed like a good being but blogging beckons me. Lol!


This is a card I made with literally scraps lying around on my table. Even the three black spiral roses were made by me from paper sitting on my table.


A very simple and easy card but creating it brought me lots of joy. 


I have stuck hand torn silver tissue paper on to a rich red, metallic card stock.


The black polka dotted ribbon was on my table as well.


The spiral roses were created in minutes and their stems have been cut from kitchen foil as I could not thing of anything else to match for the stems. 


The three gems on the left came with a Prima stamp.


The sentiment is handwritten.




I am going to submit this for the following challenges:


http://sarahhurleychallenges.blogspot.com/ - flowers


http://onestopcraftchallenge.blogspot.com/ - clean and simple


and am going to post this on http://www.ggcaa.com/ which is a green blog


Continue having a nice weekend... 


I think I will come and do my visits tomorrow as it is going to be midnight soon. So see you tomorrow...


Hugs,


Monica

Hi Monica, Thank you for your visit. I have been experiencing some internet problems (off and on for a while) but I will check out your most recent posts that I have missed. This card is so, so pretty. And the fact that you made it from scraps on your table...wow! : ) Love your flowers, I'm going to learn to make them one day. Maybe once they are no longer popular...lol! I'm glad you liked the child's poster. I thought it was good. Thank you for sharing such a beautiful creation.

Monica...what a beautiful card...I love it...the colours work perfectly together also...do I spot some bling?(the shiny cardstock).

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and the wishes for my daughter and son-in-laws family in Japan...I will pass it on to them...now we have another worry of the nuclear reactors blowing up...please continue to keep Japan and her people in your prayers...thank you.
