Picture Perfect Creations

Good afternoon all!

I hope you`re all enjoying your weekend.

I`ve discovered a new ( to me ) challenge called Picture Perfect Creations this week.
They have a fab colour swatch which shouted out to be used.
Here is my card  .
A very simple card today, not much imagination needed or used ( the mojo is willing but the creativity is slightly lacking)
I`ve gone with an A5 top fold white card base.
I`ve used some bright yellow paper and used a Martha Stewart Doily punch along the bottom.
Then I`ve overlayed some Pink Petticoat DP in pale grey and used the same punch along the bottom.
I stamped and embossed a butterfly in yellow on yellow vellum.
I`ve added a yellow ribbon and bow.

Not much to tell you about the job yet, I`m still waiting for clearance. All this having to prove you`re legal to work in this country is fine as long as they get on with it, it`s a bind having to wait. They already have my P45, pass port and original birth certificate. They have`nt asked for my marriage certificate which I find strange as my birth certificate and passport are in different names. Do you think they might be trawling through my family history and that`s why it`s taking so long???

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx 


  1. Lynne, this card is simply beautiful.
    I like it very much.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Gorgeous honey i love the colours that you have chosen just fab, big hugs Pops x

  3. oh Lynne what a beautiful card - so simple and yet so striking. I keep meaning to do that double punched row effect - will get around to it one day!

  4. I adore this card - beautiful colours and the butterfly stamped on vellum is such a great idea, I'll definitely be borrowing that! I don't know about all this waiting for clearance Lynne... could it be that you have a murky past?!!!

  5. Lynne this card is so elegant!!!
    I think I'm going to have to buy that Martha doily punch and what an amazing butterfly.

    Thanks for joining us at PPC, I look forward to seeing your future creations.

  6. Simple but very stylish. Very interesting hearing your trials and tribulations to get into work, I will have to get a job soon after a long while looking after my husband, I haven't got a passport so wonder how I'll get on, lol. xxx
