Jule`s crafty snippets #19

Good Evening All!

A few weeks ago I decided that it was time to use up some of my ever increasing pile of offcuts of paper and card.
I sorted some out, matching papers to card and contrasting colours with bits of ribbon but when it came down to it I couldn`t find the inspiration to come up with something I liked. Then I found Jule`s Crafty Snippets which is posted every sunday. That was just as I was getting bogged down with wedding invitations and life in general. I found that I really didn`t have the time to join in.
Jule`s blog Always with a Heart is full of fantastic makes and the Sunday snippets is a lovely little way of showing us how to use up those pieces we save for a rainy day and never get around to using.Check her out, you won`t be disappointed.
Anyway last night I was determined no matter what that I was going to join in at last and this is what I came up with.

The photo isn`t very good, I took it this morning when it was quite sunny and the white background seems to have bleached the colour a bit.
The papers are both from the same pack that I bought years ago when I first started crafting but I can`t remember who they are from.
The image is Hero Arts Elegant Weeds stamped in versacolour Heliotrope and embossed with clear EP.
The sentiment is Flourishes Tag Lines.
Another first for me is the concertina flower.I punched one edgewith a Martha Stewart Doily Punch and added a large gem in the centre.I know it`s not perfect but for a first attempt it`s not too bad.

I know it`s only a tiny dent in the pile of bits but I thoroughly enjoyed making this card. It was nice to get back to layers and colour for a change. Don`t forget to check out Jules blog ...

Thanks for popping in ...Lynne xx
