Charisma Challenge #2 - Fruity Colours

Morning all

Well, what an AMAZING week we had last week at Charisma Cards Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is


So get crafting!! Here is my creation:


  • DCWV card
  • DCWV 'Sweet' stack
  • DCWV 'Sweet' chipboard sentiment
  • Button from stash
  • Ribbons from stash
  • Brads from ebay
I have to admit, the button flower turned out much larger than I had originally thought - but to be honest, think I quite like the oversize version!!!

I can actually put this card into a few other challenges:

  1. Crafters Companion #2 (mon) - use colours Orange & Yellow (card & ribbons)
  2. A Spoonfull of Sugar #87 (Tue) - Lots of layering - yep, got lots!
  3. Crafty Catz #15 - Birthday card - this is a birthday card for my auntie!
  4. Pile it On #2 (Sun) - Use at least 3 ribbons - I have used loads!!
  5. Creative Inspirations #24 (Sat) - Distressing - yep, edges & filed embossing!
  6. Sew Many Challenges - Anything Goes
  7. Paper Cutz Challenge #24 - Summer/beach theme. Well, do summery colours count?!

Ciao for now!!

Pin It Now!
