Scrapbook Boutique March Inspirational Challenge and Blog Hop


Hello, hello,


It's time for another BLOG HOP and Inspirational Challenge from Scrapbook Boutique . 

The Hop starts and ends at the Scrapbook Boutique Blog.  If you're following along you should have arrived from Melissa's blog and when you leave me you hop over to Therese's Blog.

The hop is open for one week, closing at midday Monday 17th March. 
To be eligible to win the prize, leave a comment on each of the blogs, with the SB blog being the last one.  The random winner will be drawn from the  SB blog and announced on Tuesday 18th.

Unfortunately the blog hop prize (and the inspiration challenge) are only open to anyone with an Australian mailing address.

Join the Blog Hop and you could be the lucky person to receive 'Nature's Wishes" from Penny Black.

I took the shape from this picture as the starting point for my card this month.  The colour pink was next followed by the pretty daisies.

Here's the card I made:



I used my die cutter to create the shape for this card.  This card is 5" tall and 5" wide.  Click HERE  to download a copy of my shaped card base.

  • Cut the base card from pink card.
  • Cut a second shape 1" smaller from DP. Adhere to card front.
  • Die Cut the Daisy petals from white card with the leaves and centre from green.
  • Shape the petals and adhere to the green centre. Dries Clear Adhesive is the adhesive I use for this work.
  • Add the daffodil Flower Soft to the centre of the daisy, using the same adhesive as the previous step.
  • From Pink card die cut the 'hello' sentiments. Adhere to card front. An X-Press It Glue Pen makes it easy to add glue to the rear of this fine cut sentiment.
  • Position the daisy over the leaves and adhere to the left of the sentiment.
  • Add the Pearl Swirl above the daisy to complete.

Thanks for taking the time to call past today, enjoy the rest of the hop.................

A great take on the inspiration photo, Sue! A shaped card takes it to a new level - and thank you for the included download - I will use it for sure. Love the addition of the hot pink 'hello' and that happy daisy. Hugs, Ann

Great take on the challenge Sue, a very pretty card.
Thanks for the download, and I must admit I did get a bit lost in your blog (which is always a risk when folk have such lovely things to show and gossipy comments), and enjoyed your sewing blog as well :)
Thanks, Di
