Edgy Organic Grace

Today its sunny outside,with Wimbledon and a Grand Prix on TV, what more could you want????

Well I'd settle for some crafty inspiration.!!!

I've made a card which combines two challenges;, Less Is More have used a sketch this week with three circles, and Cas-ualfridays theme is "Getting Edgy"

This is my interpretation

I used my trusty BS to cut two holes out of some blue 'leather look' card, and one out of SU Bashful Blue card which was stuck in between the holes. The card edges were then shaped with a MS punch as were some BBlue, and Navy Blue card, and each layered on top of the navy ( edges for the CAS-ual Friday entry)

Through the holes I stamped the flower from SU Organic Grace, before raising the leather card up on 3D pads, and stamping the dragonfly on the top circle.

Recipe : SU Whisper White,Bashful Blue card, with Navy and Leather look from my stash.
Ink : SU Brilliant Blue
Stamps : SU Organic Grace and Woodware sentiment
Tools : Big Shot,scalloped die, and 3D pads from stash

I will try some more crafting tomorrow when I hope my creative juices will return.

Thanks for stopping by, and hope you can call again soon. Bev. x


  1. We seem to have lots of apertures in this week's contributions... super idea.
    This is a great card, I may have been tempted to have slightly narrower borders, but it's looks fab!
    Thanks so much
