This time the theme is Green and Orange and once again the Design Team have come up with some lovely creations be sure to check out their blogs, they all produce some wonderful and inspiring work.
So here is my Offering
I used items from two of the Ooh La La range of CD's. Shoes in Bloom 2 and Fairies and Blooms. If you check out the site you'll see that Ooh La La are branching out and now do a selection of buttons and metal embellishments suitable for both cards and scrapbooking.
The backing paper and the patterned strip across the centre of the card were printed from Fairies and Blooms from the 'Sorcha' folder.
The Ivy shoe is from shoes in bloom 2 as is the Ivy border, which was fussy cut from the backing paper. I added a mixed floral arrangement of gardenias, and roses from Wild Orchid and added some green blooms and orange berries I had in my stash.
I used the same papers inside the card but by cropping the plain paper to a small square and then stretching this to fit the 8x8 card blank I ended up with the lovely almost wood grain effect. I added a plain white oval die-cut overlapping a dark green paper doily and added die cut branches and a flower to the bottom of the oval. On the opposite side I made a pocket to contain a book mark which I had printed from the Shoes in bloom 2.
Rather than stick the two pieces of the bookmark back to back I added an eyelet at the top and threaded this with ribbon so that both pieces could be fanned out to be seen at once.
I am entering this card into the following challenges.
