While the cat's away the mice will play .... hubby has gone away overnight for work and this morning I have sat down, had a play and made a card.

I am loving the new Flower Patch set from Stampin' Up! with it's matching framelits, the framelits just make card creating and scrapbooking so much easier and quicker.

Amazingly I created this card in a little over an hour. Pinterest is just so wonderful for inspiration, go to Pinterest.com to join, you will love it. You can see a card and be inspired and then put your own slant on it, which is what I have done this morning. Actually my card has ended up looking nothing like the original, if you compare them both, you will see that I have basically just used the layout of the other card sort of like a sketch. 

Stamp sets that I used were all from Stampin' Up! .. Flower Patch, Work of Art and Amazing Birthday. Colours were Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Pistachio Pudding and Coastal Cabana. I have used the Starburst and Flower Fair Frametlis. You will notice some pretty coloured Rhinestone Jewels .. they were coloured using the new Coastal Cabana Stampin' Blendabilities ... pretty ... I love them! The twine was a freebie from Sale-a-bration and the embossing folder is the new Large Polka Dots folder .. lots of element on my card.

Okay if you are inspired by my card, please feel free to case .. but you will need the SU goodies to create it. Contact me to place your order, I'm always here to help.
