So I made this card a few months ago, which I knew at the time was far too random to be of any use, and tonight I decided it had languished long enough, so set about taking it apart.
On the whole I was fairly successful and any rips and tears are nicely covered up :)
I'd printed of the Designed to Delight image months ago and had never got around to colouring it in, but handily it was the right size for this space. Just noticed it involves Spring flowers, but hey, a girls got to look forward to something....
Slight change in ribbon and it's good to go, and infinitely more useable I think. Of course, there are challenges to be entered, and this week it's:
Try it on Tuesday - card inspired by Louis Armstrong "It's a Wonderful World" ok, so not quite trees of green or red roses, but there is a bit of blue sky in there....
Anything Goes #50 - Anything Goes (phew!)
Make it Monday #55 - Anything Goes


  1. Lovely card there C. Would have loved seeing the original, just saying I like to compare things. Artistic eye and all (ask Anne Marie if you don't believe me.)

    Noting potential ribbon envy growing - watch out KKO ;)
