It’s okay to love the way that something looks… Just be sure beneath it something hooks.

Hello everybody, I’m back with a card I just made (about half an hour ago!) for participating in Dawn McVey’s Colour Challenge for the first time. The colours we were to use are as follows:


Very girly, pretty much like most of the stuff Dawn makes 😉 And here’s what I created:

sweet bird rscc14

Dontcha just looove the bird? It’s from PRIMA and I think it is totally sweet.
BTW sorry for the blurry grey photo, you know how they say: “How do you recognize Germany on a satellite picture? – From the closed cloud cover.” 😉

Anyhow, here are the details:

CS: PTI Rustic Cream, Stampin’ Up Raspberry Tart DSP
Ink: PTI Plum Pudding
Stamps: PRIMA Clear Stamp Birdy
Ribbon: Fancypants Designs All Fall Gingham
Button: from my local sewing shop
Other stuff: Elegant Eggplant Marker, Fiskars Scallop Sentiment punch, coloured pencil

As you can see, I threaded the button with purple paper (“faux thread”), a very smart trick I learned from Andrea Walford.
Well, I hope you like it and if you do, I’d love you to leave a comment!
Have a great day!

  8. Oooh, Nina! Super schöne Karte mal wieder!! Ich wollte auch teilnehmen, hab mich aber dann doch nicht verlinkt, weil einfach irgendwie noch grün dazugenommen hatte… Vielen Dank auch für die tolle Karte die ich im Briefkasten hatte :-)) Ich hab sie gleichmal auf meinem Ikea-Regal zur Schau gestellt! Bin nicht im Urlaub aber ein “bisschen” unter Zeitdruck: Arbeiten, Prüfungen, Hausarbeiten und (als Trauzeugin) eine Hochzeit vorbereiten… uff!
