Mini catty is here!!


Well the day has FINALLY arrived when I can start sharing all the fabulous new goodies in our mini catalogue - woohoo! I've been making some things over the last couple of weeks that I'll be sharing here over the next little while, but for today I thought I'd start off with a card I made today with the Build a Blossom set and matching punch. I used the colours from the CR84FN challenge this week:

How gorgeous are they?? Here's what I created:

Unfortunately the light wasn't great when I took the photo so the green looks very muted - I used Pear Pizzazz which looks much brighter IRL. I used a larger card size than normal - 7x5", to accommodate that big beautiful flower. I added a big button to the centre (new in the mini) with some linen thread. Underneath the flower is a piece of shimmery white card cut out with the top note die (yes - we now have the Big Shot - yay!!) and embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder. The greeting is from Basic Phrases.

This card fits nicely with the PPA challenge this week which was to use punches - well as you can see I was very punch-happy with this card!

Thanks for stopping by!
