It is has been a lovely mild Australia Day long weekend here in Melbourne. However, as I listen to the radio, my thoughts have been with those elsewhere on the eastern seaboard battling bushfires and heartbreaking floods once again. Nature can be beautiful and extreme.
Today I have a card for this week's Freshly Made Sketch #70, using some more of the new goodies from the Seasonal Mini Catalogue that commences on 1 February, 2013 - that's less than one week away! It's a great sketch this week from Rita.
I have used another pair of designer papers from the new 'Print Poetry' paper stack. If this is the only thing you purchase from the new Seasonal Mini Catalogue, you will have a wealth of options for cardmaking. The co-ordinating colours for this pair are Midnight Muse, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, a touch of Gumball Green and I've used some Marina Mist as well.
The other new item is the lovely Vanilla 5/8" Flower Trim that is made up of soft organza rolled flowers on a netting base. You can use it in a strip as a trim or as I have done by trimming off the individual flowers and clustering them together. I love the softness and it is only about 1/4" high.
For the inside, I have used the 'Everything Eleanor' stamp set to continue the floral theme.
