it's been a while...

It's been a while since I've played along in a blog hop, and over at Charisma they have one going on right now! So many prizes... do pop over and have a look! 

I thought I'd start by making a card for their birthday celebrations challenge.

I've used Cardabilities sketch #19 - so many inspiring designs from the DT pop over and check them out!

I found my colour inspiration over at Colour Throwdown - tricky combo but the DT have made some awesome cards, check them out!

I had no artichoke so used some old olive instead. I used a vanilla cardstock base, and this oh-so-lovely lace is from a kaisercraft pack and can be purchased from The Stamp Spot online store... and it comes white, but to match with my card stock I gave it a little spritz with my gold glimmer mist. Perfect!

I hope you're all having a wonderful weekend and can sneak in some crafty time too! Take care and I'll see you back here soon xx
