~ accordion fold flower celebrate card, and black and blue happy birthday card~

Just a quick post from me this morning :)

First a card to share for the current monthly challenge over at The Stamp Spot blog, the challenge spots this month are scallops, satin ribbon and the colour black.
here is what I came up with and you can find details about what I used in this post.

Next I have a card combining the sketch from CPS
This Week's Sketch (#273)

The colours from ColourQ

The theme from Unstampabelles - Celebration! it's their 1st birthday and they have 2 sponsored prizes, pop over and check it out! But remember... no ink or digital stamps allowed :) I pulled out my old adornit alphas for this one :)

For the accordion flowers I cut a strip of pattern paper 12inch x 1inch and scored every 1/4 inch, stuch the ends together, punched out a 1inch circle from some old packaging (thick and strong) and the accordion flower onto the circle with my hot glue gun. popped a button with some twine on top to finish it off :) love how it turned out!

Well thanks for stopping by today, heading into town now to see some friends who just got back from a 5 week holiday in Turkey visiting family. enjoy your weekend xxx
