Card and Collage

Hello Everyone and thank you for your visit. I was up really early so decided to get crafting and do a couple of challenges.

The Challenge at Anything but Cute this time is Summer Romance with this beautiful mood board to help with ideas

Lots of wonderful things to inspire a project on this board and beautiful work by the DTs as well.

The beautiful blue background and the bicycle seemed very romantic to me so went with those and made a card which will nice as an Anniversary Card for a friend in a few days time

I made the background paper in Paint Shop Pro to match the bunch of flowers on the board, then added the bike image on the plain blue to match. The bike image can be found here with a few more and they are free to use. I layered the flowered paper on card and raised up the bike. The lace seemed to match and the flowers I had made a while ago. A few shiny stones and a Promarker edge to the white card and that's it ready.

Moo Mania and More have just started a new challenge today called In the Garden.

I used one of the photographs of our garden and digitized it to use as a base for a collage. I added two Moos but you don't have to add Moos anywhere if you don't want to.

Hope you have a good day. A bit of rain here but it is getting brighter

Love Chrissie xx
