Cute Card Thursday #177 - Guest DT Card


Hi girls. Thanks for popping in to my blog. I hope wherever you are you are safe - I am really sickened with all the rioting that is going on down south these last few days. Where do all these mindless louts come from and what is happening to this country of ours.
Anyway, enough doom and gloom and on to the card for today.
This is week two of my Guest DT month over at Cute Card Thursday (doesn't time fly). The theme this week is "CLEAN & SIMPLE". This was a real challenge for me because I can't resist loads of flowers. However this is my stab at it.
I used plain white card and stamped Penny Black's "Blush" on it using Amethyst by Versa Colour. I cut an apperture and stuck the verse "Footprint Friends" by Stampendous on the inside of the card so that it showed through the apperture. The seam binding and gems are from my stash. The butterflies (there is one on the inside as well although you can't see it) are cut with a Martha Stewart punch.

Why not pop over to the challenge blog and see the fabulous creations from the other team members and have a go at the challenge yourself.
Any comments you might like to leave for me here will be greatly welcomed. Have a great day and stay safe and healthy.

  17. Hello Fiona. I hope you are as well as possible x

    This card is so pretty. I love the peep through bit!

    The riots have sickened me too. It's just beyond comprehension isn't it that people would do such awful things.

    Anyway, I hope you are having a nice weekend x
