Going Girlie

Hi there.  I hope your weekend is getting off to a good start.  We had my friend stay overnight, so were up chatting till very late.  There's nothing quite like a good old gossip with your girlie friends, is there?!!

I have a girlie card to share with you today, which I'm going to enter into the Cupcake Craft Challenges.  I needed to make a girlie graduation card, but this card could be used for any 'congrats' special occasion really.

I fancied doing a bit of black, red and turquoise, and to use my red polka dot buttons.  Aren't they the cutest?

Our snow has now been washed away with rain and it's very overcast here today but this little card brightens it up! I always like the effect you get with the scallop cutters, the flowers look really cheery.   I was quite pleased with how these flowers turned out. My friend had bought me one of the Sizzix flower cutters for Christmas, (the one in red).  I then added a Cuttlebug flower which is a double die, one in turquoise and one in black, and the petals all fitted together really well.  I will just leave you with the supplies used for this card, but if you do want the details just give me a shout.

Dies: Cuttlebug 2 step die - scribble flower, Sizzix 'Flower and Vines w/stem', 'Circle #1', Scallop, 'Catty Corner' alphabet set 
Paper: Basic Grey 'Urban Prairie - Ladybug', red, black and turquoise cardstock 
Accessories: polka dot ribbon from stash, Doodlebug 'ladybug' polka dot button

Have a good evening.  I'm off to watch an adventure movie with Natasha and Ian, snuggled up under a duvet.  My kind of a perfect night in :o)
