More simplicity

Good afternoon, peeps! TGIF - it's the start of a long Bank Holiday weekend and I hope you're all looking forward to it!

Here I am still trying to solve the problem of what to create for the Make and Take session I'm involved in and this is my second effort. I think it's more viable that the last one I posted because the card is easier to assemble. The main problem is that I'm not really a 'less is more' person, I'm more of a 'pile as much on as you can' person - especially flowers! Now that I've made two cards without a bouquet on them, I'm definitely getting withdrawal symptoms! but at least this card has one flower on it! Apart from that, everything else can just be punched/die-cut and stuck on - the ribbon is not a necessary embellie.
I think I quite like it but I'm not sure - what do you think?

Card recipe:

Image: Magnolia- sorry but I don't know what colour Copics I used because she's been coloured for too long!
Sentiment: Whiff of Joy (I think!)
DPs: Craft Creations
Punches: Martha Stewart Monarch Butterfly large and medium
Pearls: The Hobby House
Flower: Cardology (2 of them glued together)
Ribbon: from my stash

Back to the Clarity stuff now - have a great weekend!


  1. Hi your card hun, the colours are lovely and I adore the style of card you have made too!

    I didn't realise that you meant the spotty organza ribbon, when you asked the other day. The spotty stuff, I got from The Hobby House, I also bought some from The Ribbon Girl too. Hope that you have managed to get some :o)

  5. Hi Diane, so lovely to come and catch up with your blog, I haven't been here for too long! You've been making some absolutely gorgeous things and this card is so beautiful! I love your colouring and the lovely double easel shape, it's absolutely gorgeous and I think it would be very manageable for a make and take. I'm the same as you, suitable cards for make and takes aren't necessarily the kind you like to make LOL! I hope you're well and had a good weekend. Hugs, Chris x

    Your colouring is exquisite and your design wonderful!
