Hi everyone!!

Another Wednesday means a new challenge over at the Color Throwdown Blog!! 
I love this photo - so much to use from it and such lovely colours!!!


This is the card I have made:

I started off by adding the white polka dots to the navy cs.  I 'stamped' circles onto the cs using a fineliner cap (it was the only thing I could find that was exactly the size I wanted!!) and a DewDrop Brilliance ink pad.  I then coloured the 'stamped' circles with a white gel pen and added some 3D Clear Gloss.  When it was dry, I adhered some punched cs circles onto my dots and then covered it with some more 3D Clear Gloss and let it dry.  IRL the dots look quite nice.
The rest was eazy peazy!!!
DP from my stash.
Circles cut with Spellbinders nesties.
Rose and flourish dies from MFT.  Banner dies from Verve.
The sentiment was computer generated.
Added a paper clip and rhinestones and it was done!!!

Hop on over to the Color Throwdown Blog and have a look at the lovely cards the DT has made!!!!
Play along - it's fun!!!!

My blog has been very quiet for the last week or two, as I am busy crocheting and knitting at the moment.  I'm busy knitting baby and toddler sweaters for a charity project and in between I'm also crocheting other items.  I love knitting and crocheting, so at this stage I'm really having fun spending time to do that.  It is such a nice way to do my bit for charity, too!!!  At some stage I will do a post to show you what I've made.  As a result of this I have fallen way behind on blogvisits and comments, but I will be visiting you all shortly!!!! 

Thanks so much for your visit - always a pleasure to have you here!!!!

Till next time!!
Keep well!!
Kind regards

another stunning card, petra... love how you used the colors!

Love your resourcefulness and creativity creating your 'fineliner cap circles'. Isn't it rewarding when an
ingenious alternative idea works?

Beautiful focal point - the paper clip is fabulous! You've created lovely movement from the wee green leaves to the strip of green paper and down to the crafty polka dots!

Beautiful card Petra!

This is one amazing and fabulous creation!! How creative are those circles and yes...our photos never do the cards true justice! Love how you added the rose to the circle along with the leafy die (one of my fave)! I started to make a floral card with these colors but forced myself to make another Christmas card since I'm so far behind! :-)
