Getting my mojo back


Last night was the first night I've had to get creative in about 10 days - and I've been in desperate need to get in to my craft desk for a while! I only had enough time to make 3 quick projects, but I think they all turned out well. I'm not going to show you them all today. You'll just have to visit my blog every day this week to see them :-)

To get my mojo back I had to go back to my favourite Bella Rose paper. I really love this pack. It must be my favourite colour combos ever. Never fear though - I used a different colour combo - not a bit of Kiwi Kiss in sight. I've never been much of a fan of polka dots in clothing, but I couldn't resist this jumbo combo. It's just so striking. Not much needed to make it pop. Just a bit of ribbon and a great big 3D flower and this card was done in about 10 minutes.

What do you think? I'm loving the flower myself - but that could be because its the first time I've done one. I've been seeing similar flowers everywhere and just had to try one myself. It's very simple. I punched 4 scalloped circles in Pink Pirouette and then cut and layered them, using a split pin to hold it all together. I have a feeling you're going to be seeing more of these flowers in the coming weeks as I'm in love with them at the moment - so simple, yet so eye catching. If I can let you in on a little secret I made the flower first and then figured out the rest of the card around it. I often create my projects this way - start with the focal point and work backwards.

Anyway enough rambling from me - hope you like it.
