3, 2, 1 challenge and another circus project ...

The new challenge over at Papertake Weekly is '3, 2, 1'  - you need to use 3 of one thing, 2 of another and 1 of another and what you use is entirely up to you :) so I used 3 cherry blossom flowers, two green pearls and one small polka dot button on my card. 

I stamped onto watercolour paper and coloured with distress inks then added raspberry velvet ric rac and 38mm white guipure lace with ots of stardust stickles on her wings - looks really sparkly in real life!

Botton, ric rac, lace, pearls, flowers all from here

There are some fabulous cards over at PTW and I hope you can find time to pop over for some inspiration before you start making your card

Here is a photo of my other Molly Blooms circus project which I started at the class with Claire Rowlands last Saturday

The ball was decoupaged and the top hat, ball and shoes had glossy accents to make them shine - this is a terrible photo - the light was very poor.  There is a card inside the envelope which has been enhanced with a button, twine and some tea dyed ribbon.  I love the bunting - Olivia stood and die cut hundreds of the little flags for us - I have added this die to my wish list as soon as the crafty budget is in funds again! I love the litte notches cut out of the side - very effective. 

See you soon, Mary G x
