Allsorts Challenge # 10

Morning folks and it's time for a challenge card......the challenge this week on Allsorts has been set by my lovely bloggy bud.....Emma and is.......

to only use one of anything you put on your card
Papers: My Mind's Eye....Bloom & Grow 6 X 6
Flower & Leaf.....Die Cut Decoupage Pad
Background: Hero Arts..Large Delicate Woven Fabric
Sentiment: Hero Arts....Great Flourish Clear Stamp Set
Button: Basic Grey
Twine from stash
I found this challenge.....well let's say a little challenging......this was the second version because....numptie that I am....didn't stick to the we started again and once I had finished the know that feeling that something is missing.....well I know now what it is.....needs a smaller leaf on the left hand side to balance up the design....but hey that ain't allowed and you know me....gotta play by the rules....but I will be adding the extra leaf before this one goes off in the post for a very special lady in my life.   And hey I am loving this new set from My Mind's Eye but must stash it away.....resist temptatuon.......and get on with the DT stuff for next week.    My new resolution is not to be constantly chasing my tail and skidding in by the seat of my pants every week....wonder how long that will last.
And what have you planned for this morning.....well go put the kettle on....get your bum on the sofa and tune into Create and Craft at fabby boss Anice from Funky Hand is appearing live with her latest CD "Funky Word Books" and also demo-ing the Bind It All......Sky 671....Freeview  36......well coffee is ready and to get comfy.......catch up with you all later.
Hugs Kath xxxxxxxx

  16. Hi Kath, Such a lovely card! I love the Bloom & Grow range. I was looking at it when I was in The Range at the weekend by OH was giving me THE LOOK as I only went in to buy DST. Think I might have to pop in on my way home from work on Friday to see if any falls in my basket lol!

    Thanks for joining us at Allsorts this week.
