Wee Memories Challenge

Jenny over at Wee Memories has a fun challenge on at the mo - to use patterned paper on your card! The idea being that you should be using up that stash ... and the prize this week is being able to buy more :0) (Makes sense right!)

So here is my offering...

Baby Wreath

Now to be PERFECTLY HONEST I didn't make this card for this challenge specifically. It was made about a month ago and I never blogged it ... but that is Basic Grey Sugared paper on there (yes really - how old is that now :0) so it really does fit this challenge and I think it belongs in there!

Baby Wreath Deet

I used silk ribbon embroidery to create some flowers on the wreath and a touch of heat embossing for the flourishes.

So there it is - last day to play is tomorrow!

Hugs and thanks for popping in! Hope you have a great evening ... we're due for snow tonight. Eeep! I can't believe it's here already!

This is so soft and beautiful, Nerina. I just got this flourish set (finally!) and I love the way you stamped and embossed it over the strips of patterned paper. The wreath is gorgeous, too!

Remember there's no rules when it comes to a card challenge right?! We can always think of a way to make a card fit and it'd be a shame if this beauty wasn't shared with all those pretty DPs on it. Adore the embossed flourish - truly stunning!
Hugs,
