Sweet Life

Hello blog friends,

A new card to share today for the challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.  We are playing with a tic-tac-toe diagram this fortnight and you can choose any row in the diagram as long as it is horizontal, vertical or diagonal. Your project can either be a card or other paper crafting item, such as a scrapbook layout, box, tag, etc. but must be made in a vintage or shabby chic style. We also have Heidi Augustson (Filharmonica) as our guest designer this week and to see more of her lovely creation you can visit her blog Filharmonicas kreative verden

For my card I chose  to do a shabby Mother’s Day or Spring card with a lovely teacup filled with beautiful flowers, a blue butterfly and a pearl banner. I managed to accommodate 3 lines of the diagram in my card: horizontal, using lace, ribbon and pearls ; a vertical row with flowers, pearls and a die cut and also diagonal with bling, ribbon and a die cut. The lovely chipboard teacup is from the Prima range “Delight” – this stunning range is an absolute favourite of mine. I also used the Prima “Delight” papers and  journal cards for the design. The butterfly is cut with a Cheery Lynn die. The lovely sentiment is from K and Company and one of those items I have for ages in my stash.

Challenges:
