A "floating" Hello...

I created this cardfor the latest challenge over at 
Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends.


Here's a peek of how I attached the stained glass flower

I then added a second coloured stained glass flower to the back of the one above
 so there are two sides to my floating card!

This is how it looks from a side-view...




Challenge #66
Theme - Always Anything Goes
Sponsored by
Fred She Said

I used the image Stained Glass Floral Doodle -dallion 1
which can be found HERE in the Fred She Said Designs Shop 

I coloured this image with pencil crayons (two of the same image, same size)
I fussy cut the image out and then got my card base out to diecut a centre hole (making sure to have enough space for the floating stained glass flower)
I then cut a piece of cardstock slightly smaller than the front of the card, and diecut the cirecle again.
This piece became the inside cover (so as not to allow the threads to show)


I hope I've inspired you to play along with us at Lil' Patch of Crafty Friends this week.

A scrapbook layout...

It's time for another FREEBIE FRIDAY over at Catch the Bug / Bugaboo.


Here's what I created with this great FREEBIE

I coloured the image with copics and matted with this really cool prismatic paper (from my stash)
and created a fairly clean and simple layout.

Here's a close up of the coloured image...
