Another card for Challenge 11

I liked the aqua and brown together so much that I decided that I would make another card - and using the same papers as the previous card just in a different colourway for the background. I prefer this card to my previous one although the aqua colour does not show up very well in this photo and was not able to get it to show better.

I have again used the Argyle Foundation Paper but used the brown rather than the aqua. This is a double sided paper but prefer this side to the other. This time, instead of just using the Scroll Lace corner punch, I also used the Around the Page punch to create both of the layers, using the Core'dinations brown and the Foundations aqua. These punches are really easy to use and create a lovely effect for your cards. I will now be looking for a couple more next time I go out craft shopping - although again, I had all that I needed in my stash to complete this card.

I stamped the image from the Fairyopolis stamps onto aqua card and again coloured in using distress ink. I then added a small bow using aqua and brown ribbon and finished off with roses from Wild Orchid Crafts, who have some really lovely flowers on their website.


  1. This is beautiful and I think I prefer this one to the first. I think, not sure. Like them both really. Hazel x
