JAI22 - Jane Blakeley

Hello! Here is my entry for the JAI colour challenge.

I had a little spare time to whip up an entry this week and couldn't resist these colours - they're so fresh and vibrant!

I needed to make a thank you card this week, and nothing says thank you like flowers. I was inspired to try and make some of the paper flowers I've seen popping up on blogs recently, as well as giving the scrunchy ribbon technique a go. Both were very easy!

Thanks again for a great challenge, Jane B

PS. Thanks for the Top 5 recognition and comment love a few weeks ago! I was VERY surprised, to say the least, but incredibly chuffed! I'm hoping to get going on the blog front very soon.

  7. Hey 'Cuz'!

    I love this! The teeny strip of white in between the two layers of turquoise sets the whole thing off beautifully and I'm a HUGE fan of those flowers!

  13. I was very surprised when she was in the living room cutting up card stock and then scrunching it up!!! (Being a typical bloke I thought she'd lost it!!) But seeing the end results it looks fantastic. The photo doesn't do it justice! Love you sweetie :) YB
