Surprising Weds…

Here’s how it started!! Pearl’s blogging pal in Australia mistakenly thought she’d set a challenge and entered a card… so Pearl decided to have a go at setting a weekly challenge herself! Hence Surprising Weds!!

There are 3 choices for you on this first challenge, so it was pretty straightforward to play along… I chose the black, pink & white and made a simple card last night when I took all the collage bits and bobs back upstairs. I had an idea in my head for this card and luckily, it gave me no problems. I was tired and not in the mood to faff about and I’m happy with the result! The flowers were RAKs from Crissi (die-cuts) and Jane (fabric). Thanks, girls!


I’m thinking this may also fit the bill for Sketch #3 over at My Paper World too… so here you go Nicola! Nicola has a lovely blog and makes super cards – lots of variation and she leaves you lovely comments! 😉

  2. Pearl, trust me hunni – this is a VERY simple card for me! LOLOL! I’m always being told that they love what I do for the DT, but it’s such a lot of work…. I say, if you’re having fun, where’s the work? No, there’s a lot of ‘love/passion/soul/heart’ that goes into things for me (normally!!) 😉

  3. Une très belle carte…rose et noir c’est très classe !!!

  4. O i see Rosie now i have to agree with you fully this is a simple card BY you ! lol ! yes I went over your blog again to look out for more inspiring creations ! Yes it wouldnt be normal if you didnt passionately put your heart & soul into each creation I would imagine !
