Sweet? Moi?!!

Craftaway-a-Sunday has challenged us with the theme ‘Sweet’ and the tag in a bag is gorgeous! However, I’m one of those people who cannot do ‘sweet, cute or traditional’, so this was tough. I have had an unfinished mini-canvas on my desk and this, now it’s finished, is about as ‘sweet’ as I can get!

The image I used for the transfer is from DCS, the flourish from Crafty Individuals and the flower – dyed with blue and purple inks – is from Craftaway!! The silvery embellie is from a box of junk that I bought at a car boot sale – I think it started life as a filigree earring, but I opened it out and flattened it with my Sizzix, just like a bottle cap!

  2. Oh very gorgeous! Love the gold flourish and blue and gold is always lovely. Maybe not cute in the cutesy way but very sweet and feminine.

  7. I think you do both sweet and traditional beautifully, Rosie, but with your own personal *twist*! Yours is sweet without the syrup, and tradition from more unexpected corners! This card is lovely! You must tell me how you used a Sizzix to flatten the earring! And I’m anxiously awaiting news on the crafting fair!!
