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!

  1. LOL I had trouble with this one myself Rosie, I’m the least “sweet” person I know…..lmao still, that’s why it’s a challenge, it certainly challenged me! You however, have pulled it off perfectly, as blimmin usual!!! this is gorgeous, the blue and gold together are very striking. thanks for playing.

  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.

    I’m saying nothing about Kaz saying she is the least sweet person she knows lol

    This is a gorgeous piece and for me it’s the perfect kind of sweet, very elegant!

  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!!

  8. It’s beautiful!

  9. Well, You did it this time! This is gorgeous! I love that you got your elements from such interesting places, especially the earring.

  10. Sweet it is with a gorgeous sense of elegance. You have the most amazing talent for combining elements in such interesting and effective ways.

  11. Gorgeous !!!
