Delicate Blossoms

OMG, I was on the naughty step again last week as I entered too many challenges to be able to enter the LIM challenge!!!  I really have tried to do better this week so hopefully I'll not get a telling off again.  Do you detect I'm either a rebel ... or just don't pay attention :) One of my blogging buddies, Jules, inspired me to do the paper piecing on this card.  Hope you like!
UPDATE : I went to add my card to the LIM challenge and discovered that yet again I hadn't been paying attention.  A rectangular design was called for so, rather than face expulsion, I quickly put together another card!

Challenges :
Crafts 4 Eternity - Clean & Simple
Less is More - Sketch

Elements : 
Image - Delicate Blossoms by Hero Arts
Paper - from Tulip collection by Docrafts
Sentiment - from Nostalgia Pastimes collection by Papermania
Colouring Medium - Polychromos

I think it depends on how we approach instructions Anne... words, pictures, actions.... if you just looked at the picture of the sketch then you might have thought that to change it to a square card was fine.... but when you read the qualifying bits... it's all clear!
I really love your rectangular one best in fact, although they are both lovely!
Thanks so much

Clare said...

Well I reckon you are a little rebel darlin!!!. I got a telling off from one of the challenges sites the other day so we can both be rebels together!!!. Atleast at CCC we don't tell you off hey!!!. Your cards are both totally stunning. Paper piecing is one of my fave techniques and looks so effective. Well done darlin. Hugs Clare xxx
