You’ll never guess….

Time got the better of me last week and I missed a challenge, so I was determined to not only make but also blog a card today.  Now you might not believe this but I’ve actually made a LIM card that I like! And it’s turned out exactly as I wanted…


It's recipe this week to combine three previous challenges. My card could have worked for quite a combination of the weeks (bling, scraps, masking) but the three I’ve settled on are:

  • Week 53 Colour Aqua
  • Week 55 Theme Punches or Die Cuts
  • Week 24 Theme Circles

I began by stamping the Grungy Script stamp on a piece of square white card in Weathered Wood DI, then I masked and inked the stripes with VersaColour Turquoise ink on a make-up sponge. I then stamped and embossed the swirls twice, once on the card in Turquoise and one on a spare piece of card in silver. I pinched elements of silver image with various circle punches and layered onto the card with various depths of foam pads. Lastly a sentiment from PolkaDoodles and all edges inked with the same turquoise ink.


I may try and get another picture in daylight tomorrow as in the photo the square of card looks cream and IRL it’s most definitely white.

While blogging this I’ve just had an idea for something using the waste from my punched out circles so hopefully if Hubby takes Little One out to the park tomorrow I’ll give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by.
