Right now I type this from my study, where I can hear the pool filter humming and the birds chirping and I can look out the window and see the cloudless blue sky. I am so thankful that Winter has gone and here in Australia it's officially Springtime.
However in the UK, Sparkles Forum's stomping ground, everything is upside down (or right way up if you believe us Aussies have it backwards). So that's why the theme for their challenge this fortnight is
For my DT card I wanted to create something very simple, and to have a chance to use one of my Scrap Matrix steam punk embellishments. I have been holding on to this one for a while, for it's quite large and will dominate any card it goes on.
I found some DPs that featured leaves and lovely rich greens and browns and really gave me the feeling of Autumn. I added the very last of my antique style lace and some fantastic green ribbon that tied the two papers together. I debated whether to add a sentiment, but really wanted this fabulous charm to be the focus of the card so I left it plain.
I hope you'll join us at Sparkles Forum this fortnight. Please head over to see what my teammates created in answer to the challenge - they are such a talented bunch!
