Chloe Bouquet


I've been busy fulfilling commissions for wedding cards and keepsake books, so what with that and the glorious weather we've been having, I've not entered any challenges for a few days or done the blog rounds, and I've been getting withdrawal symptoms.

So here's a card for three challenges:

Less is More
Hand made Flowers
Play Date Cafe


Cream...Melon...Cantaloupe
And Moxie Fab Birthday Card Challenge


I cut the Chloe Stems (Memory Box) from cream card, then coloured them with Tombow pens, and did the same with the Happy (also Memory Box).  I splattered the card with the same colours, tied a curly lacy ribbon from my stash and stuck one side down with red tape and let the other side curl, then added "birthday" (Waltzingmouse Stamps Say It Loud).
