Vir Jou

Good day

This is Alf from Julia Spiri, a new designer in Blogland. We have received him in a competition to celebrate 1000 likes on Facebook. I opted for a black, white and purple. In a sense I wanted to make a condolence card, but I'm still not sure if it will fit. On Wednesday morning a friend lost her fight against cancer. I used my swiss dots Cuttlebug emboss folder and a Fiskar emboss folder for the corners with some heat embossing to finish the colour. Letter cut with Sizzix dies.

Challenges I used as inspiration: 
Use your Stuff #223 - Heat embossing
Tuesday Throwdown #294 - Embossing
Aud Sentiment #155 - Anything goes + sentiment
Crafting for all season #126 - Add some embossing
Crafty Creations #315 - Monochromatic
Creative Moments # 93 - Black, white + one colour
Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2-89

Thank you for your visit and have a fantastic day!

Special delivery

Good day

Finally had time to play again. All my boys' trials are finished. Unfortunately non made it to the final teams, but I'm still very proud of them.

This is a image from Connie Fong and is this month's digi for the progressive challenge on Facebook. It is called Bella with gift. I had red, white with a touch of black in my head when I printed it, some time ago. But when I saw this inspiration picture the rustic feeling of the arrangement just triggered the card.
The designer paper is from J'adore from First edition. I used my A-2 Fancy Ribbon Threader from Spellbinder for the first time. I added a the cute bucket charm with a brad to make my flowers look like the arrangement on picture.

Challenges I used as inspiration:
The Paper Shelter #249 - Charming
Penny's Paper-Crafty #278 - Anything goes
Everybody-Art-Challenge #369 - Lace & pearls
The Outlawz Colour challenge 17 May 2016 - My inspiration the rustic feeling
