AAA Card Challenge # 103

Its finally Friday afternoon....yippee!! I'm so ready for the weekend as its been a very busy week gardening. Spring weather is fabulous but boy do the weeds and hedges enjoy it a bit too much, spent today trimming huge hedges for 5.5 hrs!! Was a lovely hot day though so I can't complain.

The current theme at the AAA Card Challenge is 'Celebrate'. I managed to squeeze in some card time this week and play around again with the my new Neat and Tangled 'Falling Circles Cover Plate', using it slightly differently again:

Its not very often I make more than one card at a time but I had all my paint chips out so I couldn't help myself!!

These cards were definitely time consuming but I'm really happy with the final result!

Firstly I grabbed some big square paint chips in two tones of blue and pink and die-cut them with the cover plate. I also cut two panels of white and black CS and die-cut them with the cover plate as well. I put the two paint chips together with one slightly higher. I then did the same with the white panel and then the black panel, using double-sided tape to keep them together. I then finished them off with a panel of black CS behind. This was then adhered to the card front.

Next I die-cut the Neat and Tangled 'Celebrate' die from a similar blue and pink paint chip and the back part of the die in white CS. These were glued together and then put on foam tape. I stamped sentiments from Neat and Tangled 'Say yes to Donuts' on strips of white CS, popped on foam tape and also glued on some Neat and Tangled sequins to co-ordinate.

Love the hint of colours with the circles and the black on top really pops against the white!

Dave will be home from work soon so I better prepare myself to take Bella for a walk. Since its Friday we will probably have pizza for tea. I so don't have the energy to whip up a meal, so I'm very grateful to Pizza Hut!!

Take care
