Shades of One - The Crafting Cafe DT

Morning crafters!

You may or may not have seen that this month's challenge at The Crafting Cafe is Shades of One, and today is my turn to post some inspiration.

I used a lovely image from our sponsor Scribble and Scrap, and made this:

For some reason I always seem to end up doing browns for this theme (though in this case the browns do tend towards the pink end of the spectrum for a change...)
The papers are LOTV, and the flowers are WOC, except for the large one in the middle, which came in a clear baggie from a craft fair with no name on, so no idea, lol. The large pearls I got recently from The Works (a jar full of them, just because I loved said jar...)

Also, I must apologise for the photo being slightly wonky and tilted. At least it goes with the rest of me!!

There's still a week to come and play, so hope to see you there!

I thought I would maybe play along with the Scribble & scrap challenge too this time.

Have a fab day,

Hi Sammy.... firstly, thank you for such a lovely comment on my 'orrible Halloween card!!

I've just popped over to return the favour and become a follower.. Your style is fabulous... I also love your vintage creations... I when through a real vintage phase... had lots of ephemera.. there are some wonderful photographs out there, and I often used to wonder who the people where and whether they could ever imagine being on one of my cards in the future!

And of course, I love your stunning pink creations too.. You may have picked up that I have a 'passion' for pink!! hehe
