Happy Boxing Day!

Morning all, and Happy Boxing day, I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday!

I thought it was about time I shared a card, not quite sure whats going on with me at the moment, I just seem to have lost my drive, I just don't seem to be able to craft, when I do get the time to do it, lots of cutting,shuffling and sticking goes on, closely followed by a bit of sulking and ultimately throwing my creations in the bin. 
This card was made back at the beginning of November.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

DBD, Anything goes,
LRW269, Happy Birthday,
PPC 208, Anything goes.

Add Flowers For Lavinia.

It's time for a new challenge theme at Lavinia and the theme for December is
"Add Flowers"

I used one of the gorgeous new dies for my first card, adding a little sponging and stamping to my background and a few punched flowers to the silhouette.

I thought I'd show you a real side on view so that you can see how I treated the wings. I cut the image three times, trimming around the wings on two and sandwiching a trimming of sheer lilac ribbon between them. I then shaped the wings and glued the rest of the silhouettes together. If I was going to be sending this card through the post, I might add a squeeze of silicone glue up close to the body just to help them stay fluttery. 

The next card is just a masked and inked background  and the poppy stamp inked in two colours.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

DDC11, Girlie/diecut,
AGOAC 133, Kraft and a colour,
Allsorts287, Milestone birthday,
Little Claires, Shaped card.
