September Challenge

UK Scrappers Sept challenge is to use one of 3 'pagemaps' to create a card. Here are 2 from different pagemaps:
'bonjour' is created from strips of DCWV Floral Stack, my own design paper and silk paper with a home-printed vellum greeting held by eyelets and overlaid with a wrap of handmade paper finished with pearly parchment, mulberry paper and gem flowers. Latter two both by papermania.

'bonne année' is K&Co green ivy paper with hand-cut and dry-embossed poinsetta. Ribbons from my stash with greeting home-printed in repeat pattern on green piece. Other paper/card from The Papermill Shop; brads from papermania.


  1. Really pretty cards Karen :)

    What I do is also based on paper and colors, but in fact quite different ;-) !

    I look forward to seeing some more creations!
