Keeping it Clean

Well, since it's World Cardmaking Day today, I guess I'd better update this little blog of mine with my latest effort. It's for this weeks challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, together with Play Date Cafe #152:

Plum. Hmmmm, definitely not my kind of colour. I have precisely 2 'plum' coloured objects in my stash - some very old, Basic Grey buttons and a teeny tiny Stampin' Up ink spot in Perfect Plum.  The paper I've used is about 5 or 6 years old. Who needs new stuff eh? (Me! I hear you cry....)

I've used Waltzingmouse Frame It, together with the little birdcage from the Asian Gardens set and I've added a few flourishes from Autumn Leaves.  There's also a bit of sparkle with some Kindyglitz but it's not really showing up in the photo.

Since it's a thank you card, I'm also going to link it up to Moxie Fab World. They've got a few challenges going on for World Cardmaking Day so check out the blog for the chance to win some goodies.

Thanks for stopping by,
