A helping hand........


Now today I wanted to make a really quick card, time is short sometimes eh? :) but I then had an extra challenge with this one..... I had quite a lot of help (interference) from my husband! lol. 

One of the challenges I am entering this card in Cute Card Thursday stipulates NO DESIGN PAPER, so I had a good mooch through my stash, and found this sheet of quite rigid irridescent plastic.  Its really unusual, but great fun to play with.  On seeing this really weird stuff, husband No1 (I call him that to keep him on his toes) decided he wanted to play.  I handed the reigns over, and this is what he came up with!... no kidding :D 
I obviously coloured the image, and played about with the girly flowers and stuff, but he is certainly handy with the pencil, ruler and cuttlebug!  I'll bear that in mind at christmas - that'll teach him! ;)

Anyway, I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Creations - Favourite stamp (this is without a doubt my favourite stamp)
Mo's Digital Pencil - Stamp is TwoJill
Pile it On! - Out of the box (no DP)

I used pearl cardstock, cuttlebug and petaloo flowers, charm and weird orange plastic from stash.
Hope everyone has a great weekend! xx

You had me in stitches with your posting - I mend my husband's books & he helps by finding a more suitably sixed pair of pliers when he sees me struggling to make a one inch flower with a huge pair. I love the originality & the colours are just great - a Nice One indeed!!
Much love

Very sweet card, I love the image and your colouring is really great! The flowers you asked for are made with a punch called "Retro Flower". In a second step I punched every petal with a Martha Stewart Punch called "Doily Lace".
