Budget challenge card 1


Good Morning, cold isn't it. I'm glad I did hot water bottles for the bunnies last night, I know they are in a cosy shed cuddled up together but I still worry.
Anyway, here is a card I did for Creative Cardmaking a couple of issues ago, I had to spend no more than a fiver in a charity shop and combine what I bought with my stash to create some cards.
I bought buttons, paperback book, zips, beads, I just used the book pages on this one to create the flowers with my tattered florals sizzix die, combined with tattered leaves, some blossoms and leaves from Sweet Lilac Flowers, (they have a cool offer on, £30 worth of flowers for £17.50 incl postage), Paperartsy Chatsworth paper, May Arts ribbon and Clarity Letterbox sentiments.


I will show you another budget card tomorrow if you pop in.
I'm mainly staying at home today where it's warm, I brought a couple of bits from work to do at the dining table.
Have a good day, stay warm.
