MAWTT - Spring into Summer

 Hello... I hope you are all doing ok today... it's the turn of Team B this week at


the lovely Claire is hosting this week and has chosen a fab theme! :-))

'Spring into Summer'

We want you to be inspired by this Photo and use the colours... you don't have to use all of the colours.... you could just pick 2 or 3 etc.




They are gorgeous colours aren't they... you have chosen well Claire!

I have kept things very Soft and Simple for this card... I began by looking through my digital folders and choosing some papers to match the colour chart. The backing paper is so soft and dreamy.... so thought I'd go vintage and just add some pretty lace and beautiful bow. I nearly added some more embellies but glad that I didn't now... as think it would have spoilt it!!

Image: E-Vint
Paper: Sarah Schmutz - 'Mist' - Design House Digital (now closed down)
Frame: 'French Provincial' - Digital Scrapbook Place (sorry can't find this either)
Gorgeous Bow: a Birthday gift from my friend Elaine in Oz (thank you!)
Lace: Wild Orchid Crafts

I hope you can pop over to our main site at MAWTT and see the rest of the Team's Photo-inspired creations!! We look forward to seeing your entries!

Thankfully my tooth behaved last weekend and so I had a lovely time with my daughter celebrating her Birthday. We went for a pub lunch on the Saturday which was really nice, and then we had a Champagne Lunch on Sunday with lots of nice food. But need to go on a diet now! Lol

Tuesday I was back to crafting... my mojo seems to have returned and I'm enjoying it again! :-)

Not long until the weekend... it's supposed to brighten up here in UK, so fingers crossed that we have a sunny Bank Holiday! think I will sit in the garden and read if it's nice on Saturday.
Thanks for all your lovely comments!
Have a great weekend!
Love and hugs

Love the elegance and simplicity of the card , the soft colours and vintage image complement each other perfectly, I agree that the minimal embellishments were just right.
