From the sublime to the ridiculous!!

I've gone from one extreme to the other - yesterday's card was CAS with gentle colours and today's has taken me to the opposite extreme, lots of hot colours and fussy papers. This is for Just Magnolia's Hot and Spicy theme this week. It certainly took me out of my comfort zone - hot & spicy just isn't me. I found these papers in my stash, they are Bo Bunny and I don't know what on earth possessed me to buy them, I really thought I'd never used  tehm - but here we are proved wrong again.

I chose my papers, coloured Ladybird Tilda with distress inks and then wondered how on earth I was going to put them together until I spotted the fabulous sketch at Sketch Saturday this week - perfect I thought. I've lightly distressed the edges of the oval and the patterned paper and used gold stickles around these edges (had to dig these out of retirement) and also Tilda's cap and hearts. I really feel with these colours Tilda should have had a pitchfork and horns but I don't have that image. The borders are cut with an MS deep border punch and the flowers and ribbon are from my stash.

Right back to commenting - I thought I was catching up but seem to be all behind again since my computer threw it's hissy fit last week.
