What's on your Workdesk Wednesday #255

Hi Fellow Peeps....I'm on holidays this week so I actually have had time to play at my desk and take a photo so I can play along at What's on your Workdesk Wednesday!! If you're wondering what I'm talking about, check out Julia's blog here where she will tell you all about it.

The weekend after next, we are travelling south by car for about 8 hours to Yeppoon for a friends wedding. We leave on Friday and drive home on Sunday....needless to say, it's going to be a big weekend. So on that note, I have to make a wedding card. I really struggle with white on white even though when someone else makes it I really like it and once again....I gave in and there is a touch of another colour.

For my card I have made a lattice window, then die cut some flourish leaves and started layering.

Originally, I was going to make my own flowers but they weren't really making a 'statement' so I went with my last really big flower. I don't really gravitate to such a large flower but I thought being a wedding card it needed to make a bit of a statement. My touch of colour came from the little butterflies I die cut and punched out. I then added a few pearls and viola...done!! It sounds like I breezed through making this card but I didn't...hehe...there was lots of tooing and froing.

Anyway, pop on over to Julia's blog and check out some of the other desks from around the world and why not even join in! Hope to see you there and as always, thanks for stopping by.

  4. That turned out to be a very pretty card I have agree I buy big flowers and then never use them because they are big flowers and with my space I'm usually neat and tidy even when I'm crafting if it gets to messy it distracts me lol hugs Nikki 4

  9. That is such a gorgeous much as love bright colours, I'm a sucker for a simple, elegant, white on white card like that. Especially when there's a touch of bling too. I love a good bit of sparkle, me :-)
    Mind you, I also love the cut out bit that was left after you took out the flourishes. Do you ever use that for anything?
    Hugs, LLJ 14 xx

    1. Hi Jan, sometimes depending on the shape you can use it as a stencil to create a background paper. My friend uses her cut outs a lot more than I do even though I know I
