She is the loveliest lady and so generous too with the great prizes she provides for each of the challenges which run for two weeks and which she oversees with the help of Parsnip and Dudley. When I first started blogging over five years ago she was one of the first people to come and say hello and she helped guide me through the gates of the playground, where I have been having fun ever since. For the uninitiated the idea of the challenge is to use up those scraps or snippets of card, paper, ribbon or suchlike, or any of those things that have been lurking at the back of a cupboard and which need to be used. So thank you Di for all your hard work in making The Playground a great place to be and for being so patient with such an unruly mob to keep in order...lol. I have never met Di in person but I hope to one day as we do at least both live in the south of the country.
For this card I decided to use a set of Inkylicious stamps Mini Flower Blooms and a Gina K Wreath Builder Stencil which were part of a prize I won there back in January, and in addition an XCut Deco Scallop Embossing Folder, and a sentiment which comes from a set of Stamping Up stamps called Painted Petals which I also won in The Playground several years ago.
I then embossed the background on to a snippet of turquoise card using the Deco Scallop EF. I don't use coloured card all that often so I have always got some bits in my drawer and this picked up the colour in the topper. I then mounted this on to a 6" square white card and added the topper. Job done!
I'm sorry I am a bit late to the party but the Blog Hop is open for another day, so there is still time if anyone else wants to join in. A big thank you is also in order to Darnell for organising this. Thank you for your visit and I'll see you again soon.
