A Little Extra

This is my Little Extra card for this week's midweek Daring Cardmakers' challenge. It's another "2 birds/1 stone" card - always a good result, I think!

The challenge is a recipe this time and the ingredients list is 5 flowers, 3 patterned papers and 1 piece of ribbon.

So I used a shaped card and papers from an old
Self-Addressed Kit. Not sure whether this might be called cheating, but my 5 flowers were cut from one of my patterned papers - hopefully I can get away with that! I really like this group of papers, it's one of the monthly kits that I've used a few times, I love the cheerful summery colours.

I thought I'd also show you the card I made for the cybercrop that was held on the Scrapstars forum at the weekend. If you want to have a go, the instructions can be found there - I'd love to see what you come up with, so please, do have a go! Somewhere at the bottom of one of the piles on my desk I have a whole lot of toppers made using the same method, if I can find them, I'll do a photo later....


Rightio, I found the toppers and stuck them on, and then made another batch with different colours - so here's today's haul! woowoo........ Not a great photo but I'll do another one tomorrow when there's a bit of daylight.
