WWC #334 - Helen's Challenge : All About Occasions


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Watercooler Wednesday and Helen is hosting an all about occasions theme.

It can be a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, Valentines, any occasion at all!
My team mates have some wonderful cards to inspire you so I hope you can play along.
All of the details are on the challenge blog.

I have a few backgrounds in my stash made by smooshing inka gold pastes and water on a craft mat.
I diecut one with this bouquet die and added a frame and a sentiment. It's very shimmery in real life but doesn't show up much in the photo.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Time Out, inspiration from the flowers in the quote .

Krafty Chicks, occasions
Dies R Us, anything goes. I used the Sizzix Tim Holtz bouquet die

Dies: Tim Holtz bouquet; Paper Rose stitched rectangle metal frames; Dress My Craft congratulations.
Other: Inka Gold in marsala and hydrangea.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

So beautiful Cathy! It's a shame shimmer and shine are so difficult to photograph!!! Love the colour variation. Take care! :)

Very pretty die cut background - and I can just imagine how much it must shimmer in real life! Thanks so much for playing along with us at TIME OUT!
