This Thursday, It's All About………Challenge #1

Oh no! I do one challenge and think it's a one-off, and look what happens! Here is another I'm trying! This one is from This Thursday Challenge Blog. Basically, a new challenge is set every Thursday - easy enough to remember! And this is the first one! The brief is:

FRESH. Whether you use the word, the definition, fresh colours, fresh products, or fresh techniques. However the word Fresh inspires you, and whatever it inspires you to create we want to see it.

This is not a new creation (for those eagle-eyed blog viewers!) but it makes me think 'fresh' when I see it.

Made with Shabby Saturday backing papers from Funky Hand, printed onto both card and vellum, along with the printed sentiment. I've added silver 3d paint as tiny dots around the edges of the vellum and handmade the silver wire swirls to complement the centre of the flowers. The ribbon holds the vellum in place via punched holes.


  1. Great idea printing onto paper and vellum and love your wire swirls
    Great card.

    We will be in the this Thursday chatroom link on sidebar at 8pm if you fancy dropping in
