Cute Card Thursday Challenge 24 - Brights!

Would you believe it! Two challenges to date and no Christmas Cards!!! I have a feeling all the ones for this week (with one exception) will be non Festive!

The Cute Card Thursday Challenge 24 for this week is:

to make a card using BRIGHT COLOURS
I'll own up now and tell you that this is a slight cheat as I made this card a week or so ago as a commission for Lisa for her daughters 13th Birthday at the end of the month. But, I thought it was too good an opportunity to miss as I feel it fits the challenge perfectly!
The card is made from my own template and has been directly printed onto from the Now That's Funky cd and the Funky Diva colour collection (sentiment also). The vellum has also been printed on and has been layered. The ribbon (and this is going to be a shock!) I found in my stash and was a perfect colour match! Eyelets from Kath's recent generosity have been added around the edges of the vellum to give it a bit of weight. And I've added 13 pink seed beads to the sentiment and some on the wire attaching it to the handle.

The centre of the vellum flowers also have tiny silver seed beads added.

  • Backing paper & sentiment: Funky Diva collection from Now That's Funky including sentiment
  • Ribbon: From my stash (and I don't think Blackburn market this time!)
  • Other Bits: Seed beads from my stash; eyelets from Kath


  1. Ruth, that is a fantastic card! Love everything about it! Perfect for a 13 year old young lady!

  2. Fab card, love the papers. Thanks for joining in the CCT challenge

  3. I Love this - it is so cute - every girl's dream handbag and those and love those darling seed beads on the tag - fab work

  4. Cor this is stunning! How clever to print the same pattern onto vellum and lay it over the original. It look super cool. I wish it was for me actually! lol


    PS. I also wish I was 13!
