Du nouveau / Something new

En bonne habituée de défis d'Embellish Magazine, je viens de relevé le défi en cours. Une combo de couleurs toutes printannières et des bordures. Les couleurs, en tout cas une, m'a donné du fil à retordre. Mais une fois que j'ai trouvé parmi mes rubans celui à la teinte de pêche, le problème semblait resolu. Mieux encore, j'ai eu trop d'inspiration ce qui a donné pas une mais deux cartes. Je vous montre d'abord l'inspiration puis mes réas:

If we don't count the previous Embellish Magazine's challenge which I missed, I'm quite faithful to what they propose. This time it is all about Spring colors and borders. One of the colors was quite difficult but once I've found in my stash a peach ribbon, I'bve got enough inspiration for not one but two cards! But before I show you my cards, here's the inspiration piece:


N'est-ce pas chou??? J'ai eu presque envie d'attraper mon crochet et aller dans cette direction! Mais j'ai plutôt resorti mon aiguille et quelques perles ainsi que des oeillets et voilà ce que ça donne:

Isn't it cute??? I've almost felt compelled to take out my crochet and go on this direction! But instead I took out my needle, some pearls and eyelets and here the result:


Matériel: papiers Bazzil; tampon HA; encre Tsukineko; poudre à embosser Top Boss; oeilletsAC; Border punch Fiskars; machine à coudre



Matériel: papiers Bazzil; tampon G-Studio; encre Colorsnap; ciseaux Fiskars; ruban, perles de rocaille, cotton mouliné DMC


Sinon, hier j'ai appris avec grande joie que ma carte "Friendship Flowers" se trouve parmis les gagnantes du dernier défi Hero Arts!!! Quelques nouveaux tampons en vue!

Otherwise, yesterday I found out that my card "Friendship Flowers" is among Fab Five winners on Hero Arts blog!!! Some goodies to will arrive soon!

Puis, aujourd'hui nous avons fait une jolie excursion au Papilliorama où il fait surtout très humide! Mais il y a également beaucoup des magnifiques papillons d'où la nouvelle bannière. Le printemps n'est pas loin cette fois-ci!

And today we went to visit a tropical site of Papilliorama where it is extremely humid! But also there are plenty of beautiful butterlies hence the new banner. Spring is much closer now!
