Art Journal no.11 & DCM Mid Week Extra

The prompt this week for the AJ card was Our Initials. Make a card with it.
I painted a wooden "p" white to keep it clear & simple. Added a papermania silk blossom & mini blue brad. Tied pale blue ribbon onto the "p" & stuck a blue sequin flower with blink for the centre. The paper is Aquamarine-Floral Prints by Dovecraft, by a British designer Kate Knight. I loved the Amethyst ones, but they were totally out of stock!!!

This weeks Little Extra was a Theme, for getting those last minute ones made early. The cards you always need to send but only ever make them at the eleventh hour!!

The theme was Get Well & I took the idea from one of my birthday cards, using the rest of the sheet of paper from the AJ card. The flower brads, I've had a while & can't remember the make as they are in tiny boxes these days but the name Accentz springs to mind. Silver peel offs corners to finish. Now I need to wait for someone to tell me they are sick.
