Daring Cardmakers - September Elemental Inspiration

 Hello everyone and welcome to the weekly challenge from the team at the Daring Cardmakers.

My children are now back to school so now I have more time to craft but I must get my house back in order.  I think its time to give it a good clean after the summer.  

So back to this weeks challenge which is hosted by the lovely Miri and as its the beginning of the month its an elemental inspiration challenge.  Miri has selected the image below and you need to choose 3 elements to use on your card.

The elements I picked are the cup, colours, a circle and flowers.
The image has just a lovely relaxing feel to it, I love it.

I decided to go with just a couple of colours and wanted to keep my card very cool and calm, so I picked smoky slate and orchid oasis and went with a clean and simple look.

I used the Cup Of Tea Bundle for the main image on my card and added a circle of smoky slate card stock.  To finish the card I added a retired metal bumblebee.  I felt like my card needed just something else and the bee finished it off nicely.

Thanks for stopping by today and please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a lovely weekend.

  2. Beautiful card Dawn, I really like the colour combo you've used, it really allows that little bee to pop! :)

  3. That's such an elegant, but also fun, card, Dawn! I love the muted colours and the cute stripy mug filled with flowers
