I covered a card blank with orange paper then covered that with patterned paper leaving a large orange border at the bottom. On the reverse I drew around a 1p several times and cut around this to form the scalloped edge. I added a border to the centre and to the bottom edge. Finally the orange and green flower and co-ordinating gems were added.

I used free paper for the background (it was free in a magazine but I can't remember which one!) then I stamped hero arts birds onto white card. Ribbons in Tutti fruitti colours were added and eyelets in matching colours. A nice bright juicy card!!

Scrapbook Page
I have used a photo of Georgia when she was 12 weeks old on my LO, and matted it onto Papermania Citrus Papers. I typed some words on the pc and printed them off on the same papers, and embellished with some bright flowers.

For my card I followed a technique for the 'Aged Tile' look. The Blackberry image from Anita's is water coloured. The pieces have been aged with Antique Linen distress ink. This has been mounted onto a background made up of Cuttlebug embossing and a piece of card stamped with a Cornish Heritage Farms tree bark backgrounder stamp. Embellished with string mounted behind the tiled image.

My take on the theme this week was to create a card using Tutti Fruity colours. The stamp is Simon in shorts by Sugar Nellie and I coloured him in with Cosmic shimmer powders diluted in water. I added lots of doodling and a little strawberry to make the card a little more fruity.

I used papers: Basic Grey Infuse - Invest and 7 gypsies and blue and black cardstock. I distressed the edges of the paper with gold dauber duos and vintage photo distress ink. I watercolored my Tilda stamp and bench and used my paperartsy words stamp. I drew a freehand illustration of some cherries and watercolored them. Embellished with green sequins, buttons, ribbons and gold glitter.
