Footballer's Wives!

Later today, England's football team takes to the pitch in South Africa for their second match in the World Cup. But if football isn't your thing then why not join in with the second sketch challenge from Craftwork Cards. The sketch to follow, is below and you can see some of the Design Team's cards for inspiration over on the Craftwork Cards blog...
And here's my card for the challenge....
I used the beautiful Blossom collection of papers which are absolutely stunning and as usual the quality is superb. The various products come in a variety of seasonal colours, including pinks, blues, greens and yellows and there is something for all your crafting needs!

I chose to go for a summery feel to my card and was inspired by the colours of Neopolitan ice cream...strawberry, vanilla and chocolate. I combined Spellbinders dies and Martha Stewart punches to make my flowers and butterfly and added these to matts and layers of the Blossom collection papers. I added a greetings plaque, again from the collection and some beautiful organza ribbon.

And there it is...a card which every single time I look at it...makes me crave for that Neopolitan ice cream...

Good luck to our boys in South Africa and hope you all have a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend!!



  1. Wow Emma I love this card - aren't those colours gorgeous together!

  2. I agree...those colours are amazing together...I really love the contrasting patterns of the Blossom papers you used! the polka-dots and stripes go perfect together! and nicely topped off with that delicate and wispy lace ribbon!

    Beautifully done! :D <333
