Hi ladies...
Well it's back to business after the weekend, more housework, washing, cardmaking, shopping to do. So, I was looking at my cards and decided that I need a more sophisticated range for the older clients at my village market.
I looked at some challenges for some inspiration and came up with this card.
The first challenge was Colour Create and their colour theme of 'Burnt Orange, Black and Cream' is so perfect for a more classy sophisticated card.

Next was Charisma Cardz and their challenge 'Quote me'. I found a sheet of K&Co peel offs in my stash with some beautiful sentiments.

Finally Allsorts Challenge were showing a beautiful butterfly bracelet and asking us to 'Be Inspired'. I used a Sizzix Butterfly and I layered a couple up and added some black sequins and orange beads.
So Thank you Challenges...I was inspired. Show you more tomorrow.
Wishing all of you an inspirational day today!
