Just for Robbie!

Oops! I was a little bit late posting this one - it's my DT card for the challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches, this week it's back to a colour challenge and we have these three lovelies for you....

Don't worry if you don't have the exact Stampin' Up shades, use your closest. Here's my card

I used my aqua painter to dilute the Primrose Petals into a beautiful pink sky.  When it was dry I stamped this image from a new set called Best Of Flowers, using the Gumball Green. I have been trying for a long time now to buy the original (retired) stamp of this image, called Upsy Daisy. I believe that it was only released in the USA and I love it so much, so when I saw this new mini version I just had to get it, and I'm glad I did!
I layered the image onto Cajun Craze card, then more Primrose petals.  Finally, I added cajun gems so that I could enter my card in the challenge at The Paper Players - for CAS with bling -just my thing!. The sentiment, from Perfectly Preserved, is bent to give more dimension and I've tied cajun raffia onto the two ends. You can see it all a bit better here

Must just tell you why I'm so late with this post.  My daughter and I went to see Robbie Williams last night in Manchester, about 3 hours from where we live - we got home very late (3am!) and so it was never going to happen this morning! The concert was AMAZING! We had so much fun, singing, dancing and he played all the best tracks from the past...brilliant. 


  1. What a beautiful sky you've created! Such a pretty use of these colors!

  2. Louise, A very pretty effect in the background - and the gems are a great addition. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week.

  3. The colors are so vibrant and striking against the white background! Very pretty! :)

  4. Beautiful colors, Louise! I love the gem border. Thanks for playing with the Paper Players!

  5. This is just beautiful, Louise. That pink sky is gorgeous! I love the layout too. How fun to see Robbie - I saw him a few years back when he toured Australia and it was unbelievable. XX

  6. So pretty, Louise! I love that blinged out frame. Thanks for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)

  7. A beautiful card Louise, and I'm Well-Jell you saw Robbie, hope you had a great time
