Hello There Blue Eyes.

This week I was supposed to be in hospital have an op on my back but it was cancelled last minute. (sad Face). So to cheer myself up I thought I would enter Sarah's Cards Challenge as I thought I was not going to be able to find the time earlier in the month! Every grey cloud has a silver lining!

When I saw this sketch I knew there was a technique I wanted to try. I got two sheets of cream cardstock and got to work cutting one of them out.
I have not got a machine to cut wonderful shapes for me so armed with a knife and ruler I cut my background out and backed the diamonds with paper from the Authentique Uncommon line. I have been holding these papers back for a perfect time to use them and I am glad I did as the colours were perfect for my photo of my daughter on holiday last year.
I had even bought some of the chipboard and word stickers that go with the line which I don't normally do, but they made the task of putting the page together so easy.

For the top corner I added some scraps, fussy cut flowers and some word stickers too.

I am so glad I managed to squeeze a layout in for this month's challenge as Sarah's Cards have fab sketches, some of which really take you out of your box. So if you have time in the next few hours you might want to enter a layout as there is a great prize for a lucky winner.
All the details are HERE.
