Butterflies for Earth Day - Festive Friday challenge #156

Hibiscus for Paper Players #681

Happy Sunday and greetings from somewhere off the east coast of Vietnam!

It's the fabulous Joanne's turn to host our Paper Players challenge this week and - once again - I managed to NOT see the CLEAN and SIMPLE on this challenge.  Grrrrrr.... but... as I am thousands of miles away from my crafting goodies I'm stuck with it!  Note to self... next time you are rushing to get things done before a trip - stop and read!!!!!

Here's a preview of my NOT SO clean and simple card!

And here is Joanne's challenge for this week:

Flowers and slimline were definitely a theme before I left.  Am I the only one that gets into a rut and tends to use the same layout or elements?  Or was it just because I was in such a rush and didn't have time to think of anything else???  Anyway, I pulled out an old set from the Greetery Botanicuts Hibiscus.  I honestly don't think I have used this often at all and looking at this card I really wish I had stopped and added some shading!!!!

Anyway, here you go:


As always, the design team have some fabulous inspiration for youo:

I hope you will join us and play along this week.  We would love to see what you create with Joanne's challenge.  I'll be back in a couple of days with a catchup travel post - I'm way behind on that!  In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.

Jaydee, these hibiscus are so lovely! They look real! Love the slim line look and the light gray makes it all pop! I hope your journeys are fabulous this week! Love to you!

Jaydee your post made me chuckle - you were clearly 'in the zone' lol! Besides, you're not too far off clean and simple - there are layers, but plenty of white space and no embellishments - and a nice good luck sentiment to boot! Those hibiscus do make a lovely centrepiece for sure. Happy onward travels!

Anne Marie Hile
