Bad Taste Card

Greetings - I have been busy but cannot share some of what I have made, yet...
but on to todays card.


I saw these images as freebies on Create with TLC and immediately thought of my friend, who this morning was (quite deliberately) the "Queen of Bad Taste", and with whom I had a few jokes about weight control - something we both have issues with :-).

Loved this wee one with her 'cuddly' figure, and the orange and pink combination, which is where the colour scheme started.  She is mounted on some very textured wallpaper that I recycled, which I  sponged with orange ink before mounting on the orange card.  The saying was deliberately slipped under her foot.

Then there were too many voids, something that doesn't usually worry me, but it was just too stark, so I made a pink flower that I 'found' how to make here  on Becca's blog, and mounted it on pink ribbon.



Next came some bling, and some doodles around the edge and it was finished.

A little bit of fun that came together very quickly.

I am linking this to:

Thank you for visiting, and may your day be blessed.

  26. So cute! I LOVE all the bright summer colors and your flower is so awesome. I never would have thought of rolling up a border punch to create a flower. Very clever idea your friend had. Shhhh, don't tell, but I've gained a few pounds recently. But it didn't stop my from having chocolate pecan in a waffle bowl from Baskin Robbins this weekend. Our daughter has been here visiting, so I splurged! The only thing is was missing was some chocolate syrup and a cherry on top. I hope you are having a fabulous week Maxine!
