Confetti Time

Challenge number 3 for January over at the Counterfeit Kit Challenge Blog is to use confetti! "Too much mess!" I screamed, but they didn't listen couldn't hear me from across the Atlantic!!!  The other Master Forgers have no doubt been good and produced something totally in line with the challenge, but I have stuck to my guns and chosen to interpret the challenge in a non-messy, minimalist fashion ... with a card:


My poor step-mother has fallen and broken her wrist and I wanted to wish her a speedy recovery.  I've used a teeny tiny heart punch to make my "confetti" hearts along with my Threading Water punch and both sides of the Blue Ridge Paisley paper from my January Kit.  The alpha stickers are an added extra from My Little Shoebox.

By way of compensation for my rather sparse confetti, here is another card made from January's Kit, with  counterfeit pearl dots made with Ranger Liquid Pearls, counterfeit mistable ribbons made with Promarker coloured bedsheet, that same border punch, some flower punches and the addition of Cosmo Cricket alpha stickers:

I love your cards and I think using just a few still counts as confetti.

This is a lovely way to use border punches too. Less is sometimes more.

I like sparse and minimalist - they have turned out beautifully :)

These are both great; and I bet the clean-up was easy too! I'm with you!

So pretty...I was not a fan of the confetti challenge either. Love, love, love the CKC but usually struggl to love te theme of the challenges!

Miss the blog hops though!

Both cards are lovely, but I LOVE the colors in the second one with the cluster of flowers and butterflies. Beautiful!
