Cardmaking Outdoors

I wanted to make some cards today but it was so gorgeous outside I didn't want to miss the beautiful day either. So since there was only a very light breeze, I set myself up to make cards outside, it was so nice to work out there and listen to the birds chirping away. I'll definitely be scrapping outside more often!

While outside I made two cards. The first follows CPS sketch 71 and uses coffee coloured papers as suggested at Papertake this week.


The second follows Sketch This 71 and the Daring Cardmakers challenge to make a snow inspired card.

Can you tell I love blues and browns togther?!

I’m loving those little snowmen….aren’t they cute!
The Blue and Brown you’ve used go wonderfully together and the resulting card is very cool.

Lovely cards, Rosanne, love the blues and browns. Great winter card! Wish I could scrap outside, but things would get rather wet today...
