MAWTT 3 in a row

This week it's Sue B's turn to host the challenge over at Moving Along with the Times and she chose as her theme 'Three in a Row'. WHAT I DIDN'T DO IS CHECK TO SEE WHAT THE THREE IN A ROW ENTAILED AND IT WAS MEANT TO BE A BINGO THREE IN A ROW, Therefore my card doesn't fit the criteria specified - so much for this design team member being on the ball! lol Please come along and join in with us and see if you can make a card that fits the bill. This is the Bingo card - please tell us which row you have used.

I can't believe this because I'd had so much hassle getting the card made in the first place.
I managed to get it started and then I had so much bother getting this card finished. My eyes have been really bad for weeks now and, fortunately, I was way ahead with all my DT cards, until this week! Ugh. To top it all off my grand calibur broke today as I was trying to emboss so my card has turned out completely different from the way it was imagined.

My large card blank is by Craft UK and the backing paper is from a vintage pad from The Works. I rounded the corners with my Carl corner punch. I'm so pleased that I'd managed to get the butterflies cut before the GC died completely. They are Spellbinder butterfly dies, medium and small size. The bunting is a Signature die by Joanna Sheen and the sentiment stamp is from a freebie in a magazine
(I think, if my memory serves me right) lol. The pink and purple card is all by Papermill.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Scrapper's Delights Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Things that Fly
Mema's Crafts March Challenge - Anything Goes
The Sisters of Craft Challenge - Anything Goes


  1. Oh no - what a sad story about your GC! The layered butterflies add a real touch of bling and texture against that background. x Jessie

  9. Your card turned out beautifully despite everything Hazel. My GC is on it's way out too...although it owes me nothing. I'm hoping it holds on until the new SB machine is out. Carol x

  10. Gorgeous card Hazel! So pretty and feminine.
    You aren't alone Hazel! I've happily made a DT card before and didn't even think about the challenge theme at all! I couldn't do anything but laugh when I'd finished & realised and had to start all over again lol.
    Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
