Couture Creations Doily Die Cut Cards

Hello there everyone, 
is it my turn again today 
Today I have created 2 cards using the same

I wanted to show you all how you can create different styles of cards 

so I created a very very rustic and earthy card, and
a elegant pretty card. 

In my first card I used the doily die cut

Before I glued the doily to my card, I dabbed some paint over the 
doily to create a very rustic, earthy metal look
then added some metal embellishments, in the centre.

Next is the Elegant Pretty card, 

After cutting the Doily from paper I applied double sided foam tape
and attached it underneath the Doily to give a 3D look.
I added some pink Couture Creations Pearls

Hope you like the 2 different styles of cards 
using the same Doily die cut.   - C0723223

CSI#79 - Orroroo

Hi there everyone,CSI #79 sketch is up and running this week 
and with such an amazing colour palette, 
I just had to join in.

So here is my page that I have created
using a photograph on one of our travels in the countryside.
"Orroroo" is a little town just before you enter the 
Flinders Ranges in South Australia.
Driving along everything is dry and barren
A little rain fell down and then
the sunshine follow - we had to stop
and look at the view and take photos of the
awesome Rainbow that appeared before us.
I think you can see the rainbow there
in the distance inside the photo. 
It was so clear and right above us.

I love the poem by Dorothy McKellar "My Country"
she explains in her poem what Australia means to us.
I have printed some of the poem and placed on my page.

For evidence 

Rub-ons - Australian Flags

For Element
4 Journalling reasons why I scrapped this page
(1. I love a sunburnt country, a land of sweeping plains, 
2. I love her far horizons, I love her jewel seas,
3. Her beauty and her terror, the wide brown land for me, 
4. Core of my heart, my country, land of rainbows gold)

I think this sums up why I love this country, and very proud to be an Australian.

Here is ONLY an portion of the poem
(Just the parts I like) Hee hee

My Country a poem by
Dorothea McKeller

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of droughts and flooding rains,
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me.

Core of my heart, my country!
Her pitiless blue sky,
When sick at heart, around us,
We see the cattle die -
But when the grey clouds gather,
And we can bless again
The drumming of an army,
The stealthy soaking rain.

Core of my heart, my country!
Land of the rainbow gold,
For flood and fire and famine,
She pays us back threefold;
Over the thirsty paddocks,
Watch, after many days,
The filmy veil of greenness
That thickens as we gaze.

Well that's all for today!
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend :)
