Last week’s Card & Cuppa project was inspired by Page 119 of the Annual Catalogue. My version has layers and leaves. As I don’t use the Big Shot at my Card and Cuppa classes due to space limitations, I chose to use punches to create the layers instead. Soft Sea Foam creates the gorgeous base

As you can see, I’ve not opted for the usual oranges, greens and browns for this project. It’s great to mix things up a bit with non-standard colour combinations. A lovely colour combination
