{DDCC Design Team Project + Stamp Something + ABC Challenge}
Okay, by now you all no my weekly drill of completing my Dutch Dare Card Challenge design team project. This week the theme is to create a triangle card. I probably haven't interpreted the challenge 100%, but I thought that my triangle iris folding design would be suitable. The triangle shape is probably the easiest iris folding design shape I have done thus far. I really enjoyed creating this iris folding project and would probably use the triangle iris folding design much more in future.
I am also entering this card into this week's challenge over at Stamp Something where the challenge this week is to create a card with black, white and one other colour. My one other colour is grey. The card's colours are actually true black and white and I apologise for the slightly yellow tint in the photos, but at least you are getting the idea ... I hope ... Then I am also entering this creation into this week's ABC Challenge's Two Tone theme.
Below is a photo or two of the nectar bottle I was telling you all about in a few posts back. The nectar drinking birdies just love this bottle filled with one third brown sugar and two thirds water. The winged tribe definitely like their drink shaken and not stirred, so just shake the sugar and water thoroughly in the bottle until all the sugar has dissolved. Once they have discovered it in your garden, they probably take just over one week to finish it. As I have mentioned before, I purchased this bottle at our local pet shop. There are colourful beads adhered to the wire holder which probably is giving locals new job opportunities.
Off to start with my latest commission for 40 wedding card invitations. Then there is also 80 pillow gift boxes for the tables ... seems like these pillow boxes just can't stop haunting me in their numbers galore.
Thank you once again for all your lovely comments. I know there are quite a few of DL's regular followers that still struggle to access the site and I am sure Mr Blogger is still slaving away at fixing this problems. So thanks for all your patience.

    Hi Desire,

    Absolutely love the triangle card - so unusual. I also think the bottle of nectar for the birds is brilliant. I wonder if there is somewhere in KZN where we could buy one of these? DH and I love watching the birds in our garden and this would attract a whole range of new birds!
    Lotsa love,
    Carol (the other TP)

  6. The black and white card is stunning. The folded iris pattern looks great in a triangle. I agree with Carol, I need to find one of those bottles here in KZN as we also have lots of birds in our garden and this would attract even more, I am sure.

  7. Desire this is stunning!

    Ek wil ook so 'n nektar bottel aanskaf. Hier was onlangs 'n suikerbekkie in ons tuin wat gereeld in my kamervenster kom sit het maar nou sien ek hom nie meer nie. Dis 'n pragtige ou voëltjie en ek wil graag meer van hulle na ons tuin lok.
