My Hobby House Card

Earlier this month I was very lucky to be the winner of the Birthday blog hop at Ready-Teady-Go (a VERY big thank you girls) and my prize was this fabulous cardmaking kit from The Hobby House.

This is the Wee cardmaking kit featuring Spring Bringer and Love Me Do and you can find it here.
I've not played with one of these card kits before and I must admit I was very impressed with the quality of the contents.
I've made this card and the only thing added that was not in the pack was a bit of foliage from the Memory Box Fabulous Phlox die. I probably went a bit OTT with the pearls and the pearl flourish does show up more IRL than the photo shows.The Wee toppers are all gorgous but I think this little girl with her cat is just so cute and the roses are the most fabulous colours.

maybe you can see the pearl flourish a bit better here

I shall enter this in thee following challenges
The Hobby House challenge 'Pearls' (my 2nd entry)
Bunny Zoe's Crafts challenge 'Shabby chic / vintage' (my 2nd entry)
Sketch N Stash challenge 'Sketch' (all my stash is new)
Divas By Design challenge 'Make it pretty'
The ABC challenge 'Z for zebra - black & white and/or stripes'
Craftyhands challenge 'Sparkle and bling'
A Creative Romance challenge 'Vintage style'
Crafting Musketeers challenge 'Pretty pastels'

Thanks for popping by and I hope you all have a great weekend.
