Wow, what a fabulous person Darnell is..... she packed this glorious weather in her suitcase and bought it all the way over here to England for us to enjoy and I must say I'm enjoying every second of it. For those of you who don't know her then I would encourage you to pay a visit as she's sure to brighten your day with her fun tales.
Anyways on with my card...... in my last post I used a Penny Black stamp 'flower gala' and told you there were 2 stamps in this set, well this is the other stamp. I coloured it with my usual Promarkers with a few touches of Sakura glitter pen added (but they don't show up in the photo), wrapped a piece of lace (the last little bit I have) around, then matted onto some pearlescent card before attaching to the base card. The sentiment was a preprinted one (but not sure where from) which I cut with a nesting die and then stuck to a Marianne Designs fancy circle die cut from the snippet of leftover pearlescent card. I die-cut 2 butterflies also from card snippets and covered them with Stickles and added pearls for the bodies. To finish I added a bow and a couple of heart shaped pearls.
I shall enter this in the following challenges
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
Passion For Promarkers challenge 'summer flowers'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'anything goes with a stamp and ribbon'
Uniko challenge 'flowers'
The Ribbon Girl challenge 'use any image'
Noor! Design UK challenge 'anything goes + option of chipboard'
Aurora Wings challenge 'tic tac toe' (I used lace / flowers / bow)
I'm sorry I haven't been around blogland much lately but I'm still trying to get myself fit. I went for an MRI scan yesterday so should have the results in a couple of weeks or so and then I can get things sorted. Thanks for popping by today and I hope you have a great week.
