Lili of the Valley Challenge

We were told this week...
Now on to this fortnights challenge, we would like to see ANIMALS somewhere on your card or creation, the girls have given you some great inspiration and we hope you can join us this fortnight. Don't forget it is not necessary to use Lili of the Valley products on your creations.

I have used a Penny Black stamp which has been coloured using Polychromos and sansodor.

The image and pink backer have been cut and embossed using my new Nesties - I love the shape of them. A piece of patterned paper has been layered onto plain green and then mounted onto the pale pink card. Self adhesive gems finish off the card to add a bit of bling. Both papers are from Dovecraft.

Cute Card Thursday

It's only friday and i've already got this done which is something of a first for me.

This is the challenge on Cute Card Thursday this week....

With Christmas getting closer and us crafters wanting to get a headstart on a busy time of year we thought we would help you to get the ball rolling and make a Christmas Card.

I stamped the Sarah Kay image in grey Versafine ink and coloured it using polychromos and sansodor. Glitter glue was added to parts give a sparkle, although this doesn't show up too well on the photo. The edges of the backer and the image have been cut using a scalloped blade and those on the image outlined with the same colour as the dress. A piece of dotty organza ribbon completes the card.Not traditional Christmassy colours but pretty nontheless.
The green paper is from Dovecraft and the ribbon from Ribbon Oasis.
