Hi everyone, I've been busy working on some bridesmaid, flower girl and page boy thank you cards for a friend but I've managed to make a card inbetween (whilst waiting for glue to dry). I've used my lovely Bella with presents stamp and coloured it with copics.
I've cut her out with a Spellbinder circle die and mounted her on a doily. The backing paper is also Bella. Behind the image I've added a strip of net with sequins running through it. I've had this in my stash for years. I can't imagine what possessed me to buy it, it must have been cheap! I spotted a challenge by Shopping our stash called 'What was I thinking??' and thought of this. It made me think of something to do with it and I'm pleased with how it turned out. I've added some glittery ribbon and various peeloffs from my stash. The flower has been made with a tonic petal pairs punch with Martha Stewart 'branch' leaves, with I punched from white card and coloured with a copic pen to match the grass in the image. The butterfly is Cheery Lynn.
I would also like to enter this for the following:-
