The Big Day

I just fell in love with this new image from Lili of the Valley and bought the digi images as soon as it went of sale on Friday.

I have coloured the image with pencils, embossed the background and the flowers are made from the Dreamees stamps.

A Gem of a Challenge

My first post since Christmas, been a busy few weeks.  Our new challenge has started over at A Gem of a Challenge and the theme this time is Hearts and/or Flowers.

For my card I have used the topper sheet Pretty Poppy in Blue.  I just love her cute, butter wouldn't melt, little face.  I have decoupaged the roses and butterflies and added  gems and glitter.

A Gem of a Challenge # 183

I am so late in doing my post for this challenge and as I am the host I feel really bad about that.  Sorry to my team mates.

The new challenge started yesterday at A Gem of a Challenge and the theme for this fortnight is Snowmen/Women.  Janet at Pink Gem Designs has so many gorgeous images on the website that it is hard to choose which ones to use.

For my card I have used Chilly with Lamp, this is the card topper kit available Here.  These are so easy to use and great for quick cards and they can be resized.

The winner of this challenge will be able to choose 2 individual digi images or 2 card topper kits
or one of each.
