With Love.......

A happy hello to you all my lovely crafty friends.

Over the last few days I have been very busy with design team work, so I decided to make something to enter some challenges with.

I hope you like the card I have made, I love these colours and of course pink is my favourite colour of all!


8x8 card blank/Fruit Garden 12x12 Paper Pad Tilda Panduro Hobby/Textured cardstock/cream card/Memento ink pad Rich Cocoa/Hero Arts Stamp Blooming Heart/Letraset Flexmarkers in shades...Pastel Pink,Shocking Pink,Saddle Brown/Greeting/Lace/Ribbon/Flowers/Bling/Decorative Pins.

How I made this...

Round the corners of the card blank. Cover with stripy paper from the 12x12 pack and trim. Ink the edges with the brown flexmarker. Attach a length of ribbon  the down the left hand side.
Cut textured cardstock 190mm x 140mm, round the corners ink the edges and stick to the base.
Cut flourish paper from the paper pack to 180mm x130mm, round the corners ink the edges and stick to the textured card stock.
Stamp the heart onto the cream card. Colour the flowers in with the pink flexmarkers, cut out the heart and ink the edges. Adhere to texture cardstock with foam pads and cut out carefully leaving a pink border. Use foam pads to attach this to the right of the card as shown.
Use brown, cream and pink lace to make a bow,glue to the top left corner and embellish this with bling, a flower and decorative pins.
Make a bow from the ribbon and attach to the ribbon already on the card.
Add your greeting to the bottom  and embellish with flowers, coiled stems and pearls.
Add pearls to the corners as shown.

I loved making this card, this stamp is one of my favourite stamps as you can use it for so many different occasions!
