Either of these two cards will qualify for this week's challenge to use flowers. Easy Peasy!!
Don't know what has happened to my camera but believe it or not the froggy card has fuschia pink paper and colouring but seems to have come out looking rather purple.
Papers for both are from cosmo cricket 'delovely' mini deck. Crystals applied using prima stencil. Both images coloured with promarkers and copics.

lili of the valley again!!

Found some nice large 8x8 card and envelopes in my local craft shop at a decent price and make nice large cards with plenty of space to create on!! - Love this lili of the valley image. Blooms made with new marianne designs die, centres were small flowers purchased in the U.S.A embossed with cuttlebug folder, tinted with promarker around the edges and glittered with stickles crystal glue. Greenery is Martha Stewart fern punch. Papers are D.C.W.V. Image coloured with promarkers.


These three images make up the card for a forthcoming christening. The numbers on the engine and the wagons are made up of information about the little boy. His date and time of birth and his weight and also the date of the christening itself. Engine and wagons were cut from bazzill on the cricut and then put through cuttlebug folders to give texture. Inked around the edges for more definition. Buttons are by doodlebug. Text created with large doodlebug rubons - 'all mixed up' Gingham ribbon is from the papermania capsule collection.
