The card I'm sharing with you today is one I made a while back when the weather was not so good, and I had no internet .. .. so what else was there to do but craft! I got to play with one of the new Marianne Design border dies, Anja's Flowers CR1273, a set of two with the daisy edge and the plainer edge with the cut out sections - you can see it on the card in a bit. First, my image is a Sarah Kay stamp I've coloured with my Copic pens, and for the glittery edge I used Stardust Stickles and Pansy loose glitter, so very sparkly! I've moved the craft cupboard from the conservatory to the porch, it's closer to the dining table where I sit and craft and in the process of emptying things out and rearranging I found the box with all my loose glitters .. .. so expect to see more sparkle!
And here's the card in all it's sparkly glory! The papers are from the MD Hello Baby paper pack PB7041 and I've added the embossed faux stitching around the edges then inked with a grey/blue chalk ink so it stands out. The plain card is a coredinations piece in a purple/grey and the ribbon is a little piece of wired purple organza from my stash, being wired it keeps the shape of the bow quite nicely. Pale blue pearls finish things off.
The Crafty Creations challenge is to use at least two items from the recipe list they've given: I have flowers, die cuts, ribbon and purple so way to go! Crafty Little Fairies challenge is 'in the garden' so my card fits that theme too, and Sketchy Colors would like to see grey and lilac shades - perfect!
I still have lots of catching up to do .. .. still no fast broadband connection here so it can be a bit iffy at times getting about, but I hope to visit everyone who has left me a comment recently and catch up with my blogging friends soon.
