Hi all....well one card to cover a couple of challenges and alittle bit of good news i'd like to share with you.
Firstly i'm entering the Penny Black Challenge which this week the theme is "In The Garden"and i've followed this fabby sketch from Sketch Saturday.

I've used "Lazy Days" Penny Black stamp coloured with Prisma's,i've coloured and cut the flower three times and 3d'd in places using Pinflair glue gel.The main image as been cut out using Spellbinders Nesties "Labels Ten" and mounted onto the base card using dimensional foam tape.
The paper is My Minds Eye "Bloom And Grow" is the fabric brad.
The scalloped border as been punched using a Fiskars "Threading Water" punch.The bottom border i've added self adhesive pearls which i purchased from Hobby House.
I've used a Ek Success Retro Flower punch in two sizes to create the flowers around the image,finished in the centre's with more pearls again from Hobby House.
The ribbon and ric-rac from stash.
Now for the lovely news i'd like to share with you......i've been picked to join Ali and her DT on the "JUST CUTE BEARS" challenge....thank you so much i'm honoured to be part of such a fabby challenge and team :0)
Well that's it for now folks
