All that glitters with Creative Knockouts

Hi everyone.

There's a new challenge over at Creative Knockouts.

Our theme for this week is All that glitters. We're being sponsored by The Paper Shelter, who very kindly gave us images to play with and are offering a fab prize for one lucky winner.


Here's my card, using a lovely image and backing paper called There's a fairy in my tea. You can find the image here.


I've coloured using copics and have added glamour dust to the wings and the die cut butterfly. I've also used glitter pens on parts of the fairy's dress.




The sentiment is Lili of the Valley.


I hope you'll join us. Thanks for visiting.

Just Because with Ruby's Rainbow

Hi everyone.

There's a new challenge starting over at Ruby's Rainbow.

Our theme for this fortnight is 'Just Because'. 

We don't always need an occasion or a reason to make a card or a gift for someone, sometimes it's nice to do it just because we can. I've made a special gift for my best friend because I wanted her to know how much she means to me. Here's what I made...


The sentiments are by Lili of the Valley. I've used my favourite butterfly flourish, which I bought from Joanna Sheen, and a couple of Sue Wilson Poinsettia dies. The backing paper is by The Paper Shelter. Here's the other side...


The picture was taken at my wedding in 2006.  The backing is the same gold pearl paper I used to make the flowers on the front. I finished off with a small flower like the ones on the other side. Both sides have heart shaped doilies.

I really enjoyed creating this because I knew it would mean so much to my friend. I hope you'll join us for this challenge. Hope to see you there.

Hugs
