I made it so I'm showing it


Today's card was for a challenge blog which sadly it appears I'm no longer a part of due to reasons I can't actually fathom out myself right now. As I took a lot of time and effort making it, as I always do, I thought I'd still share it with you anyway.

The gorgeous image is from a Penny Black set, Garden Friends. I have coloured with copics.

I added some flowers from my stash along with some doohickey die leaves. The gorgeous cream flower is by Prima. The butterfly border was punched with a Martha Stewart punch and so was the butterfly.
I added some ribbon from my stash and some more flowers on the other side of the image. The large paper flower was made with a doohickey die.
I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x

I'm not one for gossip usually. But I am intrigued. Last week (loved your sketch by the way I sooo wanted to participate but work got in the way) you were the "super talented DT member" and now you are not there. It must be a mistake! Gorgeous bunny BTW! Beautiful papers, lovely design layout! Perfect everything! Keep smiling! I'd have you on a team of mine any day! Hugs, Lesley
