Hi and first of all 'welcome' to another follower, thanks for following my blog ...hope you will stay and enjoy my little offerings. Today my card is for Faith's challenge using the beautiful flowery digi image, wonderful to colour with my Promarkers. Paper is from kate Knight's Totally Tropical Summer papers that came free with a mag. Found some pink and lilac ric rac, made my own swirly 3d flower which sits on a Marianne Die cut flower.

I've pierced the edges with my sewing machine with no thread.

The flower die cut acts as a stopper to reveal what's on the inside...I made some pleats with a slim scrap of co-ordinating paper to hold my little gift card.

Challenges entered are 10... Designed 2 Delight, also their Designers challenge 'anything goes', Digi Stamps 4 Joy 'spring... add a handmade flower', Paper Shelter 'diecuts/punches', followed the sketch from Simon Says and rotated once, I Love Promarkers 'paper piercing', Cupcake Craft 'gift card', Papertake Weekly 2nd entry 'dies', Creative card Crew 'handmade flowers' and Little Darlings 'pleats and ruffles'. That's all for now, have a fab evening.
