CRAFTY CALENDAR JUNE CHALLENGE - PETALS AND PEARLS


Good afternoon peeps - and a big welcome to my new follower Margaret (Granmargaret), I hope you are all well and aren't suffering from the awful rain that's been forecast!  No sign of it here ............ yet!!!

Well today I am posting my second card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge Blog (here).  Our theme for June is Petals and Pearls and I am sure there are loads of you out there who will be making a card using the above as embellishments this month ... so come over and join in the challenge.  We are being sponsored by Dilly Bean Stamps and were given some gorgeous images to use.   They are also giving an image as a prize for the winner of the challenge.  The image I chose is called Penny's Heart and she is really beautiful.


I haven't used these images before and am really thrilled to have been given the chance to use one for the DT.  You really should check them out because there are so many to choose from!  I used a new die (on the dark purple card) called Aurora from the Die'sire 'cut and create' dies range - just scrummy!  My petals were from WOC and all the pearls around the edge were from Anna Marie Designs, the little spray of pearls came from my stash.

Ingredients

Digi Image - Penny's Heart from Dilly Beans Stamps
7" x 7" white card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Paper Pad - Promises by Nitwit from LOTV
Purple card - AC Textured Cardstock
Aurora die - Die'sire Cut and Create Dies
Layering Circle die - Tonic Dies
Sm Flower Punch - Nellie Snellen Punches
Flexmarkers
Pearl string - Anna Marie Designs
Flowers - WOC
Spray Pearls, Paper Ribbon Lace - stash

I hope you can enter our challenge, I would love to see all your petals and pearls!!!  I will be back tomorrow with another card for your perusal but I would like to thank you for stopping by and for having a quick check of my projects.  Thanks for any comments you may have made re my cards or re anything else I may have mentioned in dispatches.  Will give you an update on Blossom's diet tomorrow  Don't get excited though!!!

Big hugs to you all and please take care.

  7. Hi Sue
    Cor, how did you colour the hair to look so shiny. . . . . .wow! Such a pretty card.
    Blossom's diet? Have I missed something? Is she in training for an event or just attending feline Weight Watchers?
    I hope there no self esteem issues. Other cats can be so cruel!
