I just love this image from Mo Manning.  I was asked to make a card for a girl who was about to take her black belt in Karate, and this was the perfect image, don't you think ??  Simply coloured in promarkers, with a bit of black diamond stickles glitter for her belt.  Black and white papers, white pearlised card embossed with swiss dots, and the two way card design, black ribbon to tie.  Simple but sooo sweet x

Flower Pop Up Card

This floral card brings the season of spring, which seems to be extremely hot for a change, loving it !!  Orange Core Card from Tim Holtz, which has been sanded back, some white flowers used for the main feature, which have been distressed using orange and brown inks.  Stunning rose paper from stash, and a simple sentiment from Stampin Up.  A handmade box, the perfect fit for this pop out design.  Now spring is in full bloom, let's hope summer is as nice....... x

I love the little Amy digi from Crafty Sentiments so have coloured her again for this weeks challenges.  The paper is from Bearly Mine and the sketch is part of their challenge this week., one of their lovely free downloads. Amy is coloured with Promarkers, then double layered, for a decoupage effect, simply adding a few pearls, rose, and a loving sentiment.
