Penny Black Saturday Challenge......Circles

This weeks challenge was to create a circle card. I have used 2 nestabilities scalloped circles and tied them together with some ribbon. I have then added a smaller circle with a penny black stickeroo. Also added gems and glitter for sparkle!

Head over to Penny Black Saturday Challenge to have a look at the beautiful examples!

Creative Corner Challenge...OCC Crazy for Hearts

Here is my card for this weeks challenge over on 'Our Creative Corner'. The challenge this week was to create a card using 2 hearts or more.

This is a very simple card. I have stamped the same image 3 times using 'Peony' versacolor pigment ink. I have cut out and layered using foam pads. I have added magenta coloured grosgrain ribbon and also some crystals to the top and bottom corners. I have also glittered the hearts to add some sparkle!

Hope you like it. Head on over to creative corner as they have some beautiful card examples for inspiration.

Papertake Weekly Challenge

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all well and enjoying your weekend. I have made the below card for the weekly papertake challenge, Dawnys Sketch #6. You can view the blog here.

I coloured in the stamp using some Whispers brush markers and stamped a few times with one inking giving it a faded look which I think looks quite effective. I then added different coloured blue crystals, mounted on to blue cs and added an organza knot.

I hope you all like it. Picture does not do justice. Going to bed now as have to be up early for work tomorrow.
