Exciting News to Share

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

I would like to thank you all for your comments while I have been on my travels.
I really appreciate all the support and inspiration you give me and I hope you enjoy your visits.

The journey home was a nightmare, it took me 6 hours to get home instead of 5!
Did I mention I HATE the M6!  Anyway got home safe and sound and slept like a log last night!

Today I have some really exciting news to share!

I have been asked to join the new World Wide Open Design Team which is 
sponsored by Sherri Ann Baldy

The new challenges start in July!

Here is a card I made using Banna Pie New Dress

Step by Step

1. 7 x 7 White square card which I have matted and layered purple mirri card.
2. The second layer is patterned paper from my stash.
3 I printed the image onto supersmooth and cut out with SB Curved Rectangle die, The image has been coloured with Copics. I distressed around the image with DI Shabby Shutters I then matted and layered onto green card.
4. I cut out the bunting using lilac card and the heart has been distressed with shabby shutters too.
5. I then added leaves, roses and green stamens to the centre of the heart and a gem butterfly.
6. To finish off I added green flat back gems.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges.
