You're Simply the Best

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Today I am sharing my first published card that has appeared in February's Issue of Card Making magazine.

I was messaged on Facebook by Sally Jarvis from the magazine and chosen to appear in the Handpicked feature.





Step by Step

1. 8 x 8 square scalloped card.
2. Mat and layered navy blue card and pearlescent blue card before adhering too card wrap navy ribbon around both layers.
3. Print of the image which is called Poppies by Mitzi Suto-Wuiff and coloured with Copics
4. Make a double bow and add pearl cabochon to the centre of the bow.
5. To finish off add the sentiment which I have distressed with DI chipped sapphire.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Cardz 4 Gals #15 - Fantastic Florals
Crafting with an Attitude - Always Anything Goes
Crafty-Girls-Creations #13 - Always Anything Goes
Southern Girls - Anything Goes
Artistic Inspirations #149 - Anything Goes
