Butterfly Birthday

My first attempt at a creating a card by following a sketch. Really enjoyed it - I wouldn't have come up with this sort of layout myself - will definitely be more adventurous in future!

The background is Wisteria Paper Pad and the butterfly is printed from the Back to Nature CD. I've sparkled up the butterfly wings a bit and a Martha Stewart borner punch adds a bit of funk.

Gift Bag

Wow so I've had a busy afternoon! Decided to enter another challenge so decorated a plain white gift bag that was in the back of my cupboard - knew I kept it for something! I used My Mind's Eye papers, then stuck on some flowers and strips I made using Back to Nature CD. To finish I tied some green ribbon on and a gift tag.

Embossed Dandelions

I created this card by blending distress inks on a white piece of card, then using a beautiful Penny Black dandelion stamp on top. I then embossed the whole card in a lovely tropic lustre colour and added a few glitter spots for extra sparkle. This is the first time I have ever entered anything into a hope you like!
