About Me

Welcome to my blog

I started this blog in April 2012 so I could join Challenges. I am now on some design teams. I hope you like my cards. I started stamping in 1995 but my cards are still mostly cute.
Thank you to those who have joined as followers and to those who comment.
Unfortunately because of spammers I have had to put moderation on the comments. I will approve them as soon as possible, this also means I don't miss any.
I don't always get a chance to reply to all comments but I read them all when I approve them and I really appreciate you taking the time to give your comment.

Moonflower facebook challenge - Oriental flowers

The June challenge on the Moonflower facebook group is Oriental Flowers

I have embossed yellow card with cuttlebug Plum Blossoms embossing folder.  Added a piece of exotic paper and glitter washi tape.  
Printed out Moonflower digi stamp Oriental Maiden which was a free image with the Moonflower newsletter.  Coloured her with markers and layered on top.  Added rhinestones, sequin flowers and butterfly with sequins.  Layered all onto red card.
If you subscribe to the mailing list  on the Moonflower blog you will receive a free digi with each newsletter.

I would also like to add this card to the following challenges:

Butterfly Challenge - Butterfly + S for sequins (there are sequins on the butterfly plus 3 sequin flowers)
