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.

Lollipop Ladies No 71 - musks (with spots)

Lollipop Ladies challenge No 71 is musks (with spots)     This is the inspiration photo

 This is my card
My scanner doesn't scan colours properly, the pattern paper and washi tape are the same colour as the large flower.
I have embossed light pink card with Cuttlebug "swiss dots".  Layered paper from  Authentique "Uncommon" 6x6 pad and washi tape over the pink card.   I have used Annabelle stamps from abs058 Standing Tall set.  The sentiment onto the pink card and the flowers printed onto white card, coloured with markers, cut into circle and layered over dark pink card and attached to light pink card.  Then layered all onto dark pink card.
I have used Annabelle stamps which I have had for a while as they are the sponsor for this challenge.  There is a special on at the moment.

Guest DT spots are able to be won each fortnight
