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.

More Mixed Media June challenge - Purple

More Mixed Media challenge - anything goes optional purple (use a little or a lot)

I don't know why my scanner doesn't scan the colours correctly.   My card is a very pretty purple but it looks blue in the scan.
I embossed purple card with Cuttlebug Christmas stars embossing folder
Sponged white card with distress inks.  Used star stencil with purple ink for stars and stamped Lavinia stamp.
Stamped Happy Birthday and added ribbon and star brads and layered onto purple card.
Layered all onto white card.

I would like to add my card to the following:
