White Linen card
Watercolour card
AltENew Happy Heart stamps and sentiment

 I stamped and embossed my flowers on a piece of watercolour card. I coloured them using my distress inks and then used a watery wash around the flowers. I stamped my sentiment  and adhered it to my card using 3d pads,also adding a strip of sparkly tape just under it. A sprinkling of sequins and my card topper was ready to attach to my A6 tent fold card base.

 You can see the lovely sparkly silver embossing better here. Looks great irl. ;)

The Flower Challenge #21 'Use a Previous Challenge'

Hi there friends, I hope all is well in your world today ;) It's time for another challenge over at
'The Flower Challenge' and this time we want you to 'Use a Previous Challenge'. You can see all of them if you go to our blog and look at the top tab there. Also say which challenge you are basing your card on please.

I have gone with Challenge #14 and 'CAS', being a lover of all things CAS it was an easy choice for me ;) I made a card a while ago then bought some new stamps and just had to use them on my card. So I am sharing two cards again this time. 
Anyway do come and have a peek, we hope you will all be inspired by the Design Team's cards and join in our challenge too ;)

ps. I have added a privacy policy to my blog also re- GDPR. It's a real pain isn't it, I know you all leave comments and anyone can see them. Your choice of course if you want to remove them and cookies too. I am just doing exactly what I always did and leaving comments for others as always. All this fuss  and faff and I think we will just do what we always did !

Enjoy your week whatever you have planned ;)

 I made an A6 tent fold card then made a watercolour panel slightly smaller than the top piece.I stamped and embossed my flower and then watercoloured it. I embossed my sentiment on black card and added it to my panel. A few prills were added to my flower centre and a scattering of sequins completed my card.

 I made my card base then another panel for the front. I stamped my flowers then overstamped with my vase stamp. Then I coloured my flowers and vase and used a Promarker to add some shadow below the vase. I cut my sentiment and added a bit of inking before adding the sentiment to my card.
