Andrea and Paper Flower Card

Lol.....forgot to upload the image....second time lucky.

Morning everyone, it is a drizzly rainy day here today. Part of my catching up with my friend yesterday meant that we wandered around the shops. :-) Finally, I bought an acrylic block long enough to hold this wonderful 'Andrea' stamp from Ruth over at A Passion for Cards. I also spied these wonderful dressmaker pins in the $2 shop and bought a small container. I have seen people adding these to their flowers and ribbons and cards and it just is a great finishing touch.

The card was created for the Weekly Inspiration Challenge I set over at Craftmad. Theme: - Green and Cream. I have used a cream card for the base card which matched the Heather Bailey paper I received. Can you tell I really really like this paper. :-) The image is backed with SU Sage Shadow. I have coloured the image with SU Soft Subtles inkspots and my aqua pen. Copic pen E51 for her body. The ribbon and paper flower is from Blue Edge Crafts. I have topped the paper flower with two punched out paper flowers and a touch of bling. And used my dressmaking pin for the first time.

Exciting news I won the random draw for my circle easel card I created for my Mum's birthday over at There She Goes. They have a wonderful sketch for their challenge this week.

Lastly, thought you might find this interesting reading.....I did! :-) A post over at Going Green Crafters and Artists.......'My Blog is Carbon Neutral' I am off to plant a tree.
