Sparkles Forum #4


Good morning to you all, wow I can't believe how fast January is going, I am sitting here feeling sorry for myself??? I have an awful cold.

Today at the Sparkles Challenge blog we have a Valentine request. We are being sponsored by Stitchy Bear

My card uses the image "Butterfly Love" and my backing papers are by Floppy Latte Designs. I have coloured the image with promarkers and added a sentiment some stickles and some ribbon.The sentiment is a stamp from Crafters Companion's Flower Fairies. I do hope you like

Do pop along to the rest of the DT blogs for some inspiration.

Hi Doreen
Have finally mastered adding myself to followers I love visiting you blog this card is beautiful. How do you have that look on the edges of your paper

Janie Printz said...

This is so darn cute !!! I LOVE your distressing & must give that a try. Wasn't too long ago if we got a little tear or messed up edge we would toss the paper away & start over. NOW we're doing it on purpose. WONDERFUL look ...
Hugs, Janie
