This is one of the lovely cards I received from a swap I was in for a demonstrator group. Diane Shaw made the card and I was so pleased to receive it. Diane has kindly given me permission to post it here for you all to enjoy. She has used the Heartfelt Thanks stamp set which I have had for a long time and this card has made me want to get it out again. Unfortunately the two half pearls beside the flower didn't scan very well but you will get the idea. The colours used are Pink Passion and Pretty in Pink. I really love this card.

I'm back...........

Well it has been a few weeks since my last post as I have been recovering from surgery. Not fully recovered yet but getting there. I am pleased to announce that the Stampin' Up! Bushfire Appeal has raised over $58,000 so far and it doesn't finish till this Sunday. See my previous post for details.
I have a card to show you today which I made for my friend, Carolyn. I have stamped the image twice and cut out some of the butterflies and dragonflies and mounted them up with dimensionals. You can't see it in the picture but there is Dazzling Diamonds on all the wings for that added bling.

Card Details:

Stamp Set - Level 1 Hostess, A Little Bit of Happiness

Cardstock - Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Whisper White

Inks - Stazon Black, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Sage Green

Accessories: White Grosgrain Ribbon

Technique - Colouring using Ink Pad Lids and Blender Pen
