ABC Challenge.........................


Hello,

I have the privilege and honour to be invited by Vicky to be this weeks Guest Designer on the ABC challenge. This week it is F for flowers I just love flowers on my cards so how perfect was this for me. For my card I have coloured my image with distress inks. For the background I have used broken china, weathered wood and pine needles. I have also distressed my paper with pine needles. I have so loved everyone's flowers made using the ek success punches. But, I haven't been able to get hold of the right size so I used my quickutz dies, distressed them with pine needle, curled and edged them with gold pen. I sprayed the leaves with gold glimmer mist.

Thank you so much to everyone over at ABC I have so enjoyed being Guest Designer it has been such a pleasure. Please go and check out the rest of the design team creations they are just sensational!

Thank you so much for looking.

love kim x
