I hope life is being good to you and that you are enjoying the start to your Easter break.

Here is a card I made. I have coloured my image with distress ink pads. My image was stamped with versafine black onyx onto Waterford watercolour paper.

The background is distressed with antique linen and I have edged this and my papers with walnut stain. The borders were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The flowers have been iridescent gold glimmer misted to within an inch of their lives and then I have added star dust and gold stickle glue. The tiny dots are liquid pearls.

I have been given this award by these gorgeous and amazingly talented girls. Claire, Sarpreet, Jane, Georgia Barbara , Carola, and Guro.

Thank you so much girls you are just so very lovely to think and pass this onto me and it means so much to know that you would give this to me. I would like to pass this onto everyone who visits my blog as you are all so very talented and I would like to say a huge thank you for your amazing support to me!

Well, thank you so very much for visiting me I really appreciate it. Also, I would like to send you lots of hugs and kisses for your taking the time to leave me comments you are all so very kind I thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Have a wonderful day!
