A Pocket Full of Posies Challenge - Peach and Aqua.....

Hello,

I hope you had a great weekend!

Today I have had the great pleasure of being invited to be guest designer for the challenge A Pocket Full Of Posies. Thank you so very much for inviting me girls. It has been an honour to join you!


The challenge starting today is to use the colours Peach and Aqua.

For my card I have stamped my Magnolia image with Archival coffee onto 300gsm hp water colour paper. I have distressed the background with old paper. I have then distressed the edge of this and everything else on my card with walnut stain. I have added sparkle with Star Dust stickle glue. I was very lucky to win the fabulously talented  Tammi's blog candy and in it were these beautiful papers by Webster's. Thank you Tammi I love them!


Thank you again girls for inviting me and I would urge you to go see the beautiful creations that the DT have made just stunning!

Huge thanks for visiting with me and have a wonderful week!

love
