Pickin Apples......

Hello,

I hope life is good for you and you are well. Spring is definitely in the air it was 23 degrees Celsius here today!


I would like to share a card I have made using an Elisabeth Bell Sugar Nellie discontinued image.

I have coloured my image with distress ink pads.

The border has been die cut using a Martha Stewart punch.

The flowers have been sprayed with marshmallow glimmer mist.

The stickles I have added are star dust.

Here is the inside left of my card.


Here is the inside right of my card.



Thank you so much for your visit!

I have listed this card on Ebay if anyone is interested here.


love
