Papertake Weekly and a Fab Day

The challenge this week over on Papertake Weekly is to use hearts and/or flowers on your creation.

The image is one of Chris Dark's new digi-stamps available from Sketching Stamper Digi-Stamps. Coloured using watercolour pencils and a touch of clear sakura stardust in the flower centres, then lightly chalked the edges. Cut image using circle scalloped nesties then mounted onto green card cut into a hexagon. punched two holes at each point of hexagon then threaded orange organza ribbon finishing at the bottom with a bow. The background paper was a freebie from a magazine back from last spring. Added some tiny orange gems to the hexagon and green ones to each corner of card.

Had a fabulous day today, I met up with fellow blogger Emma from Crafty Emma for a coffee or two and a big slice of cake, with some naughty craft shopping, hope I wasn't a bad influence Emma. I bought quite a few goodies especially from the Range, and the little gems and ribbon in the above card are a very small portion of what I got. Thanks Emma for a great day, and hope to do it again soon xxx
