A Special Lady

Happy Friday everyone - not long now until the weekend!

There's a new challenge over at Simply Papercraft today ...

As usual the challenge is 'Anything Goes' which makes it so much easier to join in. Today's sponsor is the fabulous Morgan Fitzsimmons at Morgan's ArtWorld - a lovely place to pick up some gorgeous fantasy images and digital stamps...

This is what I have created using one of Morgan's images...

I'm so please with how this has turned out - I think I'll give it to one of our Mams on Mother's Day this Sunday.

I've used some mint green polka dot paper from my stash and coloured the image using co-ordinating pro-markers - a die cut circle in the patterned paper gives the effect of a mount.

As a border around the circle, I've used various die-cut leaf swirls and punched daisies with coloured flat-backed pearls from my stash as centres. The greeting is a digi stamp I've had for years by Hannelie at Desert Diva.

I've entered this card into the challenges at:

Moving Along With The Times - die-cut flowers
Creative Inspirations #271 - anything goes
Inky Chicks #80 - flower embellishments
Crafty Cardmakers #184 - for a special woman
Fab n Funky Challenges - use flowers
Passion For Pro-markers - girl power 
Morgan's ArtWorld - anything goes
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - more than 1 die/punch
So get yourselves over to Simply Papercraft and join in the fun - it's only a click away!

Thanks for visiting
