Morning thought I'd start my posting for today early as I'm about to pick up my terror of a grandson.....I call him a terror now in the nicest way possible as hes into everything and if he can find water to get himself wet then he'll find it .....apparently he watered his mums handbag with a watering can, unfortunately her mobile doesn't like water...ahhh !
Todays card is a Dt card for a challenge later on in the week so your're getting a sneek peek, the stamp is from Crafty Individuals, I swooshed the tag in 3 distress inks that I spritzed with water, did the same with the background paper but instead of using water I used glimmer mist to get a lovely sheen to the paper, and then embossed in gold the dragonflies, I sprinkled gold embossing powder to the stamped image and used star dust stickles for the flowers, the other flowers are from Wild Orhid crafts, the cherry blossom flower started life as white but i distressed and glittered them to go with the colour scheme of the rest of the card.

Wild Orchid challenge.....one for the girls.
Pocket full of Posies.....all that glitters.
Simon Says stamp and show (Vintage)....things with wings.
Sweet stamping....pretty in pink.
Flutterby.......fave colour (pink).
Dezinaworld.....Ice maiden.
Friday sketchers.....sketch.
our creative corner.....embossable.
Magical monday....pink and white (mines more off white)
