Special Challenge & Blog Hop

Floral Fantasies is hosting a very special challenge and blog hop.
Sir Stampalot has moved to new, larger premises in Peterborough and are the sponsors of this special challenge.
The magnificent first prize is....a Sissix Big Shot...there are also some lovely prizes to be won in the blog hop

The challenge is appropriately all about
"MOVING"
Your project can be a card, box, scrapbook layout, whatever you choose and the theme is open to interpretation, moving home, kinetic card, vehicle or as simple as a dangling charm as long as it represents movement.

I have used a dangly flower charm.
My jump rings are too big and I didn't know what to 'dangle' the charm from....then I had a brain wave and used a small length of the old neckalce that I used to make the pearl circles on the blue 40th card

'Love' is the theme at By the Cute & Girly
and the same at Charisma Cardz and
CRAFT challenge 36 - Valentines or Love
La-La Land 24 - Hearts
Magical Crafts 7 - Valentines
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Valentines or Love
Lili of the Valley - Valentines

.....so this looks appropriate for these challenges too




The rose is stamped and embossed on plain black card and with Silver Pearl embossing powder.




I am happily making good use of my lucky blog candy winnings.
The stamp is Penny Black from Kym.
The Papers are Anna Griffin from Steph
The charm from Crafty Catz

Thank you for stopping by and for your wonderful support :-)
