My First GD Card!!!

I am absolutely delighted that my first GD spot is for Crafty Ann’s Challenge Blog
I was thrilled to bits to be chosen for March as it is my birthday and anniversary month.
Thank you Ann, for giving me this opportunity :-)

This fortnight’s theme is a colour challenge and you must include Lilac, Pink and Lemon in your project

The flower is one of Ann’s Digi Downloads printed on to paper stamped with words and inked edges.
I filled the centre of the flower with Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Flakes.
The BP’s are from Ann’s Polished Stone collection. I used a MS border punch for the strip and a Fiskars corner punch

Ink pads - ColorBox fluid chalks - Creamy brown,Rouge, Wisteria
Flower - Crafty Ann’s - 3D short petal flower
BP’s - Crafty Ann’s polished stone collection
Circle - Nellie Sneddon multiframe
MS punch
Grosgrain ribbon
Butterflies from blog candy win

I feel so honoured to be a guest alongside this talented DT this month.
Do pop over to the challenge blog to see their beautiful work ... join in if you can and I will enjoy visiting your blogs to see your creations.

Irene, firstly congratulations on your Guest Designer post. I hope you enjoy the experience like I did. What a gorgeous centrepiece of the flower. I've printed onto patterned papers for clothes for people/bodies of animals but hadn't thought of it for flowers. Well I've learnt something new today - I never knew Cosmic Shimmer did glitter flakes - and I'm not going to go looking either or I might get addicted to something else!!!

Best wishes, Kym xxx
