I can't believe the half term holiday is nearly over, it's gone so quick. I've been so busy with the kids this week I haven't had much time to make any cards, but I did manage to grab an hour this morning!
The Penny Black Saturday Challenge is 'Lace and Pearls' and the I love Promarkers Challenge is 'Nature', so I've tried to combine the two. The Penny Black stamp that I've used for this card, is called 'Buzz in the Air'.
The background paper is 'Spring Drop' from First Edition. The photo doesn't really show the colours up very well, but the papers in this pad are absolutely gorgeous. You need one to use and one to keep!
I've coloured the little hedgy with promarkers, and I've added some glitter to the bumble bee's wings.
I always struggle with really fussy cards, so I was a bit worried when the challenge said 'lace'. I found this flower lace in my local haberdashery a few weeks ago, and couldn't resist!
I added a few pearls in the centre of the flowers in the background paper. I've used a marianne creatable die for the fence and the bird box, and spellbinders edgeabilities for the central band.
Well, it's number one son's 7th birthday tomorrow and I haven't made his birthday cake yet, or wrapped his pressies! I can't believe how quickly the time has gone. I had better go and get baking!!
Thanks for taking the time to stop by and for all your comments.
Until next time
