Baby Balnket

Good Morning Everyone, 
Last Friday morning my lovely Hubby drove all the way to Leeds so that I could visit the LOTV shop and I have to say ... it's GORGEOUS!! The rooms are very bright, there's a lovely atmosphere  and it's bursting with crafty stash!
I met the lovely Anne and the fabulous Dawny P too! I also had the best carrot cake I've had in ages!! lol
I bought one or two new stamps, two or three pads of paper and some dies!! I had to keep hold of a few pennies as I'm hoping to go to the Great Northern Papercrafting Extravaganza in Harrogate next week!!
I made today's card with one of the stamps I bought. This is 'Baby Blanket'.
She's coloured with promarkers. Most of you know that I colour quite dark so to keep just a hint of colour was very hard!!

I've used a 'daisy and swirls' embossing folder and finished with a bit of ribbon and some bling from my stash
I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
Lillies Little Fairies Challenge- White with a hint of colour
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

I also bought one of the new little Geisha girl stamps. I'm making a card 'just for fun' with this one but it's taking me longer than I thought!! lol It could be the end of the week before you actually see it!!
Thanks for visiting me today and for all your lovely comments. I'll be round to visit you all later!

Stunning card Lorraine, the soft colours are gorgeous. Love the embossed background. You mentioned it was a 'daisy & swirls' folder - can I ask who makes it. Thanks.

Oh my... I love this sweet card! Your design and colours is so delicate and soft looking and it simply gorgeous. Lucky you, getting to go to the LOTV shop, I'm so envious! I'd love to go there but I know I wouldn't be able to contain myself... I'd need a big, big bag for my purchases and wouldn't be able to buy another thing for months!
