Good morning all, hope you're having a good week. I'm off to the dentist shortly for a check up, hopefully all will be fine and I'll only need a scale and polish. Will have to have a quick look around the craft shop whilst I'm up the street - I'm hoping they'll have some of the new Wild Rose Studio stamps and papers in.
Anyway enough of the chat here's one I made last night.

Image is a LOTV die cut mounted onto a Marianne Design doily. Border punch is from Martha Stewart and corner dies are from Spellbinders. Butterfly and flower dies from Marianne Design. Backing papers are from First Edition (large square) and Joanna Sheen's Precious Petals CD (corners and mat). Ribbon, flower and gems from my stash. Sentiment stamped on flower is from Wild Rose Studio.

I'd like to say no tools were harmed in the making of this card but I can't...........I managed to break my new Martha Stewart border punch.... boo hoo....will have to email them and see if they will do anything as it's only two weeks old!

  10. How cute is she,I do like the image and this is lovely card.
    What a pity about your punch, I have one that I love but won't use as it is so fragile that I'm afraid it will break even on paper.
    Thanks for joining us this week.
