I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Double Challenge Card


This card is for two challenges: -
  1. Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #7 - Pink, Green & Brown
  2. Cupcake Craft Challenge #40 - sketch
The sketch is made by my fellow DT member and blog buddie Donna and I must say it's a wonderful sketch to use.  The layout just brings everything together nicely.

I loved the papers so much I decided to paper piece her dress to match and also to decorate inside the card!

Image: Gorguss Girl from Sugar Nellie
Papers: Funky Word books CD from Funky Hand
Medium: Promarkers
Martha Stewart Embossing punch for borders
Flowers, gems and ribbon from my stash
