This week, I am mostly using.....

.... scalloped card blanks! I made 3 cards yesterday all using my new scalloped blanks and I freely admit it - I love 'em! I was also able to make good use of all of my new craft stash, and purposefully used my new birthday presents and Newbury purchases!

This is the first card I made using my lovely new stash and I used this weeks fab sketch over at Sketch Saturday. Don't you just LOVE the gorgeous Dahlia?! I totally adore her.... swoon! I've been reading some tutorials lately on how to colour hair with Copics and I think this effort is a marked improvement on my previous attempts - well, I'm pleased with it anyway :o) .

Goodie List........
Stamps:
'Dahlia' - TGF from Dies to Die For, sentiment - Whiff of Joy.
Paper: Basic Grey 'Perhaps' from Dies to Die For.
Ink & Colour: Memento, Copic markers, Inkssentials white pen & Spica pen.
Embellishments: Prima flowers and Dew Drops.


Thanks for visiting me today! I hope to leap over to your blogs for a nosey tomorrow :o)
