This is my card for this months challenge at the Crafting Cafe. 
Our Sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and this is one of their images.

I have die cut several layers using Spellbinders Grande Nestabilities square frames. Used ribbon and large flower in black and white too.

I then thought I would colour the image using a Wink of Stella glitter pens so that it really stood out from the black and white. I have also decoupaged it to help it stand out too.

I hope you like it and pop back soon to see what else is going on.

Cat in a Hat

This will be my last card for the Graph'It Markers challenge blog. I need to give things a bit of a rest, to much going on and I can't keep up.

This image is called Flower Hat and is from our sponsor SamiStamps.

Our theme is Ribbons and Lace and I have added a fare bit of both, I have even cut up the lace and used it like leaves.

The cat has of cause been coloured with Graph'It Markers. Just some pearls and a nice round sentiment to finish it off.

Our sponsors this time are Sweetpea Stamps and this is one of their cute images called

I have coloured this movely little Unicorn with my Graph'it Markers. The layers have had the corners decorated using corner punches. I have used a lovely piece of velvet centred ribbon across the top.

Box of Poppies

I just thought i would share a card that I made a while back, it was inspired by a card I had seen and I really wanted to myself. It was for a friends birthday who loves Poppies.

It has been coloured with Copic pens and layered up with lovely die cut frames. With a lovely bow.

Then a box with matching design tags. Thanks to the designer for this inspiration, It was great.

Girl on a Hill

It's time for a new challenge over at Graph'it Markers and his is my card using an image from our sponsors called Little Friends.

She has of coarse been coloured with Graph'it markers.

The corners on the layers round the image have been done using punches. The border has been cut using a Cheery Lyn die and the flower and leaves are also from punches. I think it looks like a bright spring day, with luck spring is not far away.
