October Card Chain Challenge

I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve blogged! Hopefully next month, I’ll be back in full swing again.



Through Deborah’s wonderful Card Chain Challenge, I received this fantastic card from Janet in the U.S. Janet has been having fun with her Silhouette and I love the design and colours she came up with. The layered flower is so beautiful and the all over shimmer on the card is just amazing. Because of the grey skies we’ve been having here recently, I just haven’t been able to catch the shimmer in a photo, but it is absolutely gorgeous! Clicking on the photo twice to enlarge it will give you more of an idea of the shimmer but Janet's photo here captured it much better than I did. Thanks again Janet, I love it!

This is the card I sent to Dwita in Indonesia.


Stamps (Hero Arts) - Fabulous Flourish & Tree, Birds and Messages.

On the background I embossed the Fabulous Flourish in white, applied distress inks (broken china & faded jeans) and spritzed with water. The sentiment was done in the same way. I added a sprinkling of pearls and a gorgeous flower from a set that Kelly had sent me a while ago with a CCC card – thanks again Kelly!
