Frame-a-licious fun

Good morning I hope you and yours are well x

This morning I can share my new exciting news with you all - I have been asked to join the fabulous team over at My Mums craft shop challenge blog ! I am so very pleased to join their great DT which is brimming over with creative talent.

So today is the brand new challenge over at the my mums craft shop challenge blog and to kick off my DT term it just so happens to be one of my fav challenges - Pearls & Swirls.

As well as one of my fav' challenges the sponsor is also one of my new fav's - Emerald Fairies who is offering the winner 2 digi stamps.

For my card I have used the gorgeous Isabella which I coloured with a mix of promarkers, copics and prisma pencils and highlighted with Triplus fineliners and glamour dust then die cut with my spellbinders nesties labels 2 available here.
The swirls, which I made a frame out of, are from a sizzix strip die called flowers with flourish stem. I also added a couple of sweet roses and some leaves which were die cut with the Marianne design flowers 2 die.
The gorgeous DP's are from the Echo park For the record paper pad which is available here at my mums craft shop.

I do hope you will hop over to the My Mums craft shop challenge blog and check out all the other DT creations and get all the details of the challenge.

I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

365 cards - Use one of the latest trends (I chose the retro prints so popular at the moment - ah love Cath Kidston)
My craft spot - Girly girl
Ladybug crafts Ink Challenge blog - Spring is in the air
Top tip Tuesday - Mystical, magical & fantasy (My top tip is to try using your die cuts - other than the regular frames - to surround your images they give a beautiful effect - experiment !)

Thanks so much for visiting me today - hope you get time for some crafty fun today x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
