Fan-tastic !

I was very pleased to be asked to be guest designer this week at quirky crafts for this card here.

The challenge over at quirky crafts this week is to use ribbon and handmade flowers. I used an image from paper pretties (who is also their sponsor this week) she is called Fan-tastic and is available here. I have coloured her with my pro-markers and cut the image with a nestie layered onto another nestie :)

I didn't have a card base in the colour I wanted so I used my pro-markers to colour around the edge before adding my DP which is from a DCWV mat stack I also stitched on some pretty checked DP to the centre of my card.

I made a triple bow in cream satin ribbon to add at the top of my image and a pretty flower made using some x-cut flowers with the help of a fab tutorial over at Clares creations.

Here's a close-up of my flower
I would like to add my card to the following challenges;

Crafty calendar - Flowers in bloom - with optional swirls & flourishes
