Happy Birthday ...

Time for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers
and this weeks challenge has been chosen by
the lovely Jen and it is titled 'Underwater'
and I couldn't resist digging out mermaid Tilda!
This is a scheduled post so I do hope Mr Blogger
is being good in my absence?

I have made this style of card before but this time I have decoupaged Tilda
for more depth this time round,
behind a dome of acetate, covered with glossy accents
I think she looks great.
I have also used seam binding, charm, string, flowers, pearls,
shell, sentiment, & netting.
Papers & cardstock.

Our challenge sponsor is
Michele R Designs
and up for grabs are 3 digi paper packs!

Please come and join us for this challenge
and I hope you have been inspired once again by the 
fabulous DT.

Take care, happy crafting x

Celebrate ...

Thought I would share a card I made using the gorgeous free stamps from 
Papercraft Essentials magazine (issue 82) by Wee Suzi aren't they just delightful.
I have really layered this card up and plenty more hand stitching too.
I purchased the mushroom border sometime ago
and I thought it would go perfectly with this little fairy.

I have used plenty of goodies for this one, so here goes -
Corner die, tag, flowers, ribbon, Kraft & finally the papers
are a combo of  Tulip Linen & Raspberry Road papers free
from Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine a while back.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenge -
LEJ Designs - Anything Goes (I won Star crafter)!

Thanks for visiting my blog today, happy crafting x
