Embellish it

 Good morning, hope your week is going well so far. Yesterday we had some lovely warm sunshine here and I found some time to sit in the garden and finish my library book- bliss! I managed half an hour before I gave in and played ball with one determined puppy! He's brilliant at 'fetch' not quite as good with 'drop' but we're getting there.

Today's card is this week's challenge at Fab'n' Funky, hosted by N-Eva- her chosen theme is 

Embellish It

I used a lovely digital image from  Mo Manning, Alisa with Roses, which I've coloured with Copic Markers. I cut out the image with a stitched circle die and layered it onto a larger circular die cut with tiny punched holes which I've threaded with ribbon. The papers are from a  Craft Sensation pad I bought in the Range, a real bargain, great quality paper and  I just love the colours! I've embellished it with die cuts (Memory Box) and some tiny pearls.

There's more to see over at Fab'n' Funky - so please do hop on over and take a look- hopefully you'll be inspired to play along this week.

Thanks for stopping by

enjoy your day

Hi, Chris! Your Mo Manning creation could not possibly be any sweeter or more beautiful. Her characters are so recognizable, and I immediately identified with the amiable sweetness factor. The playful background papers distressed in white tones are especially endearing. BEAUTIFUL CARD, my friend! hugs, de
