I have a card to share which I made for the Stamping bella Bellarific Friday challenge, which this week is to make a one layer card.
I made a 5x5 card using Lulu loves poppies,coloured with Promarkers.  you can find the image here. The sentiment came from Balloonabella.
I added some small black buttons to finish. 


New Home

I have a new home card to share today, not something i make many of.
I used a new LOTV image called A New Adventure, which was a prize.
I used Anna Marie Designs Blissful cocoa papers, die cut a doily, added lace, pearls and a tag with twine. I coloured my image with promarkers.


Sending Hugs

Im back to share another Altenew card using my new spray inks.
Yes, this looks like the Mothers Day card i made last week only this is in more citrus tones so it is a bit brighter.
I sprayed orange and yellow onto my background and splattered with water. Once dry, i stamped my sentiment in gold and added the embossed strip down the side. I stamped the Beautiful day flower and leaves, the flower with yellow, orange and red layers, then cut and added to my card. I added a few sequins too.

Let me know what you think below.
