No Patterned Papers

Good morning, I hope you are all having a lovely Easter weekend wherever you are!  The weather yesterday was lovely and sunny in Blackpool my DH got the grass cut and some much needed tidying up done in the garden! I was busy in the house getting preparations underway for the arrival of my gorgeous grandsons, son and DIL later on today!

We have a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and we want to see your cards without any patterned papers on!  Here is mine:

I have used  a cute acrylic stamp from Ladybug Craft Ink which I won in my mega box of candy from Susan (thank you again)!  She has been coloured with my Copics and I added some Glossy Accents to the glass and Stickles to the bubbles which I don't think you can really see on this picture (and boy is that crooked)!!  I cut her out with Spellbinders Ovals and matted her on Beaded Ovals.  The pretty beads around her are lovely IRL, very iridescent.  I embossed the Centura Pearl and matted it on some Coredinations pink card stock. The letters are cut with foam which I coloured with my Copics to match.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, very satiny just gorgeous!

For some more inspiration please go over to Card Makin' Mamas and see what the rest of the DT have done.  Please remember we are a card making challenge so we want to see your cards! We are sponsored this week by

Well I have scheduled this so hopefully it will come up ok - fingers crossed.  I am now going to schedule my DT posts for next week.  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, I know I will!  Thank you so much for looking, take care xx
