Add a Charm

Good morning to you. I got back from my trip to London yesterday afternoon, how wonderful to be able to spend some time with my gorgeous little grandsons! Sorry if I have not been around to see you but I will catch up today!  I'd like to welcome my new followers - I'm so pleased to see you here!!  Also a big thank you to Annie for the beautiful stamps she has sent me! Thank you Annie!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Crafty Sentiments:  ADD A CHARM. Here is my card:

I have used the gorgeous Butterfly Girl stamp and she has been coloured with Copics and some Art Institute glitter to her wings.  I cut her out with Grand Nesties Ovals and matted her on Floral Ovals.  The papers are First Edition Isabelle and the pearlescent paper is a stack from Craftwork Cards I have had yonks I don't think they do it anymore!  The butterfly is MB Isabella and Pippi, leaves are Marianne, the birdcage and flower are SB and I have used Cheery Lynn Anastasia Border and Tags 2. The gem brad, ribbon and charm are all from my stash! Sentiment is computer generated.

You don't have to use a Crafty Sentiments stamp/digi image but if you do we love to see them and your entry will be counted three times in the draw if you add a 3 after your name.  The prize this week is:

 from Crafty Sentiments!

Also, don't forget:

we have a mystery prize up for grabs on the Crafty Sentiments Inspiration blog!

Please go over to the Crafty Sentiments Challenge and see what the rest of the fabulous Design Team have done.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Crafty Boots - Celebrations
Digi Darlas - Tag It
Get Inky - Die Cuts
Paper Playtime - Buttons or Brads (I used brad)
Crafty Bloggers - O's and X's (I used diagonal die cuts, stamp, tag)
