Roses are Red

I made this easle style card for an order, the brief I was given was "she likes flowers" Well I hope she likes this floral card!
I am entering this into the Stamptacular Sunday challenge where the theme is Whatever!

I made the rose design papers myself in PSP  and the darker DP is from a papermania set. The stamp is also Papermania that I have coloure with Promarkers and added glitter. I chalked the background. The paper roses were hand pinched and shaped then glittered  I also made a matching box.
the back of the card shows a tag for writing any messages

Sketch Saturday - Cute Little Sprout

The digi is called Sprout from Mo Manning and was part of the bundle I bought as part of the fundraiser  Help Katie
She is such a cute one.

I have coloured her with Promarkers and (don't laugh) had a go at a colured back ground in the pointelism style. I know it isn't good enough and will really have to practice this technique to get it looking right but I didn't want to overload with any more dots as I didn't know if it would make it any better and I had been dotting for about half an hour ! lol

I have decided to follow the Sketch by Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog

Papers are K&Co Sparkly Sweet
Flowers are punched and shaped from the DP
Ribbon, Gems and Lace from stash

She is fighting this awfull disease with a gorgeous smile on her face, what a star she is. You can visit Katies blog HERE

Another Fairy Doodlers Friday Freeby Challenge

Here is the my card for the challenge over at  Fairy Doodlers Friday Freeby Challenge
Coloured with Promarkers
Design Papers are Dovecraft Funky Vintage


Together ............

Cute Card Thursday have the theme "Out With The Old" as this weeks challenge, they want to see you using some of your old stash  
I snagged this image a while ago from Arthurs Clip Art site and loved it.
I have coloured the image with my Promarkers and added Aqua glitter to the rain and puddles

The hearts were cut on my Bug with the Hearts and Stamps Die that I have had for ages and ages so this could be my OLD stash. I wasn't sure about using yellow for hearts but it kinda works? anyway I jazzed them up with a lickety spit of glitter.

The Design Paper is called Retro something or other (oops forgot and don't have packaging)

I designed the word art on my lap top 

The ribbon is some old stash too

Although this card is kinda romantic I didn't want it too fussy  or girly as i'm gonna give it him indoors 
Hope he doesn't mind the glitter ;0)
