Fairy in a Tea Cup.............

Hello again! Because of the time difference between the UK and NZ, there's a new challenge starting tonight over at Southern Girls and this fortnight's theme is 'Embellishment Bingo' and as it was my lovely Mum's birthday on Sunday, I decided to make sure the card I made for her included  '3 in a row' (quite appropriate really cos my mum plays bingo every week LOL!!) My three were the middle row: Die Cuts, Gems and Ribbon. And here's my card (a couple of pics cos it's a triple step card!)

Image - Mo's Digital Pencil coloured with Spectrum Noirs.
Papers - Prima and Pink Coredinations card.
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards.
Flowers and Ribbon - Wild Orchid Crafts.
Dies - Magnolia Doohickey Heart Tag, Whimsy Stamps Vines Flourish.
Other - Baker's Twine and Gems from stash.

I'm also entering my card into the following challenges:
 I've got a real thing about Mo's gorgeous images lately (in case you haven't noticed!) and they just seem to 'fit' what I've been making cards for, like I thought this one would be adorable for my mum - not to mention the fact we're a family of tea drinkers LOL!! Anyways, I hope you like it - I'd love to hear you've been by for a visit, as always.


  1. Your card is wonderful! It's too bad you missed the cut off for entries, but we do hope you'll try again next week when the challenge is "Winter", using an image by Mo, of course. LOL! Looking forward to seeing your creation!

  2. Another beauty Marie, thanks for joining us over at Mo's DP2.
