Hello bloggers,



I am back again with another card... I am just so happy to be blogging away. It takes me to a whole new world which is almost like fairy tale, you know!!!



Materials used:

Base card stock - light blue

Striped paper - it is actually gift wrap

Scroll stamp - from Hero Arts

Metallic flowers - from my stash

Silver ribbon - from my stash


By the way, this is the first time I have stamped on already printed paper. I have learned this from blog land and videos on You Tube - apologies that I cannot remember the name exact source.



I am going to enter this for the following challenges:


Apart from the challenges above,  I am going to submit this card for the weekend linky party at www.naturallymecreations.blogspot.com/




Hugs and TGIF,


Monica

Gorgeous card -love the glittery goodness! You would probably like using Twinkling H2O's. I just made an Thank You card using a Graphics Fairy image and my twinks. The pics are on my new HD video camera. I still have to figure out how to retrieve them, then actually write the post! Pop over after the weekend and I will probably have it up. :)

Hello Monica - what a beautiful card. I love the swirls against that beautiful background. It just lifts me away. I love the ribbon weaving at the bottom, it is perfect and the little lovely flowers are so delicate. You really make great cards. I love the wrapping paper and matching card below - such a clever idea and so very pretty my dear.
