Wow, another week has rushed by although I have only been in work for 2 days so can’t complain! I’m here with my card for Totally Gorjuss and this week our theme is ‘Anything Goes with Sparkle’ … sounds easy, right? Not so much for me as I don’t often add a lot of sparkly stuff to my cards, so here goes…
As usual, the stitching was done by hand and I stuck all the gems down one by one (very carefully!) then I added just a little extra sparkle to the flower centres with some Crystal Stickles.

Wow, it has been ages since I was on here due to a serious loss of mojo 😦 I have just not been happy with anything much I have made recently and have been taking a bit of a break. However, I was asked to make a wedding card for a colleague and was able to turn to one of my favourite and most used digi stamps from The Greeting Farm, which I have coloured with ProMarkers.
Sorry that the photo seems a little fuzzy; the light hasn’t exactly been great recently, but here is a close up;

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;
I made this dinky little card (only 9 x 11.5cm) for the Truly Scrumptious challenge of ‘pretty in pink.’
I sewed a line of running stitch down one side of lengths of grosgrain ribbon and seam binding and pulled them tight to create the ‘flower’ layers then added a pearl brad in the centre and mounted it on a scalloped circle. The swirls of gems were created from hand with individual gems and yes, it took quite a while to do!
