Start Spreading the News

Morning Peeps,

How are we all diddling, it's half way through the week, yayyyyyyyy. Gosh isn't it terrible wishing my life away. In my next life I'm going to be rich so I can stay at home and play all the time, lol, if only!

I have used one of my darling Magnolia images for this card and one of my favourtie colour schemes, pink and grey. I have also tried my hand at colouring her with copics to create the distressed look.

Posted by Picasa

Materials Used:-

Tim Holtz Shabby Chic Paper & Magnolia Paper
3 sizes of EK Success Flower punch to create the handmade flowers
Martha Stewart Branch Punch
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Lace, Ric Rac & Mesh from Stash
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards

Scrappy Frogs - Make Your Own Flowers
Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
All Sorts - 3 Punches at least (I used 5)
