Romance Novel Card

I wanted to share this beautiful card with you that was sent in from Wendy Gay.  Wendy always produces the most beautiful, intricate work and this card is no exception.

The card uses papers from the Prima 'Romance Novel' range which Wendy has teamed up with 'Baby Pink Light' Bazzill cardstock.  The ribbon is white 'Faux Silk' which has been coloured with 'Tattered Rose' Distress Ink.  Wendy has distressed all the edges using the Tim Holtz Paper Distressor and has even created a miniature calendar as an embellishment by stamping the Technique Tuesday 'Its a Date' stamp onto shrink plastic.  The other embellishments are Wendy's own.

I am sure you will agree it is a stunning card and many thanks to Wendy for sharing it with us.

We will be having a draw every month so if you are not yet a Follower on the Blog make sure you add your name to be in with a chance of winning in April.

Now I have a little card to share with you.

This is a card I created for my husband's birthday a couple of weeks ago using this fun stamp from Stampendous 'Icing Fluffles'. This image really makes me smile and works perfectly for a man or a woman - very versatile.  Here I have used it in conjunction with the Echo Park 'Little Boy' range of papers and have stamped the image twice, once onto white cardstock and again onto 'Cool Stripe' paper from the range and have paper pieced the cupcake case and 'Fluffles' party hat.  The icing, once coloured, I have gone over with Glossy Accents and added 'Stardust' Glitter Glue to the 'sprinkles'.

To finish I created some bunting and also stamped and created an embellishment using the 'Year Round' stamp by Technique Tuesday to mark the date of my husband's birthday - I love this stamp, it is great for cards and scrapbook layouts.

If you order today, all these products have 20% Off in our Easter Sale but hurry because the Sale ends at midnight tonight.

I hope you have a happy and relaxing end to your Bank Holiday Weekend and a belated 'Happy Easter' to you all!
