Two for one.............

Well, I must be on a roll!!!  Either that or I'm dodging doing the VAT returns..........hmmm!

Anyway, I thought I'd join in the fun over at my friend Dippy's (Darnell to everyone else.....) blog djkardkreations where she has a NBUS challenge going on.  NBUS to the uninitiated means Never Before Used Schtuff.  Then I got another email saying she had been asked to be Guest Designer over at CASology collaborating on the same theme.

 Hence the two for one in the post heading.  Anyway come and have a look at my creation:

This card was pretty straight forward and I've used Sue Wilson's Striplet die - Floral Meadow, using the outside edge die to make a frame.  I sponged some colour through the striplet die to give some colour to the flowers.  This was then mounted onto some mats but put some glitter card behind the striplet.  The sentiment frame is Sue's French Collection - corner, border & tag set and the bow is Finishing Touches - filigree 3D itty bitty bows.  The embossed section of card is Creative Expressions Eternal embossing folder - isn't it pretty?  I then just added some pearls to the centre of the flowers.  Everything is new apart from the bow and tag dies.

Thanks for popping by - don't forget to jog on over to Darnell's blog and take a look at the CASology challenge as well.

Happy crafting.
