Kraft-tastic challenge

TGIF, and a rainy one at that.  This week our bellariffic challenge was to use Kraft  on your project. It was one of those weeks, where I didn't get a chance to do much in the line of carding, so last night I finally manged to get my card done.  I used this image with birthday's in mind.  I'm show casing Funky Plants hanging block image today. This stamp is also on sale!

I stamped the flowers on bella's bestest paper and the coloured it up using copics.  After cutting out the image and sponged some distress dried marigold around the edges. Designer paper is a piece from my scrap bin called Sassafraslass.  

I also used a new Spellbinder die for the triangle decorative piece on the lower left side.  This die set is called Gold Elements One.  I just love the intricate swirls to this die set.  I used Kraft for my card base as well as the scallop layer behind the image.

Finished off with a beautiful silk bow and some glitter on the flowers.

Next week our challenge is back to a sketch. If you get a chance to play along, you can email it to  Emily by thursday night.  Again by doing so you have a chance to win $20 in bella bucks.

I want to wish everyone a very Happy Mother's Day on Sunday!

Thanks for stopping by, see you again real soon.

I always loved this particular stamp! One of these days I'm going on a Bella shopping trip just for some of their flower images. So cute! Your card is gorgeous in the pink with the pretty corner die and big fluffy bow!
