I'm still making the cards that I need for the next few weeks, and found this gorgeous image in my stash that was waiting to be coloured, and made into a card.

I'm not sure why but I sometimes completely uncontiously seem to produce cards with this type of layout.  It isn't until I finish the card, and sit and look at it that I realise it is similar to cards I have done before.  Still it works for me, and I bet in future there will be others!

I've coloured the image with promarkers, and added glossy accents to the heart on the flower pot.  The circle and scalloped cirle were cut with nesties on my cuttle bug and the boarder at the bottom is a MS punch.  The sparkly organiser ribbon was from my stash, and the packing paper is yet another of the DCWV paper stacks I bought in the States last summer called 'Nanna's Kitchen Stack'.

I'm not sure that you can see but the backing paper is not only bright and colourful, but also sparkly to go with the ribbon.

I'd like to enter this card into the following Challenges:

Creative Belli Blog - animals
Celebrate the Occasion - happy birthday (must use a ribbon)
Creative Craft Challenge - animal antics
Deep Ocean Challenge - use punches and dies
Oldie But A Goodie Challenge - on the farm/in the garden
Promarker Challenge - cut it out


  1. Very pretty - love the sparkly papers and ribbon.

    I'm going to do a tutorial for the gift bag as I've had a few email requests too. Hopefully it should be in the next week or so.
