Blooms and pearls at Creative Inspirations

Good morning all! I hope you are well and happy! I'm feeling happier today - my swimming lesson was good and I even swam with my face in the water something I never thought possible - I'm taking the rest of January to practice on my own before I have another lesson. So there'll be no crafting getting done at the swimming pool on Saurdays now!!!

This week's challenge  at Creative Inspirations is Blooms & PearlsThis week your creations should include both Flowers & Pearls.

This week's prize is from MY MUMS CRAFT SHOP and is a £10 GIFT CERTIFICATE!


I chose to use a flower image from an LOTV sketch pad and coloured it with speccies before making up the card using some papers from kanban.



The die that I used to cut out this image is a spellbinders die. 

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

LEJ January Challengelejdesignschallengeblog - AG
CYPCcraftyourpassionchallenge: Fancy borders/edges
PIOpileitonchallenge: Just because

Thanks for dropping by today - I hope you'll drop by tomorrow too - I've got a lovely box to show you! Big Hugs! Rachel xx
