A Pocket Full of Posies – One for the Girls!

Welcome to our first Pocket Full of Posies challenge!  Our fabulous sponsors for this week are Wild Orchid Crafts, who are stockists of the most delightful flowers and trims, so don’t forget to pay them a visit – you won’t be disappointed! They are sponsoring our launch with a fabulous prize, and I think you’ll agree that it’s well worth entering a card.

Here is my first Design Team card. The very sweet image is by Lili of the Valley, who make some of my favourite stamp designs at the moment.  I’ve coloured the little scene with Promarkers, and used designer papers from Fancy Pants and K & Co. The cute felt flowers are from Stampin’ Up, and the sentiment stamp is by Woodware.

I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit; don’t forget to drop by to see what the other members of the Design Team have made. I look forward to seeing you all again very soon!

Passion for Promarkers – Poppy and Moss

This week’s challenge at Passion for Promarkers is sponsored by the lovely Joanna Sheen, and she will be giving the lucky winner a voucher for £10 to spend in her online shop.

The theme, chosen by Caryn, is to use the colours Poppy and Moss, with an extra twist in that you are to add something tasty to your card mmm…

I’ve used some gorgeous Whiff of Joy stamps, all from their summer collection, on my card.  The colour recipe is shown below the card.  The papers are by K & Co and Melissa Frances.  The swirls are made with an EK Success punch, and the tiny daisies are punched out with a punch by Woodware. The lacy border punch is by Martha Stewart.
