Hi and Good Morning, Alison here again today and I am so chuffed to be able to announce our 'Top 3 in the Spotlight' this week chosen by the DT. We had some gorgeous entries, and lots to choose from, so it was quite a tough choice, but this week we loved seeing in order of entry
Well done ladies, it was a pleasure to see your creations! :) Please contact us
for your Weekly Spotlight Badge for display on your blog.
Now for my card inspired by our new challenge theme this week of 'Roses'.
I love adding hand-made flowers to my creations - you can make them match perfectly to your chosen project colours, and they are also delightfully satisfying to make.
Sandy has done a brilliant tutorial on making Roses from Cheery Lynn Dies HERE and after selecting my shimmery and pearly papers, I cut out 3 layers of each size of the Large Rose, Medium Rose and Miniature Rose and embossed and inked the edges.
I made 3 different size blooms from the same 3 size dies including the rose-buds and they are secured with tiny brads and a blob of Viva Decor Pearl Pen on top.
I hand-stitched my papers and layered 2 borders cut with the Lace Light Deco Border. I added the Victorian Romance Corner Flourish to anchor my roses and leaves, added pearl pins, ribbon and a hand-written tag.
All dies used on this card are:
Dont forget we have a great prize on offer again this week, and also the chance to win a BIG SHOT Die Cut Machine! Each challenge entry during the month of June will get their name added into a draw, and while you may only enter the weekly challenge once you can enter all four challenges during the month of June for a better shot at winning. The winner will be announced on July 2nd.
I hope everyone has a smashing week and thanks so much for visiting today.
