It`s here...

at last. The brand new monthly charity card challenge in aid of St Lukes Hospice.

I`m sure most of you know already about this fabulous charity card challenge set up by  Craftilicious 
if not, pop over to the St Lukes .
challenge blog and read about the fantastic work that they do and how important this challenge is towards raising funds.

Our very first challenge is called " Say it with flowers" so we want you to make, enter and donate your floral fabulousness.
Here is my very first DT entry,
Strongly influenced by Silke Ledlow 
and her fabulous style in card making, I`ve kept it quite simple but not too CAS.

White card base. Panel made slightly smaller than the base, run through Cuttlebug with Swiss Dots folder, added a ribbon and raised it on foam pads.
The image is a digi by Fred She Said. 
coloured with Promarkers, cut into a rectangle and raised with foam pads. I`ve added a bow to my ribbon.
The sentiment is computer generated.

So there you have it. We can`t wait to see what treasures you come up with for our first month.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
