St Lukes Charity Card Challenge...April and

Thank you to all of you that have joined in with us over the last year. We have seen our little challenge grow and grow and we have seen some fantastic cards entered. Here`s to the next 12 months!

a Ladybug Crafts Ink Magnum cling stamp
4 packs of seed beads
a bunch of gold pearl sprays
a bunch of iridescent flower sprays
a bunch of gold leaf sprays
and a perfect Bow Maker MkII
And here`s my card,
 Not the best piccy I`m afraid, after all the glorious sunshine of the past week we have cloud here in Hull, typical.
I started with a 6x6 card base and used a MS Doily punch along the side edges.
The DP is Papermania Blueberry Hill in beige and blue matted onto some pale blue card.
Now I`ve tried using those stick on swirly gem thingies in the past and I get into all sorts of a mess with them so this time I stamped a swirl from Papertreys Fancy Flourishes set in baby blue onto the DP and stuck individual gems on top of that. I`m rather pleased with this effect.
I finished off with some lace and a piece of blue ribbon. The sentiment is a mix of Layers of Color Happy Wishes and Flourishes Tag Lines stamped in Versafine Onyx and cut out with a nestie labels 4 die matted onto another label 4 in pale blue then added a blue bow to top it off.

Before I go I must apologise for my lack of commenting last month. I have looked at all your entries but there has been so much going on here these last few weeks I have simply run out of time. I promise to do better this month. Thank you.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
