A Helping Hand

Good Morning,
My Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Well the first weekend of July over, before we know it the month will be out.

I hope everyone survived the heat wave, although here in the North West
we did not seem to have it as hot as other regions, ah well maybe next time.

For my blog post today I am wearing my DT hat for Creative Craft Cottage
as its time for another challenge  to begin.  The theme for this fortnight


Our sponsor for this challenge is

Prize - 3 Digi images of winners choice.

I love the Ppinkydolls images as they always seem to have that
expression of innocence.

The image I have chosen is called I HAVE A SECRET  and you can purchase HERE.


1. My card base is 8 x 8 and I have matted it with lilac
card that I have embossed.

2. Using the Art Nouveau Layering die set from Tonic I
cut three mats in pink, lilac and white.

3. The image was printed onto super smooth and coloured
with Copic's. To soften the white edges I used Pan Pastels
in pink and even smudges it across the image.

4. The mats were layered up on the card using foam tape.

5. The pink flourishes are also Tonic dies and the flowers
from my stash.

To complete I made a small pink bow and added lilac
gems to the centre. The gems were also added to the
top and bottom corners.

Should you need a little inspiration, then the ladies in the
design team have created some beautiful cards and we
would love you to come on over and play along.

Hope to see you over there

Until Next Time
As Always
Take Care and Happy Crafting
