HAPPY WORLD CARD MAKING DAY!!!

Welcome on this special day! I hope you enjoy celebrating this wonderful holiday! Here is a card I created today, combining this week`s CPS sketch #135 and the great new "everything but the kitchen sink challenge":



I used tissue paper from my Papertrey Ink mail (the stamps were wrapped into it) to create that flower. All stamps, the button, the ribbon and the babyblue polka dot paper are Papertrey Ink, the brown paper is BoBunny and the paper of my label is Creative Imaginations, the gems are Prima.

I am so excited and honoured to be a featured artist over at caardvarks today, together with some really talented friends! So happy about that!

Happy celebrating everybody and thank you for visiting today!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Happy World Card Making Day Vanessa!! & what a fantastic card you have made for the occasion - great design!

Thank you a million for the Award *MWAH* - I enjoyed reading your secrets - makes me feel like I know you better (we're quite similar - I've never smoked or taken drugs & I've hardly ever drunk alcohol, I have a very sweet tooth & I too am over protective of my children!!) The stalking sounds scary - I'm glad it's in the past sweetie

Big Hugs & thanks again, love Steph xxx

Did you make that flower out of wrap paper? I find it hard to believe, you'll have to prove it with pictures. It looks like you could transform anything into a card embellishment. Really pretty!
