Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest, Melissa and the DT have made :-)

I used a gorgeous Floral Notes Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Die Set  and made a couple of cards. I think this set will be perfect for decorating notebooks too so that will be my next project ;-)


I coloured the flowers with Copic Markers, die cut it out and popped it onto a Stitched Rectancle Die Cut mat, layered with my fave Cornflower Card Stock and used an embossing folder to add some background texture, I used a chevron design, but any will do ;-) 


For my next card I used different colours and splattered with Tumbled Glass Distress Stain. This was the first card I made and had completely forgot about the theme, I didn't think the slight splattering of aqua was 'blue enough' so made the one above afterwards ;-) 


I fiinished the insides but didn't add a sentiment.





So now it's YOUR turn!
