Paper Crafting Journey

The new challenge at Paper Crafting Journey is sponsored by Jellypark and the Jellypark DT were asked if they fancied making a sample. The theme is a picture inspiration (for some reason I can't get it added to this post!) and here is my sample:

I've used the Wedding Cake digi and coloured it with Promarkers plus a smidge of glitter glue. My new X Cut die has been used - I had a bit of a time with the larger size using it to cut the card blank with my rather ancient red Sizzix machine as it wouldn't go through with two card thickness. I managed in the end though!!

The papers are Nana's Nursery - Baby Girl 8x8 stack which I shamefully admit, rediscovered in one of my drawers and its first time I've used it! I bought it in The Range a few years ago in the sale and I can't resist a bargain!

The ribbon and embroidery thread are from my stash. I've added a line of dotted liquid pearls around the edge of the card to finish it off. And the heart charm is from a necklace from the Poundshop!

Head on over to Paper Crafting Journey as you could win two Jellypark digi's!

Oh, and I'd like to say thank you to all the team at Paper Crafting Journey as I have been the random winner for the last two challenges! I've been advised to pick the lottery numbers this week as you just never know!!
