Sweet Stampin' - how charming

Happy Saturday everyone :o)  I'm here with my DT card for Sweet Stampin', where our challenge for this week is 'how charming', so you just need to add a charm... sounds simple, but I hardly ever use them... I've got plenty though!  We're sponsored by Emerald Faeries who are giving our winner 2 digi stamps, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher prize.




This one's for an order - I don't know the customer, it's a friend of a friend of my mum's lol... So I'm hoping the style will be ok for them - I was just asked for something special with the couple's name on the front and 'happy anniversary' inside, so fingers crossed this will pass!  I should have made the chain shorter on the charm, but otherwise I'm fairly happy with this one.

Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Stamp - Together Forever - LOTV
Colouring - promarkers & flexmarkers

Lili's Little Fairies - flower power
Stampin' for the Weekend - feeling floral
DYSU - tags or flags (hope my heart banner is ok!)
Divas By Design - lovely layers

My plan to keep the weekend crafting free isn't working so far lol, got a couple of cards to make today... perhaps I'll be ahead by next weekend!  Hope you all have a lovely day :o)
