A Gem of a Challenge - flowers

Time for our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge - this fortnight our theme is 'flowers' which is really easy... but for some reason I couldn't seem to add any to my card, it just wasn't working for me on this one! Luckily there are flowers on the image and papers, and I've added a little flower button too.



Items Used
Scalloped card blank - Craftwork Cards
Pre-coloured digi stamp - Tweet Bird - Pink Gem Designs
Papers & flower button - Papermania
Corner die - MFT Dienamics
Memory Box Vintage Birdcage die - MCH
Pink twine from my stash

So a very simple one from me today, as I was a bit time challenged!  The pre-coloured images from Pink Gem Designs are so handy when you need to make a card quickly, or when you're just not in the mood for colouring - and you get the line version as well, so you can also choose to colour them yourself.

**Edited - I've just remembered I meant to enter this for the 'pink plus one' challenge at In The Pink (I've used pink & brown/ kraft)**

Oh, and as you'll already know if you're my Facebook friend (feel free to add me by the way!), hubby finally caved in and said we could have the kitten :o)  We should be getting him/ her in the next few days, and I can't wait!

Here's a photo my mum sent me of our new little furry baby...


What a naughty little face eh?!  This one's going to be trouble lol :o)

Hope you all have a lovely evening!

gorgeous card and that fur baby is just adorable!!! xx

Kat said...

Gorgeous card Lisa. Love the sweet image and the lovely DP.

That kitten is soooo cute. Our last cat was a fluffy ginger one and he was lovely. He had such a sweet nature but he was an outside cat which is not ideal if you're as fluffy as he was. Catriona would love a cat but her husband doesn't like cats and she has 2 Labradors. The older Labrador hates cats!!

Have a great weekend.
