.... I've made a card for this week's challenge over at My Time to Craft. The want us to make a card and use a flourish - or two!! Who could resist such a lovely challenge? Not me!!
I cut out the largest Labels 10 shape and stamped this wonderful Kanban flourish tree in Versamark and then clear embossed. I used my brayer to colour the background - I should have stamped onto some glossy card, as the effect is much better, but I don't have large sheets of glossy card!! I found a lovely flourish in my stamp boxes and inked with versamark and added three shades of pink and lilac - so very pretty. Finally I made a lovely greeting - I think this is a thank you card and it will go into my stash for when I need it!!
Stamps: Kanban - Spring Silhouettes; Waltzingmouse - Fancy Phrases; Flourish from a QVC set
Inks: Big 'n' Juicy - Happy Birthday; Distress - Victorian Velvet; Versamark

Now you can see why I'm in such a cheerful and happy mood - who could fail to cheer up when faced with a card as bright and cheerful as this one?
Oh yes, it could also be because we are finally going to get a decent internet connection speed in our village! British Telecom is rolling out its high-speed BT Infinity service and amazingly we have got it here in North Wales!! Gosh, pick me up!! Anyway, we signed up today and it will be installed in two weeks. So I should be able to get around blogland so much quicker soon!! I'm delighted :)
