Some Exciting News.......


I have some very exciting news to share with you.  Nina has asked me to be a Guest Designer at There is Magic in the Air for the month of April and of course I am very honored.  I do hope that you will come join me in the great challenges that she has lined up for April.


The challenge this week is "Let's Use Flowers" and I have used the Doodle Flower 3 that you can find in the Paper Cupcakes store .   


Here is my card.  Background is linen cardstock; flower image is Paper Cupcakes; coloring is done with Prismacolor pencils and OMS; clear gems around the flower; Spellbinders oval and scalloped oval with a poem that I pulled from the internet and retyped (author unknown); clear flower gems; clear heart gems; EK Success border punch; lace and ribbon from my collection.  TFL
