Cute Card Thursday #57 GD Card / Lili of the Valley #26


Good morning to you all, here is my first card for you all for today and a lovely surprise for me! I was delighted when Deb asked me to be Guest Designer for CCT for 2 weeks. I didn't even have to think about it and said yes straight away! They have a fabulous DT which is so talented and full of inspiration - make sure you pay them all a visit. Onto this weeks challenge ......

Getting Edgy!

So those that know me will know the feeling of horror I felt as I read this weeks challenge .... but I have managed to rough up my edges and rise to the challenge!!!! You can also do lots of other things to your edges such as sand or sew. I attacked mine with a good old pair of scissors leaving sweet little Daisy wondering what on earth had possessed me, lol.

I have used my Bearly Mine CD again and finished with some flowers and a yummy gold spacer I recently got from The Hobby House . Everything else was from my stash. Coloured with my prismas and sansador - I loved colouring this image, she is one of my faves.



Here we are again for another fab challenge with LOTV and this week we have a sketch to follow created by our very talented Jo!

Dug out my Gorjuss Girls and finally inked up this beauty! Of course I rotated the sketch (naughty me, lol) and swapped the sentiment for a ribbon (really naughty me .... sorry) but you can still make out the sketch ... honest!

Papers are Basic Grey and I have chalked the background - quite like this effect and will be doing more of it in the future that's for sure. I have punched the flowers using a retro flower punch and also a daisy punch, finished with a pearl in the centre.
Please pop by the other DT's blogs to drool over their beautiful creations.
See you again tomorrow with not 1 but 2 cards again!
