CES DT Card & Challenges...























**This is my second post today, please scroll done to see my altered notebook**



Another saturday challenge for you and this week over at the CES Challenge Blog we have the lovely theme of "Flowers and Flutterbys". The rest of the DT have made the most beautiful cards and here is mine. I have used a gorgeous stamp from Belles & Whistles, (sorry don't know what she's called), masked her then stamped over with Kadoodles "My Flower Garden". Coloured with Inkadinks, Distress Ink refills & Copic Markers adding Stickles to the flowers and grass. Papers are Prima Jack & Jill. Sentiment, Wild Rose Studio & Prima Pearls. All available from Crafty Emma's Store.  Have used X Cut & MS Punches and the added Butterfly is a Marianne Die. This is purple and green but the paper colours are not quite true in the piccie. Its so much prettier IRL.
Would be great if you could join in with us this week. We love looking at your creations and have to say there are so many of them. Although we cant get to you all, we appreciate you taking the time to participate in the CES Challenge.
