CES DT Card & Challenges!

Yay, its the weekend and today we see a new challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog.
I'm playing host this week and have chosen a nice easy theme.
Seeing as summer is here or Maybe not quite yet here in the UK
I would like to see "Lots of Sparkly Flowers" on your card/project.
Now I couldn't resist this gorgeous stamp, Love Grows from of course my favourite LOTV. Coloured with Copics and Masses of Sparkling Flowers. I don't think there are many cards I do that haven't been stickled!

Do pop on over to the CES Challenge Blog where my teamies have made the most beautiful cards. and as usual Crafty Emma is giving away a £10 voucher to be spent in her Shop.

You may also like to know that CES have set up a New Blog  "CES INSPIRATION" where we will be keeping you up to date with the latest products and the DT will be posting cards, tutorials etc.
