CES DT Card & Challenges!


Hello everyone, sorry its been so long. Had no time for crafting and I dont even have a reason. Thats families for you aye!!
Today we see a new challenge over at the CES Challenge blog and I was raring to go. 
Love using layers and of course lots of pretty flowers.
This weeks theme is
LOTS OF LAYERS (at least 3 please)

I had so much fun making this card up. The stamp is the adorable "Lovin Turtle" from Whimsy Stamps and has been coloured with Copics. The papers are Basic Grey - Kissing Booth and have used Yellow Bazzill and a Doily from Crafty Emma's Store but I dont think she stocks them anymore but there is lots of yummy papers on pre-order with 20% off so go take a look.
Also used an array of beautiful Dies, lots of Stickles and a piece of ribbon.

As you can see below I have decorated the inside using the same papers and flowers.


So check out what gorgeous creations the rest of my teamies have made.
The kids are now on half term and I'm determined to make a few cards.
