Charming I’m sure!
Here I am with another Saturday post for Totally Gorjuss challenge, This week we have a lovely easy challenge for you! the theme is Charmed!
we are sponsored by the lovely Heathers Hobbie Haven.
For my card I decided to have a play with Kraft and some distress inks… First I printed straight onto the Kraft my sentiment, then you know me and my LOVE for distress inks tehhehee…. Then cut some flowers using Sizzix Bigz Die - 3D Fringed Flower which I cut from white scraps and have inked with Mustard seed and Spiced marmalade, the border punch is an EK success lace border also distressed using the same colours, I then used the big bite to punch the holes so I could thread the ribbon and finished with a ribbon and jute bow. the flower centre is a glitter brad and metal spacer.

The Charm I have had in my stash forever and can not remember where or when I got, and I have finished with a little stardust gel pen faux stitching.
Here are the challenges I am playing with this card:
Hotshot Crafts - Die cuts
