Playing with some new stash


Now here's a very different card for my second card today. I had 2 lovely parcels arrive this week, one from Simon Says and one from Wild Orchid. Both were winnings, but I did of course spend a bit more than the vouchers. Well, you have to make the postage costs worthwhile don't you. I was so inspired by the inspiration challenge at Allsorts that I thought I would make a card just using die cuts and flowers. The paper is Papermania  Happy Days. I've used kraft card and DI Vintage photo, Tim Holtz clock die, new MB bird and cage dies from Simon Says, ticket from Craftwork Cards, stamped with Kanban stamps which I found at the Range recently, Woodware punched leaves and flowers from Wild Orchid where the challenge is shabby chic. I ordered the new limited edition Autumn Promarkers today from Joanna Sheen, only £9.99 and free postage, bargain. They look really lovely colours too. I would like to enter this into the challenge of going round in circles at Joanna Sheen.
