Tuesday 24 July 2012


Good morning, I hope everyone is well and enjoying the new week. We have a new challenge for you at Bearly Mine Designs and this week the theme is - Shapes - we would like you to make a shaped card.

This is the card I have made using gorgeous papers from the Bearly Mine Designs Simply Dots and Spring Delights sets.

This is quite a different card for me, I rarely make a card without an image but I got this idea from Mandy's Blog - A LITTLE SPACE OF MY OWN - go and check out her work, she has some stunning projects on her blog.

I made the flower by printing some of the flower embellishments from my Crafter's Companion Strawberry Kisses CD on to the back of my Bearly Mine paper and then cutting them out, the border across the middle is a Martha Stewart punch and the little butterfly was a gift from Tracy at Dies to Die For - she always puts lots of lovely die cuts in with your order.

Card Recipe:

Tools:  Martha Stewart edge punch, Marianne CreaTables LR0164
Embellishments:  Crafter's Companion Strawberry Kisses CD,
 gems from stash and the butterfly was a gift from Dies to Die For
Sentiment:  Joanna Sheen's Words Three

We are sponsored this week by our very own Dona and the winner will be able to choose 2 digi sets from Bearly Mine Designs.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

ABC Challenge - T for Two (two design papers)
