I have made this card for the artygirlz challenge.
The challenge this week is to make your own background.
Its been awhile since I made my own backgrounds so now there are so many yummy papers, its quicker to buy them. I have used my favourite colours. Started with pink card Versamark the swirls and washed it with brown chalks. Stamped the pink flowers with chalk pad.

Well done

The theme for the cute card thursday is "Things with wings". I have decided to make a well done card for this challenge as every other word in our house is exams. There are only 2 wks before my oldest daughters exams. So on a positive note I have made a card suitable for someone passing exams.
Just love the pile of books stamp from magnolia stamps as it can be personalised with the subjects the individual has taken. I have topped it with the wise owl again from magnolia.
The background says it all so its a nice quick but very personal card. The white card is a pearlescent card that flips to pink when turned.(It is really hard to pick this up.) I have coloured the image with twinkling h20's for abit more shimmer. Hope you like it.

Thats a stamp in the real rubber and stamped images. I mean how cool would that be to win. Talk about the pot at the end of the rainbow. I am hoping its me but if you want a chance check out her blog and flow the instructions and you never know I might be crying because you won the stamp :o)
