Louisa and a fancy fold.....

Hi Susan here....

Today we are starting a new challenge over at The Stamping Bazaar and the theme is 'Spots and Stripes'....another super easy challenge to enter with the wonderful images designed by our very own Marina Neira. For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous inspiration from our design team call across to The Stamping Bazaar Challenge Blog and join in the fun with us!!!

We recently had a card sent to us from a blogging friend - Kylie Kueter. This fabulous lady inspired me with her beautiful card and I decided to slightly copy the design and bring it to you today.
My backing papers are on a CD from Carol Ann's Studio, beautiful. I chose to use my favourite colour, as I would - you all know how much I love PINK!

The borders and back panel were punched using a Multi Shaper allDeco Punch. My base card is from The Paper Mill Shop. My ribbon and pearls are from our local market. The flowers are from Hobby Craft.

'Louisa the Lioness' is available from The Stamping Bazaar Store, and is just one of the many wonderful images that Marina Neira has designed. Don't miss out on some very special offers at the moment in the Store, you won't want to miss these!! I used Promarkers to colour the image and then gently inked the background, the corners have been punched using a corner punch from Create and Craft.
