Guest Designer for The Paper Nest Dolls!

Hello, how are things with you? Good I hope!

I was so thrilled to be asked to the Guest Designer in November for The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge Blog and here is my last card! I just want to say a big thank you to the lovely PND ladies for inviting me and giving me the opportunity to work with such gorgeous images!

So what did I do this time?  Well I chose to use the beautiful Ballgown Avery who is available in rubber so check out the store here

I really had to do the whole 'pretty in pink' thing with his sweet lady as I don’t seem to have done a girly card for ages!

It is quite surprising that my design came out pink at all really and not black as my Grand Calibur decided to leak oil all over my plates and my hands! Grrrrrrr!! Thank goodness I have a Cuttlebug and a Big Shot (I know…. I won’t tell you that I have access to an E-bosser as well; greedy or what)!! J

Dies:  Spellbinders ‘Elegant Labels 4’ - Tattered Lace ‘Kensington’ frame, ‘Midi Blooms’ & ‘Vines’
Paper/Card: Neenah Solar White – Kanban – Centura Pearl
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Markers & Pencils
Others: Pearls – Liquid Pearls – Silky Crush Ribbon

Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful day!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xxx
