Zodiac Virgo!

Hello there! Hugs to everyone!! 

Hope you are not too sick of me as this is my 4th post this week!! I know!! But today I am showcasing on THE PAPER NEST DOLLS CHALLENGE BLOG so you’ll have to put up with it!! J

OK now I have 2 female birthdays coming up in August (get me being that forward thinking) so I decided to use the gorgeous ZODIAC VIRGO for my card today!

I went a bit ‘off-piste’ (not swearing) with my colour combo today mixing my greens a bit.  This was because I had chosen my paper but also wanted to use a bow that I have had in my ribbon drawer since the Age of Aquarius (sticking with the whole Zodiac theme here)J!!!

Virgo Symbol: Silhouette Store
Dies: Spellbinders ‘Timeless Rectangles’ – Tattered Lace corners
Punches: X-Cut Small Star
Card: Neenah Solar White - DCWV
Paper: LOTV ‘Beach Bliss’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir markers & pencils
Others: Gems - Ribbon

So don’t be a horo(!)… and scope(!) THE BLOG  to see all the stunning inspiration for the DT and to join in with our CURRENT CHALLENGE which is always Anything Goes! There is a fab prize on offer too from MAY ARTS and visit THE SHOP to see all of Christine’s adorable rubber stamps!!

Thanks so much for looking, and taking the time to comment. I can’t tell you how much it means to me!  Have a wonderful day everybody and I promise that’s it for this week!!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
