Fun Folds

Well everybody here is my take on the Spring Flowers:

I have a green house and grow loads of different Fuchsias every year and give away for presents to my friends.  They are such a lovely flower en so beautiful all the nice colours you can get and is so easy to grow!

My base card is made out of Black card stock and I made it into a A5 size card
I used a Spellbinder Grand Ovals and used a Soft Pink Pearl Card Stock 
I just wanted a frame for my Image 
After I completed my image I frame it with it.

I used a lovely stamp called Hanging Fuchsia from SweetStamps.com
I used Versamark and embossed my image with Pearl Embossing Powder
I used Cosmic Powder pigments to paint my image
 I used, Red Pearl, Blue Pearl and Green Pearl.
I made a bow with Pink and Black ribbon and String and added
a center piece I made
Last but not least I added 3 Black Gems to each of the 4 corners

Links to all the lovely products are below. You can stock up on some 
needed supplies from the

  1. Denise, so glad the sun is out for you today! It's bitter cold here {unusually cold for North Carolina} but it is quite gloomy, a far change from our sunshine skies and 70 degrees on Sunday! Anyway….your lovely card leads me to believe that spring cannot be too far off! This is a spectacular stamp…I've never seen this one. Thank you for the inspiration today!

  2. This is just so beautiful and the bow with the broach is a lovely touch.
