Guest Designer at Marianne's Design Divas


I was amazed and thrilled  to receive an email recently asking me to be a guest designer at Marianne's Design Divas. I thought I would make a Birthday card for a change as I need to build up my stock ready for next year's craft fairs. I love making card using various dies and all the dies are Marianne Designs. I used 2 squares from a set I won from Shirley, my favourite parasol, mini butterfly with comes with the topiary tree and 2 flower dies. I love the embossing on these diecuts and used sanded Core'dinations with them. The paper was also in my candy win, sentiment, finding and pearls are from stash.
