Show Up and Shine!

Hello friends,

A clean and simple card to share today. Some of the ladies of the Double D team challenged each other to do a a card for the Addicted to CAS challenge. The idea is to lift our spirits, get us out of our daily routines and to do some crafting to help us mentally and emotionally. Please visit the ladies and share some love. The ladies who joined this challenge with me are:

Darlene

Birgit

Kathy

Diane

My card features a clear stamp set from Penny Black. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils, stamped a “quirky” sentiment to do justice to the cute little hedgie and his balloon. I added dimension to the card by lifting the panel off the card base with mirror tape. I finished off with glossy accents to the hearts and some pink star gemstones.

Challenges I entered:

The little hedgie hanging on his balloon

Thanks for stopping by. I love reading your thoughts in the comments. Have a wonderful day!

Kind regards,

Amelia
