A new challenge at Diva's by Design.

Good morning blogger friends.

I hope you are all well. Are you enjoying the football? - (good excuse to get some crafty time in)

Today see the start of a new challenge at Diva's by Design.  We are being sponsored this week by Hobbycutz - a fabulous shop for your crafty needs and the theme is 3 or more layers. It would be lovely if you could join in this challenge.

A full product list with a link to the online stores is at the bottom of this post.

I have used Magnolia's  Tilda with Fantasy Flowers and coloured her with Distress Markers.

I really don't know what goes wrong when photographing Lilacs, they always seem to turn out more grey. 

I have been buying quite a few flowers from WOC this week as they have 10% off at the moment - well it would be rude not too when they have been kind enough to give us a discount!!!

The butterfly die is by Joanna Sheen and I have layered it with contrasting papers. I love these stars also which have been made with Air dry clay and a Martha Steward mould.

The flowers are all from LLC and WOC.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Add Flowers
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Favourite Embellishment (Flowers)
Ruby's Rainbow - Flora and Fauna
Papertake Weekly - Lace and Pearls
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - Flowers
Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes/Summer fun
Crafting from the Heart - Anything goes
Craft you Passion - 3 or more embellishments
Crafty Bloggers Network - Bingo (Die cuts, image, patterned paper)

Have a lovely day and I will see you for a catch up very soo)n.

Hugs Sharon. xxx

Gracious, what a work of art you've created with this cute Tilda. All the dimension with the beautiful flowers, the star molds and the gorgeous butterflies. Especially loving those metallic touches in the corners too. This is just gorgeous, and your coloring & the combination of all the decorations have made this one fabulous card. TFS & Hugs

Donna Ellis said...

Hi, Sharon! I am so happy to be visiting your blog and seeing the pretties. I am always smitten by your coloring and the beautiful floral arrangements! So sweet and happy - and this once is beautiful in the lavender colors.

Catching up, your quilted cards, and gorgeous wedding card are amazing. I'm so happy that you have booked a commission, I can certainly see why. I imagine that was fun. Your darling bear cards each look so unique done in the different colors - truly keepsakes.

Hopefully, I can keep up a little better, but in the meantime, thank you for the pretty artwork shares, and your kind comments. hugs, de

Another fantastic card from you Sharon, you really have this style cracked, everything is perfect together. Love your distress ink colouring too, I'm still trying to find time to practice mine since I went for a lesson!
You asked me about a die I'd used to make a shaped card a while back (I didn't forget just not time to blog or create lately) It was a grand nestie big scalloped circles
Hope you are keeping well, I'm going to try harder re the blogging!!
Hugs Laurie xx
