Creative Inspirations - Challenge 12 - Four different papers on your card

Hello y'all, sorry I haven't been around much, I don't know where my time goes, I have had a few orders to make but I don't seem to get a lot of time to craft at the moment, mainly weekends and that is it. However, all of that will change in 3 weeks time when I get a week off work and the house all to myself. My nieces Shannon and Georgia are coming to stay with me for the weekend and Shannon has said she would like to try crafting and so I plan a day of card making for us all, I can't wait, I will have to show you what they make.

And now onto the Creative Inspirations Challenge for this week. The theme this week is:-


Now it doesn't matter whether the papers are patterned, embossed or if you do like I did and have 2 of them in the form of paper flowers! As long as we can clearly see that there are 4 different types it is acceptable! :)

The prize this week is a gorgeous selection of ribbons from our sponsor CRAFTY RIBBONS.

I recommend you check out their site as their ribbons truly are gorgeous!

I can't wait to see what you all come up with this week, I shall be hopping around your blogs and leaving little messages. Good luck to you all.

For my card I used one of my new Anya stamp from The Greetings Farm. It is called "Dahlia", isn't she delightful? I coloured her with Promarkers and used some glossy accents on the flower in her hair. I also used some Sakura Stardust pens to highlight certain parts of her clothes but it doesn't show in the picture. I mounted the picture onto some shapes cut out with my lovely nestabilities, I don't know what I would do without these, they are such a must have. The flowers I punched out and the brads are by Making Memories. The papers I used are all by Cherry Arte. I used both sides of the paper called "Princess Heather", another is called "Princess Corinne" and the last is called "Princess Sheri".

So that's it from me this evening, I hope to have more to show you very soon.

Hope you like the card and good luck to you if you join in with the challenge this week.
