Scrap Pile Challenge No6 and its Spring at Last

It's week 6 at the Scrap Pile Challenge. I found this challenge thankfully when it first started, the very talented Maria, challenges you every week to use up bits and pieces from your Scrap Pile, how simple is that? and how useful too. This week the challenge is to make a paper bow flower. You can also follow her tutorial here.

So here is my card using one of these handmade paper bow flowers. Very simple to make, and effective dont you think? i have embossed the papers strips with the script embossing folder, its one of my favourites at the moment, as you may have noticed.
Have coloured my image with my pro-markers and copic sketchers, and used distress inks for the background and leaft stamp.


Blogging friends are simply the best. I have received these awards recently from some of my blogging friends. The first blogging award was given to me by the lovely talented Claire. Thank you so much hunny.
The following two awards were by the ever talented Sarah Wright. If you havn't seen Sarahs work you should do, she is very talented and like Claire and so many others totally inspirational.

Thank you so much ladies for thinking of me, lots of hugs xxxxx
