Hello... ello

Hello there,
I've got another card to share tonight.
I've been in the house today,
as it's been steaming hot,
my pasty duff can't handle that sort of heat,
so yay for me, I've been playing!!
Hopefully, the weather was kinder to you,
my blogging pals, and you were able to have
a lovely weekend.

I've played along with Penny Black Saturday Challenge
as their challenge was to use swirls on our creation.
I lub swirls, so I wanted to join in.
In fact, I had to stop myself from adding more
swirly stuff to the card.
I've used heat embossing on a flourish stamp,
(from the Sketchy Flourishes Inkadinkado clear pack)
I then outlined around the design
with an embossing pen and embossed again,
this time, with glitter.
I've also used a stencil around the image,
"Love Conquers"--Penny Black.
Designer papers are My Minds Eye
Webster's Pages and Anne Griffin.

Over at Simon Says Challenge
they've asked us to paper piece.
This is where the Webster's Pages paper comes in.
I've stamped some flowers from the
Penny Black T for Transparent Wonderful set
onto that paper,
as well as the snails shell.
Everything is peiced over the stamped image,
hedgies got 3 layers of paper on this project,
althouth those are painted layers,
not designer papers.

The snail charm is Jolee's,
the "fibers" are Basic Grey,
as is the sentiment stamp,
and the gems are K and Company.

Hope you enjoy your upcoming week.
Thanks for stopping by,
please feel comfortable leaving a comment,
I appreciate every one of them ;)
