Diva By Design Pastels

Its time for Team B to showcase this weeks challenge over at Divas By Design

This week it is Pastels & is sponsored by Crafty Emmas

I made this card using pale pink pearlised card, onto which I Cuttlebugged Swiss Dots folder paper & rounded off the corners & stuck it onto the card. I then used a Doohickey die to add a border acroos the bottom. Onto that I added a pretty pink & white ribbon & bow. The butterfly is also a Doohickey die (Dragonfly with extra body cut off), onto which I added dew drops.Another Doohickey Tag die mounted & the sentiment from a stamp set I have (Elusive Images) I think. The flowers are from my stash & mounted to make a display.
I look forward to seeing all your entries.

Parisian Dreams

This is a card I made before going on holiday using Parisian Tilda which I have coloured with Distress inks. Spiced Marmalade, Walnut Stain & Sage Green.
I Googled a free image of the Eiffel Tower & again coloured with Distress Inks.
The papers I am afraid were in my stash, so no idea whose they are, but lending themselves perfectly to the card.
I added faux stitching to the edges of the papers.
Eiffel Tower charm added onto ribbon which I have attached using Eyelets. Flower from stash & sentiment is an old QVC purchase.

God it has taken me longer to add the challenges than it did to make the card. The internet is so slow here in Cyprus & doesnt help that Blogger seems to have issues too.!

On hols

Just to say I am away for a month now & whilst I do have internet access, it is very slow & frustrating, so whilst I am trying to keep up with my DT commenting (not that well this morning as blogger is alsoo messing me about), please forgive me if I do not get to comment on my fav blogs.
I do have some cards saved in drafts, so you may just see a card or two from me during July, but will be not so good on the commenting.
By the way its gorgeous & sunny & hot here in Cyprus.
