I'm Top Talent at Our Creative Corner.



Welcome ~ I'm very excited today to be the Top Talent today, over at Our Creative Corner.  I was lucky enough to win the Foil and Alcohol Ink challenge (here).   So I'm being showcased with a brief series of questions and answers.   And here's the card I made for my interview

Anniversary card

I made this card for my parent's wedding anniversary last week...
I used two different PP's  from Pink Paislee.   My friend Sue (who is on the team at Our Creative Corner) uses stitching and this inspired me to stitch around the centre panel.   I typed the sentiment in Word and cut with a Spellbinders Floral Oval die.  The sentiment is a Hero Arts one and my flower was made with some crinoline cotton which I cut with a Tim Holtz Tattered Poinsettia die and coloured with Distress Stains.  I added some Gel Medium to stiffen the flowers a little and put it together with a gem brad.  Added some gems to finish. 

Hop over to the Blog post on Our Creative Corner to find out a little more about me.  Thanks for stopping by today.
