Papercraft Essentials Cover girl!

Happy Saturday all...
Can't believe I've already had one week off work.
It's been a strange one as I've had only one daughter to look after and she's a home girl so I've had a couple of afternoons crafting while she's been busy with friends.
We've also had a sleepover with relatives, watched a lamb being born at the farm and been to the pictures to see Rio 2.

I was very excited when I went to Tesco to pick up this months Papercraft Essentials.
I had been asked by Dulcie at Wild Rose Studio if I would like to make some cards for the mag way back in February and was delighted when I found it on the shelf to see that I had made the front cover with
 this Elsie card...

Here's my photo of it...
Elsie and Roses stamp...Coloured with Promarkers and then pencils...
Floral/Gingham papers, Rose Die and sentiment stamp also WRS.

Martha Stewart Doilly punch used here to add the frilly edges.
This jewelled heart I have had in my stash for a while.

Some challenges...
Allsorts...Spring Blossoms
Crafty Ribbons...Flower Power
Lets Craft and Create...Punches and Dies
Papertake Weekly...Spring has sprung
Creative Card Crew...Spring
The Shabby Tearoom...Floral fantasy

I made 7 cards altogether so I've got a few more to show you...
Please pop back again to see me.
