I was asked to make a very plain Ruby wedding card.I normally do parchment for some thing special like this .
So reading though the blogg challenges i came up with this idea and also entered it into the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge
All they wanted for the challenge was to incorporate stamping with some sort of scallop.
I stamped a medallion on to card and glittered.Then embossed a scalloped oval.i also embossed each corner and highlighted it with chalk

Where to keep them

I am a novice when it comes to copic markers.Having said that i am building a nice little collection of them.I didnt just want to keep them in a pencil case or draw and constantly root for the colours i needed.So here is were my lovely Hubby came up trumps.
Out of some off cuts of wood and a flat piece of metal this is what he made me.

Layered up

Thought this card was something different to the usual mans cards i normally send
Its an 8 x 8 card with a flap on the front.The image is off a CD by Jayne Netley Mayhew.I printed the image off several times and layered it up on the flap so that it all matched up with the main image

I noticed on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge the theme is 3D,brilliant,i can enter this as the butterfly and flowers are layered up.
The butterfly is a medallion stamp that comes in two sizes.i stamped them on to blue card and glittered them up.
The flowers are all cut out of parchment, heavily embossed then layered up and i added a little pearl to finish them off

Hello Ladies,
Came across a challenge on Dotties world that pricked my interest.I have never done monochromatic before and i might of taken it a little bit too literally.But here goes.
The image is from the pixie chicks which can be found in Charmed cards and crafts.Coloured the image with copics which i am just getting to grips with.Backing paper,card and flowers are from my stash and the sentiment is computer generated.
