Digi Chooseday

Hi Every one ....... so I have some exciting news:

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh .... I'm so excited, I was asked to join the Digi Tuesday team, in all honesty I am still a little stunned!! Thrilled, honoured, and very very excited!!!

So this is my first week designing for the Digi Tuesday team. This challenge this week is " Anything Goes" however the DT was asked to use a design sheet. So this week I decided to step back in time, and played with one of my favourite collections, the Rosebud collection which you can find here

& I noticed it has been reduced to £6.99 .... honestly if like me you are in love with Mr Darcy and you love all period drama's this collection is an essential!!! it has sooooooo much in it!!!

So this is my card, using a couple of design sheets ... the paper is so amazing, believe it or not I have not even been near it with distress inks, that lovely distressed feel was already there!! ... I have added a little sparkle to the butterfly wings using a SN sparkle pen, and added a few paint splatters using some Kuretake Gansi Tambi paints ( unfortunately those details aren't showing up to well in the photo, but in real life it looks really lush )

Please come over and join us, I am looking forward to being inspired by your creativity. Also Don't forget that Nikky always offers an amazing discount in her POLKADOODLES store on a Tuesday, so please pop over to the blog and grab your discount code :-)

Thanks for looking
