GDT for Heck of a Challenge

I am thrilled to be guest designing for Heck of a Challenge this month especially as the challenge theme is right up my alley - Spring with butterflies and pearls - Oh, I love everything about that and I'm sure you all do too! 

My card is an easel card and I've coloured in the Make It Crafty image with copics. The oh-so-fabulous pearl flourish is from Flourish with a Bling (named after my daughter Chloe). The Chloe flourish comes in 9 different colours and is a twin pack with extra pearls too! We sell worldwide and if you order and say you've come from my blog we'll add in a free Jasmine laser flourish! (Click on any of the names above to be taken to the websites).

Flourish with a Bling are now a retail store as well as wholesale so you can buy direct from us now! We have some fantastic themed packs (eg. Bling, vintage, fairy garden, boys, princess etc) at amazing prices, you can check them all out by clicking here.
