Paper Crafting Journey's new challenge is up!

Hi guys,

Paper Crafting Journey has a new challenge just started which I'm hosting this fortnight, woohoo!! The challenge is such an easy one - flowers! The even better news is that the prize is also fantastic - Di's Digis are the sponsor and if you haven't checked out Di's store before I think you should now (just click HERE). I have used one of Di's super cute images on this card, how adorable is he? I have used Di's Digis a number of times on my cards so if you want to see them all, click on the label at the bottom of my post and my blog will just show you cards made with these beautiful stamps.

The main flower and green vine is from Flourish with a Bling. I made this card for my sister and used some dimensional magic on the balloons to make them glossy.

Flourish with a Bling are 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. If you mention my blog (Lucy) when ordering we will send you a bonus Jasmine laser flourish!
