I'm a guest designer at Crafting By Designs (Hannah Lynn image)

Hi everyone,

I am delighted to be a guest designer at Crafting by Designs this challenge! They have a wonderful challenge blog with weekly AND monthly challenges! This week's challenge is to use ribbon, easy huh?

I have made this card for my darling daughter's 14th Birthday this weekend, I hope she likes it. I think she gets a little bored of me always saying "do you like my new card I made?" and she'll often tease me and say "oh no, that's ugly, really, that's not cute at all", isn't she a meanie hehe?

I have distressed all the edges and someone asked me the other day what mediums I use - I always colour with copics unless I say otherwise. I have used pearl flourishes from my company Flourish with a Bling. The gorgeous fairy is from Crafts and Me, she is the creation of Hannah Lynn who has the most fabulous images ever! I have created a few more cards using some newly acquired Hannah Lynn images, will post them within a couple of weeks.

Flourish with a Bling are a retail and wholesale online store. 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!
