I'm a Guest Designer at Elisabeth Bell's World (Elisabeth Bell image)

Hi everyone,

I am very honoured to be a guest designer at Elisabeth Bell's World this month. Their challenge is "Lots of flowers" so I have used some floral paper as well as flower embellishments and flowers in the little scene of the gorgeous image. This sweet girl is called Merry Weather and I have been admiring cards created with her for a long time. I printed her out a couple of times so I could fussy cut and paper piece most of her, the only original pieces of the image are the scenery and her back foot! You can take a closer look on the photo below. I used a homemade cloud template and blue chalk for the cloudy sky.

Flourish with a Bling have free shipping on all orders over $20AUD for the month of April! This includes Australia and worldwide! No matter how large the order, there's no postage cost.
