ABC - "R" is for Red & Crafty Creations #6 & AMY Day

Hi girls, the Easter holiday is over for another year and I suppose it is back to work for most of you. I hope you all had a great weekend and are fully refreshed and raring to go again. It's great that you have had time to visit here today. I just hope you find something to please the eye. The weather is still lousy here. Very wet and windy and showing no signs of improving.
Anyway on to more pleasant stuff. This card was made with two challenges in mind. the ABC challenge was for a predominantly red card and at Crafty Creations it was a case of "Anything Goes". I inked up Magnolia's "Tilda with Ladybird" and coloured her up with my Copics. The papers are Karen-Marie Klip & Papir A/S. I cut the corners using a Cuttlebug die from plain paper. I also used this paper for matting and layering and making my homemade flowers. the gems and ribbon are from my stash. I glimmermisted the card on completion.
I really hope you like this card and I would love to know what you think of it. If you have time to leave a comment it would be greatly appreciated. I love reading them. They are so helpful and encouraging.


Just a quick reminder that today is the day that the new set of 4 AMY stamps will be available on the Crafty Sentiments Shop site. Whay not call over and see what goodies are lurking there.

Thanks for calling in on me. I hope you have a great day and achieve everything you hope for. Stay healthy and safe.
