A wee nestie card

Hello! Yes I know, two posts in the one week...unheard of!!

This is my entry for the Candy Bar challenge over on  Craftymess  the challenge this month is layers.

I put my white card through my Cuttlebug with my largest scalloped circle nestie making sure not to cut right round, leaving a "hinge"  (layer one) then took the next size nestie down and run some pink paper through (layer two) Having stamped my favourite Penny Black stamp on white card and colouring it with my Koh-i-noor pencils, I run it through with a petite circle nestie (layer three) I stamped the hedgie another few times decoupaged the bees wings and the flower and added glossy accents( layers four, five and six?!)  Before finishing off with some punched leaves and a flower I bought at the last craft fair I was at.

Hope you like it!

Long time no see!!

Yes I know, I'm rubbish at keeping up to date with this...SORRY!!!
Been working a lot lately so not had much free time for crafting. I went to a craft fair a few weeks ago, met up with some fellow crafters which was nice ohh and of course bought some goodies!! Well, be rude not too!

This is the card I'd like to share with you today it's one I made for a special friend's birthday, she has a passion for all things blue! Hmmmm I wonder who that is ;)....... Lynne

On a 6x6 card I layered some textured card that I'd punched with my MS scallop punch,
I coloured the stamp with my promarkers and mounted it on dark blue card then added 3D foam to make it stand out. Finally I added some flowers I had in my stash, think I got them in Lakeland so that'll tell you how long I've had them!! The bigger flowers are Papermania. a few punched leaves some card candy in the middle and voila!!
Promise it won't be as long till I post again!!
Till then
Happy crafting x x
