Marianne herself is also giving away this fabulous prize.

Over to my creation. I have decorated a giftbag for a babychristening. As i became a grand aunt to a little baby boy in january, i thought i`d create a gift bag for his christening.

This last weekend i helped my hubby with his stocktaking and i came across these fabulous white giftbags. I imediately saw the potential in these, lol. He works at ARK which is a chain of bookstores here in Norway. So there... i got to give him some advertising too, lol. These bags are about 5,5" x 4,5" and they come in packs of 3pcs at the prize of £1,57 (kr15,-)

Not too long ago Marianne D released these baby themed creatables. I just adore these. They are so beautiful. For this card i have used:

The Cameo is from Websters Pages and is something i won in a candy a long time ago. I also put some Distress glitter glue around it. The butterfly is one leftover embellishment from my wedding.

Spring colours at WhoopsiDaisy

Hey my sweet friends!

Time is passing so fast. It is not long till summer is here. Meanwhile i have created a new card for the new challenge over at WhoopsiDaisy. We want you to create something you assosiate with spring colours.

For my card today i have used pale pinkish colours on my papers with hints of green. I realize that it doesn`t show too good on the pic.  To make it pop i have used some sharp yellow seambinding to catch the colour of the balloon on the image. I didn`t actually have yellow seambinding but i used some distress ink (Mustard seed) and some water and got this gorgeous yellow colour. I then added this beautiful vintage button i ordered from Canada a long time ago.

The image i have used is available on sheet #180 and you can find it here in the WhoopsiDaisy digi shop.

The colours i have used are:

Vanilla, Saffron, Oatmeal, Tan, Sunkissed pink

Sandstone, Mustard, Buttercup

Salmon Pink, Coctail pink, Baby pink,
