A couple of cards and some news! :-)

Hello! What a gorgeous day! Perfect for sitting inside in my craft room... :-/ Not really, which is why this is such a quick card this morning! It's for this weeks Muse challenge which is this gorgeous baby card by Gillian. I cased the baby theme plus the simple layout with a popped up stitched panel. I've also used this weeks Less is More challenge of 3 colours or 3 of one colour, I've gone for the latter. It's one ink pad but its a Kaleidacolor ink pad of various blues, I just inked my sentiment with 3 of the bands of colour, quite subtle but gives a nice ombré look :-)

Now for my news, the very lovely Liz from Buttons for Brains has asked me to be a design team member for her new shop! She sells gorgeous card making kits using loads of the fave makes, Basic Grey, Hero Arts etc! Very cool!

I've been playing with the Garden Party kit this week, all the links will be in the supplies list below for any of my cards :-) I made it for the Paper Players sketch but as I was making it, the challenge was ending! Oops! But I also made it for this weeks Colour Q challenge and Creative Inspirations which is Spring Flowers. Thanks for looking! Have a lovely weekend!
