Kathy’s Lily Pad Palette and Hero Arts Monthly Challenge

This card is for two challenges, one is a color palette challenge on the Lily Pad's blog and the other is this Months Challenge on the Hero Arts Blog, calling for a.o. flowers.




So I used the Garden Star flower stamp from Hero Arts, which I distressed with Victorian velvet. The leaves are made with a leaf-stamp from the Leaf Print set. The cuttlebug background was sent to me by Franziska, I particularly love this one. The little pearls were a gift from Jill W - thanks again ladies.


Hope you all have a lovely week. I just had my tooth boored out, nerves and all as I broke it this week. It needs a crown. Luckily I didn't feel any pain, I was very nervous.

Thanks ladies for your visits, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your friendship in this way.
