RAY OF SUNSHINE {Guest Designing at Quirky Crafts}

{GDT Quirky Crafts}

What a surprise when I was a Top 3 Winner for  Quirky Crafts challenge no.2 and got invited by the lovely Cazzy to be a guest designer for them.. Their current challenge is Lets Quirky Well Pile it High, and is to include lots of layers and dimension. 

I got this cute image from Robyn's Fetish called ITS A BEARY NICE DAY to play with and you can purchase it here.

So with no further ado, here is my creation with no surprises at all, its another centre step card. The sentiment is a from Create with TLC.  The image and sentiment were coloured with Copics and dry chalks.  The flower embellishments were created with a scalloped square punch and the tutorial for it can be found here on my blog.  The design paper, buttons and ribbon are from my stash.

So hop on over to QUIRKY CRAFTS and have a look at me featuring as guest designer as well as their Design Team's gorgeous creations, and oh yes, don't forget to enter the challenge.




Venturing over at the following challenges with this:
A huge welcome also to all my new Followers who have entered my 800-Follower Celebration give-away and also thank you to my loyal and faithful Followers who have also entered.  There is still time to enter and everyone who is a Follower and leave their email address in a comment, is a winner.  So come on enter, you don't have anything to loose.
