CELEBRATE {Art by Miran Showcase}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

I have been playing once again and this time with this gorgeous girl called FLOWER GIRL VANESSA created by the talented Mi Ran.  She is so elegant, don't you think.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase VANESSA here.

The flower embellishments have been created with circle punches and design paper. She has been coloured with Copics. The sentiment is from CREATE WITH TLC.  The design paper, bling, buttons and ribbon are from my stash.  The hexagons in the background were created with a punch.


I would like to venture over to the following challenges with this:

Rosie Guiher said...

Awesome casd Desire, love all the colors and design.

Question not sure if i put your 900 badge on my page right because there is nothing saying for me to shrink it to fit. I used the one that says text by just clicking on your banner then copying it to that but when i bring up edit it doesn't let me do any thing but cancel or save. Did i use the wrong one.
Thanks sorry for putting it here but not sure how to email you.
Rosie

Dawn Lancaster said...

Such a pretty card as ever Desire! I love love love the colours you've used!
Hugs

Marg said...

Rosie, you need to save most of the blog badges/images as an IMAGE on the list & then insert the web address of which ever link it states or that you want to link it to. That way you will see the shrink to fit box & be able to edit it as much as you want.
Hope that helps, Marg B ;)

Marg said...

Fabulous card, as always Desire...
Good Luck & Thank you for joining in with the Through The Craft Room Door
challenge.

Marg said...

Dear Rosie,
The problem you are having is because you used the "Text" box, where as for the majority of badges need to be added with the "Image" box. You could, if you wanted add the link to which ever page you wish to link the pic to. If you follow that you should be able to shrink the pic & edit it as much as you want.
Hope that helps,
Marg B :) x
