I'm just visiting...

Two weeks ago I won a challenge at Die Cut Dreams and the prize was a guest designer spot for one week. Their theme for this week is Wedding which must be one of my Top 3 Feared Cards To Make.

I have combined 3 digital stamps from 2 different companies, how's that for you, lol.
Aim em Up Cupid and Run Away Cupid from Make It Crafty
and Cupid's Rectangle from Whimsy Stamps.

Oh, and those ornate metallic corners and delish filigree circle? SO not metal, just lasercut chipboard from Make it Crafty. If you live in UK/Europe - it's now available at Quixotic Paperie as well.

I propped the image on bed of feather which I nicked from my kids craft box again.
The pearls are loose pearls from Quixotic again - totally in love with that stuff atm. Next time I'm putting in an order I'm gonna try out THOSE, just look at the colour!

Oh, and I coloured on Make It Colour blending card...sheesh, it sounds like Zoe has totally purchased my immortal soul - but I just love her stuff!!! lol
