Simply Charming

I can't seem to get my timings right at the moment with all my DT cards - I either make them way in advance or it's a rush to get them finished! No rush job however this week for Diva's as we switch back to Team B and a new challenge of


This week we are sponsored by the fabulous Stamp & Create.  To find out the prize on offer, hop back to the Diva's By Design page.

For my card, I went with a gorgeous Hannah Lynn image from Crafts and Me.  I really am trying to work on my inner diva here and have tried to banish plain Jane in favour of a more decorated card.  So not only do you have lots of layers and a flower, you also have a charm, twine and die-cuts!  Papers are by MME, my favourite Paris & Co pad. And, I even managed to paper piece her clothes!

So that's my take on this Charming challenge.  For more inspiration, head over to the main Diva's By Design page where you can feast your eyes on some gorgeous cards, then hopefully join us in this challenge.
