A Great Granddaughter

Good Morning all!
Happy Jubilee Weekend to all in the UK!
I hope you're all enjoying the celebrations!

Over at The Crafty Pad  this week, Team B have created some wonderful
inspirational samples for this weeks fab new challenge!

 I also have a little card to share with you today!

The image I have used is The Crafty Pad Designs
I've used this image several times & I just love it!
It's so versatile!
I took the inspiration for my colours from the photo's


I used Promarkers & Flexmarkers to colour it up then added 
a bit ofDiamond Sparkles glitter.
The image was cut out using a scalloped circle nestie then matted onto 
some plain cardstock.
The D is a piece of Oragami paper is from some blog candy which I won
and the buttons are from a Papermania Capsule Collection

I hand cut & rolled the little flowers & the double bow is a 
recycled ribbon from a work diary! 

The sentiment was made in my graphics programme.
I added a little bit of glitter to the heart in the centre!
Thanks for stopping by!
