It's my second Fussy and Fancy Friday GD Easter card.


So welcome everyone to my second card for the Easter challenge at Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. The sponsor this fortnight is The Charm Barn and you can find the charms I used here. There is a fantastic collection of charms available so please check them out - they are all so cute.

This is my card which uses the great sketch at Penny Black Saturday as you can see here.

Of course there is the gorgeous Penny Black stamp - Easter Exchange which has been coloured using watercolour pencils. This has been mounted onto a scalloped circle of core'dinations card duly sanded.

I have added a lovely rose with beautiful blue tinges and I added stickles glitter glue to bling it up a bit. I have attached the charm to the tag using a couple of jump rings. I wrote the sentiment with a Sakura stardust pen.The other charm is attached to the two ribbons threaded through a jump ring, one is pale blue organza on the top and the other is white satin but I used a blue Promarker to match the colour scheme. The flower paper is from a Summer Driggs kit called Beautimous and the other paper is a Funky Fairys one. I have distressed the edges of all the paper - although I think I need to be a bit more ruthless!!!

Anyway I hope you will check out my fellow Fussy and Fancy Friday Team mates and join in the fun.

I shall also enter the following challenges with this card:-
