Guest Designer for Charisma Cardz !

Yeah . . . was really chuffed to be asked to be the GD for Charisma Cardz for the next 2 weeks and loved the themes as it really gave me a chance to play with my stamps . . . not been giving them enough "lurve" at the moment !

The theme this week is "Delightfully Daisies" and knew which stamps I wanted to use as I have had this fab stamps for simply eons and they haven't seen the light of day for . . . well eons actually ! This also makes this card very suitable for the Secret Crafters challenge which is "Dig Deep". The same flower design comes in 3 different sizes so stamped them onto some DP that was in my scrap box (thinks it's DCWV) and came up with this card . . . .

Flower stamps: "Doodles for Daniel" - Stamping Bella

The swirls stamp is from SU and is one of their wheel stamps . . . so loving these at the mo as they make backgrounds in an instance. Cut the flowers out and layered the bigger designs on top of each other, finished with a pearl brad. The small flowers have been randomly placed and finished with a gem.

Had to cheat a little on the gems as didn't have enough of the same colour, so used my Promarker (Cocoa) to colour 2 of the gems in to match the other 3 . . . not quite the perfect colour match but not too far out. The fab sentiment is from an SU hostess stamp set.

Well got to dash as up to my ears in "stuff" and have set myself the goal of getting it all finished by the weekend ! Eeeeekkkkkkk !
