It's Blooming Marvelous at Moving Along With The Times

Good morning. Today it's 
 because our lovely Lisa would like to see

somewhere on your project this week.

 We also have a 'blooming marvelous' new sponsor this week:
gif maker
and 1 lucky winner will receive

So here's what I did
I made another inky background this time using Bundled Sage and Spiced Marmalade Distress Inks and then overstamped this with Kanban Dandelion image using Archival Black ink and then shadow stamped in between to add some depth. (The last time I used this stamp I was asked where I got it - I got mine from Create & Craft but I'm not sure they still have it in stock)
This was then matt and layered onto co-ordinating pieces of cardstock.

The foiled spotty Design Paper is from a huge 200 sheet bundle of different 8"x8" gorgeous papers from Craftwork Cards that I got in their sale a few weeks ago for a bargain price of £7.50 :o)
The scalloped edge card base is also from Craftwork Cards.
Sentiment - Kanban Crafts
Ribbons from stash
Flutterbys - Martha Stewart - blinged up with Stickles and some adhesive pearls
Please pop over to the main challenge blog to see the gorgeous inspiration from the wonderful DT girls and we have some lovely new GDT joining us this week - it would be lovely if you could welcome them.

Before I go I just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your kind words and support yesterday - it really did help and meant such a lot - I have made so many wonderful supportive friends here in blogland and I am so grateful to you all.
