Red Hot Hydrangea plus Winner of Candy

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) Here I am with another of my cards from my challenge to myself to use my existing stash. For this project I used a stampin' up stamp coloured with Promarkers on an oval nestie. I then used Papermania Red Hot Capsule collection papers and coredinations card in complimenting colours. I placed  the image on a scalloped oval card mat cut with a nestie, than made three panels of rectangle papers matted on carstock and arranged these at an angle. I used two papers as my base, one as a border. Lastly I added American Crafts polka dot ribbon and Papermania Henbury Lane Brads, the top one just happens to be an image of a hydrangea so is perfect!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Ribbon Girls: Pink and Green
Sugar Pink Hollow: Pretty in Pink
Moving along with the Times: Girly plus Prim and Proper
Divas By Design: Lovely Layers
Oldie But a Goodie: Show us your ribbon
Make It Monday: Anything Goes

Sorry this is a little late, with being poorly I am a little bit behind! The winner of my candy chosen by is no.24 Janice. Please contact me using the email address in the sidebar of my blog :-)

Crafty Ribbons/Fiskars LED canvas

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well. I am here to share a backlit canvas using my Fiskars tools in a rather unusual way. I took the canvas off from the frame and folded it in half to randomly punch across the front of the canvas. I kept the cuttings for later. I then stapled the canvas back onto the frame. Next I stapled muslin fabric across the front of the canvas. I then added Clermont Cotton Lace across the bottom of the canvas as a border. I then got out my flexmarkers and coloured the punched canvas pieces in three complimentary colours. I then asked tiny gems to the centre of each and glued them randomly like flowers across the muslin fabric.

Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments!
