Kristine's Blog Candy!







Have you ever visited Kristine's amazing blog? She creates the most amazing cards...and I've always loved that not only does she create a beautiful front for a card, she fully decorates the 2 insides and the back!!!!!! So...she's offering a blog candy right now...the challenge? to make a card inspired by hers....not an easy task I tell ya - she's a hard act to follow!! I thought I would give it a go anyway!!

Girls, I had soooooo much fun decorating this brown paper bag! It actually came together quite quickly and once I'd started the idea's kinda flowed for me! I must confess that I was pleasantly surprised by the result...so thank you Kristine for throwing out such a fab challenge!

Don't forget to enter for my birthday blog challenge here! (PS all papers used in this were from my scraps box!!) bx

Wow Bernie! This card is so beautiful! Glad you liked the challenge. And that's why it is a challenge, to make you challenge yourself and make a cards different from what you use to!
Thanks for playing!
