My little piece of Paradise

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) I'm new to blogging, only started at the beginning of January 2014. In that time I have had a lot of fun participating in various challenges and have been inspired by so many of you. I'm new to card making but enjoy it so much. I've been a scrapbooker for many years and card making seemed like the next logical step:)
I hope you enjoy your visit and feel free to leave me a comment or follow my blog. HUGZ :)

A Monochromatic Girly Card

Hi again :)
I'm back with another card that I want to enter in a few challenges.
I was asked by a family member to make a card for her sister but the problem is.....I have never yet her sister lol, so I decided, how can you go wrong with girly?
I love this image and had just bought some thule, which I had never used before on a card, so thought I would try it out and this is what I came up with.

I'm also really excited to tell you that the current challenge going on at Crafting From The Heart
Is Fancy Folds and there are some great sponsors this week in The Doodle Garden and Papernest Dolls.
Come on over and join in the fun :)
