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 :)

The prize is 7 digi's of winner's choice.

The image i chose to use this week is Gus and Stella, I just love these two characters and they are a fun couple to work with.  I coloured them with my Prisma Pencils and did my cut outs on my Silhouette, I then added some bling and voila.....
