My Besties UK Apple Blossom Party

Good morning everyone. Today is an exciting day for me as it sees my first post as a Design Team member for My Besties UK Challenge Blog. I am so happy to join their team and work with Sherri Baldy's beautiful designs.

Today over at My Besties UK Challenge Blog we are having an Apple Blossom Party, which is a fantastic chance for the members of the DT to share the projects we have made using the gorgeous Apple Blossom papers and Pocket Letters which are available from the My Besties Shop as a download or paper pack.. The DT projects are really beautiful so please pop over to the blog and take a look- if you leave a comment then you will be in with a chance to win a prize.

For my first project, I have created an easel card decorated using the papers and a cute little digi stamp from the My Besties Shop. I concentrated on using the green papers from the collection for this one.

 I have used the First Edition Flower die to create some flowers from the papers and a border die I found lurking in my drawers. In the paper collection there is a set of bows, which are so easy to make and finish off the card beautifully.
This gorgeous image has been coloured with Spectrum Noir markers:
Face FS4 TN2 TN3 CR3
Hair TN1 TN2 EB3
Bow LG2 LG3
Pie TN1 GB2 EB1
Dish CR2 CR4 PP4
Apples CR3 DR1 DR6 LG3 JG1
Bird TB2 TB3

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
Spectrum Noir Monthly Challenge Anything Goes
My Besties 3D and More Challenge #14
Meet at the Scrappers Corner August Challenge
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge 72

For my second card, a 7x7 square card, I used some slightly lighter colours for the image and layered one of the pink papers with a gorgeous floral paper. To carry on the pretty pink theme, I finished with a pink bow and gems.

Some of the Spectrum Noir colours used for this card were:
Face FS2 FS4 FS9 PP4
Hair TN1 FS1 EB2
Bow CR2 CR3 PP3

I'd like to enter this card for the In the Pink Challenge 75- Anything Goes

Hope you like today's cards, thank you for visiting. I really do appreciate all of your comments x
