Hi, my name is Jill. I am a stay at home Mummy, born in Scotland and living in Dubai. I love to scrapbook, make hand-crafted cards and paper projects. I am a full-time mummy to Adam and have a wonderful husband and great family. I love stamping and being creative. I lie awake at night thinking up new designs! Does everyone do this or is it just me? :) Thanks for stopping by. Jill x

No embellishments!

Good morning crafters,
I hope you are all doing well. I am back in the land of sand, sea and sun. Almost organised after spending the last two months visiting my family. The older i get, the longer it takes me to unpack and adjust again.
Anyway, i am here today with a new card for the fantastic new challenge over at Charisma Cardz.
This week the theme is 'No Embellishments' which was chosen by Gem.   This was a challenge for me because i love adding embellishments and i had to refrain myself a few times from sneaking one on here and there! :)
The sponsor this week is the fabulous Digistamp Boutique and they are offering one lucky winner 6 digis.
The image i used is from Digistamp Boutique and was a 'freebie' on their website in June. Thank you Digistamp Boutique.    Isn't it cute? (the image, not my card!) lol

Paper: Craft UK 6x6'' scalloped card base, Blue gingham, white polkadot embossed cardstock
Image: Freebie from Digistamp Boutique
Accessories: EK Success heart border punch
Ink: Copics, Tim Holtz distress ink ( Broken China)
Acrylic paint and Embossing tinsel
