A taste of the Orient

Hi again, only little old me, sorry I've been a bit quiet, I have been crafting in the background but just haven't got around to posting too much.  I also have some amazing, exciting and fabulous news (well I think it is), which I will save for the end of this post.

First to my card, which was actually made a while ago & I'm only now getting around to posting it.  I decided to use the Kimono CD, which I have massively under used although I regularly drool over the collection, I suppose it's like the favourite dog eared paper pad that you get out every once in a while to stroke and then put away because it's far too good to use!  Well, this time I printed off one of the card companions and a matching backing paper and set to making a card.  I used card from one of the Core'dinations packs to matt and layer, and also used this with the Kimono blossom branch die, I then created coordinating purple blossoms with gems at their centre.  The butterfly, although you can't see it in the picture has been sparkled up using the clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen, which I absolutely adore and add to anything that stands still long enough!

Hope you like it!

And now to my news..........(insert drum roll)............ I've been accepted onto the Die'sire design team with Crafters Companion!!!!!  I cannot believe how lucky I am (not lucky enough to win the Euro millions yet, but that's another story), if you hear of lots of happy dancing, that will be me.  Soo looking forward to getting started.

Anyway, suppose I'd better go and get ready for another day at the office (got to fund my crafty hoarding somehow!).
