Round in circles

You can tell I just love fuchsias! I have made loads of cards with them on already and couldn't resist colouring the main stamp from my new Fuchsia pack from the Pick of the Bunch collection by Tonic Studios again. These are super quality clear stamps which I drew for Tonic Studios and are the first part of the Pick of the Bunch collection which will soon include dies, embossing folders etc.

I'm sponsoring the Allsorts challenge blog this week with a prize of 4 of my digi images from A Passion for Stamps  (NB. the prize is 4 DIGI images)and several of the DT have made gorgeous cards using some of my digi images too so please feel free to pop over and have a look (and join in too!)

This is actually quite a small card and I've just added a hint of lilac behind the beautiful doily shape which is one of a gorgeous set of doily dies which has just been released by Tonic Studios. I've added one of the little butterflies from the same Fuchsia stamp pack at the top of the card.

The cut out fuchsia has been attached to the card with 3D foam squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L  - great quality little squares which are so easy to remove for use as they are separate on the sheet .

Enjoy your weekend - I'm busy making card samples with the Pick of the Bunch stamps for a trade fair in  Norway and more samples for another flurry of shows on Create and Craft starting on 20th August
