Bird songs and swirls

It's been a while since I played with a Fashionable Challenge so I am really glad I could play again today. But first things first :). We've got a big announcement - the challenge blog now has a new website address! You can now find us at:

Please make sure to update your shortcuts :). So, onto the new challenge - this time we'd like to see your beautiful stamped creations featuring swirls. You've got two weeks to join and the winner will get a really lovely surprise from our new sponsor Flonzcraft!

For my card I used a some really gorgeous stamps: Minuet Bird & A Bird Sings and a Jumbo Spring Bouquet (all Stampendous). The flowers and the sentiment were embossed with the Gold Detail Embossing powder. I coloured the flowers and the bird with Inktense pencils. And I also added a touch of Shabby Blue Frantage. The papers are K&Co and DCWV Mariposa.

My card has been inspired by a little floral fantasy, just like the name of the blog from the lovely and talented Brenda, who's got a fabulous candy on her blog at the moment :).

My Fashionable DT Sisters have prepared a big treat for you - be sure to check out all the projects! And this week we also have a Guest Designer playing with us - a very talented lady Astrid Maclean!

Thank you for all your lovely comments on My Dream Day LO :). Have a fabulous Sunday!

Big hugs

brenda said...

You must think me so rude Joanna, only recapping on my commenting for FVSC did I see the note to my blog in your post.

I am so sorry, blame flu and a fuzzy head, although I really should have noticed first time round and said thank you before.

I do hope you will link your card up to my little celebration, you never know you just could win one of the prizes.
