My Inspiration Project for April's Imagination Craft's Challenge Blog.

Good morning Lovelies,

Well here we are again at the beginning of yet another month.   This year is flying by at an enormous rate of knots.  One minute it is January, next it's April !   Spring is finally here,  all we need now is some lovely blue skies and beautiful sunshine.

This morning, I would like to share my inspiration piece for the Imagination Craft's Challenge Blog.   The theme this month is 'Anything Goes.'   If you would like to join us in this challenge and you have some Imagination Craft's products, why not give it a go!  you could be in with a chance of winning a fabulous £40 voucher to spend at Imagination Crafts.   A fantastic prize.   Remember you can check out my teamies inspiration pieces by going to  www.imaginationcrafts.co.uk  and clicking on their blog.   Ok let's get started.

Make a base card from white card stock.   Onto this,  matt a slightly smaller piece of silver mirror card., then a piece of cerise paper.     Take some white card, smaller than the silver and put through an embossing machine along with the stencil and emboss.

    
 Remove the stencil from the embossed card and colour with distress ink.   Lay the stencil back on top of the embossed card and spread small amounts of the sparkle medium through the design.  Fix a strip of cerise paper across the bottom of the card and glue some lace on top of the paper strip, securing the lace on the back of the card. 
       
       
Thread some beads onto some silver cord and  put across the top left of the card, securing on the back of the card.   Matt this card onto the base card.

     
Cut out a heart shape from some firm card and cover with the silver material, adding a small piece of wadding to the front of the heart  before covering with the material.   Secure the raw edges of the material by bending to the reverse of the heart and glue.

        
Glue the heart to the card front.   Cut out a small flag shape and colour with the distress ink.   Stamp 'With Love' onto the flag shape using a Versamark pad and heat emboss with silver embossing powder.   Glue this to the front of the heart.   Add a rose to the left of the heart.

                                     
Add some small flowers to the bottom right of the card, on top of the lace.           


     
         
Well, that's it finished.   Hope you like it and hopefully it may have inspired you to take part in the challenge, so go on, why not give it a go, someone has to win lol!!!

                                                               Big Hugs   Jennifer xx
