Serendipity!



Afternoon, all! I hope you're all having a productive weekend!

I was sorting my stamps the other week and came across this little sweetie from Penny Johnson for Stampavie which I've had for ages! What a huge bunch of flowers! He's coloured with Speccies, the roses are stickled and there's Glossy Accents on the bow.

I used a very nice Sketch from Fetch A Sketch.

The gorgeous bright papers are free with the current issue of 'Quick Cards Made Easy' and the colours are so pretty. The ribbon is paper raffia ribbon and I dotted it with gold Liquid Pearls - and smudged one blob! But the smear of gold shimmer on the raffia looked so good that I added more smears, and also on the bow! Serendipity is a wondrous thing! So my tip today is - smear liquid pearls on your raffia to give it some bling!

(It also gives your fingers some bling!)

The blue flowers and yellow pearls are from stash, and the sentiment is LotV.

It's great being back into a normal routine again!

Thanks for looking, and I'll see you tomorrow for the next Dream Valley Challenge!
