Crafty Purple Frog DT Card........ Ivy Mermaid

Good morning peeps, how are you all? Its freezing here along the North Coast I had a fight this morning with my bin.......I won of course in the end & got the lid open lol. Everything was frozen!!
Well its Thursday so you know what that means....yayyyyyy its
We had fabulous entries last fortnight you were all amazing!!
This fortnight the theme is
'Distressing'
We all love to distress our papers even if it does upset us getting the scissors etc to our beautiful papers it does look fab afterwards lol.
Our fab sponsor this fortnight is Crafty Emma's Store who is offering

the lucky winner 5 Promarkers of their choice.
For my card I have used another one of the new sheets, I am loving these so much.

This is 'Ivy Mermaid' decoupage which of course you can get from here she is so beautiful & I love the greens are her. My new 'Go Kreate' die came a couple of days ago so I just had to make an easel card with them, I love this shape. This is cut with the larger die so obviously you need an A4 die cutting machine for it, I used my Grand Calibur.


The beautiful seam binding I got from Ebay but I did order a load from The Ribbon Girl which arrived the other day & its gorgeous so why not pop over & place an order, The gem I got for crimbo which I think hubby got from Quixotic Paperie.


This is to show you the beautiful layers of the decoupage.


The sentiment is a digi sentiment from Whimsy Stamps. Cream & moss green A4 card are from
Flowers, leaf & pearls are from my stash.
Well thats it from me but please pop on over to the challenge blog where my DT sisters have made incredible cards. Dont forget although we love seeing your Crafty Purple images you can use anything you like & enter as many times as you like.
Thats all from me for now you never know tho I may see you later lol.
Take care everyone & thankyou so much for stopping by I really appreciate it.
Hugs to you all
