Fussy and Fancy Challenge 137 - Springtime Flowers

Happy Friday
Fussy and Fancy followers!

Our challenge for the next
fortnight is hosted by our
very sweet and talented


Hi, I'm Vannessa and during the day, I am a primary school teacher in the UK.

 I love teaching my lively class of 7 and 8 year olds, but thoroughly enjoy making cards and colouring as a way to relieve all the stress that comes with a job like mine!

I generally use Copics on my cards, but I am slowly learning how to use distress inks too! 

I am still practicing so I am not quite there with those just yet.
 I am a huge fan of ribbon, patterned papers and pretty flowers and just had to pull out heaps of my Marianne Designs dies for this week's challenge, Springtime Flowers.

Looking forward to seeing lots of gorgeous flowery designs for my challenge this fortnight.

The challenge Vannessa has chosen is:
Springtime Flowers
Here is the lovely card
that Vannessa has created
for her challenge!

LR0108 Ribbon Flower 1 Dies, LR0162 English Roses Dies, LR0155 Broderie Anglaise Border Die, LR0192 Leaves Dies, LR0107 Floral 3 Dies, LR0269 Anja's Vintage Decoration Die & LR0270 Anja's Vintage Ornament Die all from Marianne Designs
