Woohooo!!!!   It's here!!! our very first challenge over at

I am so excited and thrilled to be here at the Launch of this fabulous new Challenge Blog and of course to be showcasing the wonderful designs of Marianne's amazing creations.  The challenge is monthly so there's ample time to get your creations into Mr Linky. The theme this month is


We are looking forward to seeing all your beautiful creations using any of Marianne's gorgeous products, either stamps, papers, die cuts, flowers etc etc.

For my DT card I've used sweet Tilda as my image and coloured her with promarkers and a little glamour dust.  My papers are Prima and K&Co. Flowers are a mixture of WOC, petaloo and some from my stash. My Marianne D's dies that I've used are the swirls from the Frames & Swirls die (LR0116) and the Small Butterfly (LR0153)

The Full Recipe for my card is below this post.
