How Charming!

 It's time for a new challenge over at Fab n Funky and this week the theme is 'charms', so you need to be using a charm somewhere on your creation.

Now I don't know about you but I have a fair few charms in my collection.....and do you know why? Well, I buy them, and then I can't bear to part with them as I generally save them for 'special' cards!

Ironically, the one I have used on this card was a freebie from a magazine, but it has made me think that I really need to get those charms out and make use of them, so you might see a few more of them popping up in future posts!

For this card I have made good use of my Grand Nestabilities for the matting and layering, and I have printed a gorgeous Besties image which I have coloured with promarkers and decoupaged up in three layers.
I was going for a pastel appearance but I am not sure if I have gone  too far and made it a bit wishy washy!!

There are lots of other lovely cards for you to feast your eyes on over at Fab n Funky so I do hope you will come over and join us.

Finally - let's not forget about some of the other fun challenges out there:

Thanks for visiting.

  1. Lovely colour combo Sharon. Gorgeous card shape too and I LOVE how you've suspended the lovely locket charm from the Memory Box bow. Very clever. Hugs, Wends x

  2. I love the shape of your card and the pretty colour combo. This image is adorable and the heart charm looks great hanging from the bow. I tend to hoard my charms too and only use them for special cards.
