Twinkle, twinkle...

Just a quick post today - gotta go and make my Mom's birthday cake :-)...
I got this lovely image in a RAK from my pal, Clare, (thankyou!) and coloured her with my promarkers. The papers are papermania capsule collection, I punched and scrunched the flowers and then added a charm and button brads from my recent candy win from Debs (thankyou!).
I'm entering it into 4 challenges:
Pollycraft Monday Challenge: Recipe (3 papers, 2 buttons, 1 charm)
Crafty Cardmakers: Video inspiration (Lady Gaga "Bad Romance")
Sarah Hurley: Monochrome
I'll be back again soon cos I've got loads to make - especially since I've just secured an order for 47 (yes, 47!) thankyou cards - phew!
Love 'n' hugs,
Mel xx

Thanks for all your comments :-)

Lin, the punch is the Woodware Plum Flower punch - I punched 2/3 of them, dampened them, scrunched them up and layered them.

Love 'n' hugs,
