How Charming!

Good afternoon!
Didn't the weekend fly by...

I had some lovely news on Friday that I was showcased over at Less is More
for my shades of green card!
Thank you Chrissie and Mandi :)

I'm back today with my entry for  this week's challenge .
The challenge is to add a charm to your card.

For my card I used a sunflower digi from Dilly Beans Stamps,
which I cut out with nestabilites and sponged around the edge with blue and green ink
before I removed it from the die.

I coloured it with copics and added glamour dust to the centres of the flowers

I'm afraid I don't know where I got the charm from - possibly ebay?
and I added a TH jump ring so it would hang without twisting.

I tied the charm on with two strands of hemp twine (one of my lovely purchases at the craft show)
The sentiment is by Personal Impressions and is stamped with SU
Chocolate Chip and Apricot Appeal inks.
I've just realised Lydia should be at her music lesson
Must run!
Thank you all for visiting my blog and for leaving comments ~ I really appreciate it :)
Have a lovely evening,
Sarah xx

Ps. Thank you Lisa for choosing me as one of your top picks at Make it Monday :)

Oh so pretty Sarah...the little watering can charm is adorable and a perfect match for the sunflowers :0)
I need to find some of the hemp twine..mine is either too thick jute or thin floss, that looks perfect and I like the colours too :0)

You've done it again! a beautiful "clean" card that just stands out, the charm is perfect and good idea to use the jump ring to keep it straight.
