I'll be back soon with another creation, so I hope you'll join me then,


  1. Two really beautiful parchment creations using your new Groovi Plates and Polychromos pencils Em and love the background paper used behind the parchment on the first, and then the oh so pretty flowers on the second and perfect with the kraft card as a background. Thank you for joining us at the NBUS Challenge this month. x

  2. You never cease to amaze me. Two special parchment cards beautifully done.

    Love, Hugs and Blessings,

  4. they are so lovely, on the first I like the glow of yellow behind the sentiment, such a pretty touch! Love the look of flowing ribbon and the gems are such a pretty touch with it!
    Lovely flowers in the second, like the detail they have and the lovely framing around with the leaf border and the pretty flowers. Like the gems with the corner flowers too!

  5. These are spectacular, Em, as always! Love the beautiful colors and gems! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell

  6. As always Em, these are gorgeous. Love the added gems for that little extra bit of pizzazz.
