Hi My name is Kevin,

I have been card making for about four years now.
I also paint and make salt dough figures. I am totally blind in my left eye,
so it takes me longer to colour images and to produce my finished cards
but I am never happier than when I am creating. 
I am delighted to be joining the Stampin with the dragon team as a 
Guest designer for this challenge.

Please pop over to the challenge blog here to see his wonderful creation and the rest of the Design Team pieces.

Here is my inspirational piece for this challenge
The base of this card is a lemon card and the designer papers are from some more new stash, I know get me again, I do try not to spend honest :( this is another Wild Rose stack and so pretty just perfect for the welcoming of Spring.  I have used the large MS punch twice and layered this to create a sort of fan on the page (the hubby said they looked like wheels on a cart :o )  I have used an octagonal nestie and some large pearls from the Hobby House.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid on this occasion.  The little butterflies punched out and liquid appliqué added to their little bodies.   The image has been coloured with copics and distressed with mulled lavender and over stamped in the same with a leaf stamp.

Which reminds me I have just picked up my new colours of copics from Grimsby Crafts - 36 new colours, oh I cannot wait to play, thanks Lynn x
