As You Like It Challenge #84 - Your Trademark

Hi Crafters,

This week at As You Like It the challenge is to showcase a project using your 'Trademark' style - what defines your style and WHY.

Although I have tried and loved many styles whilst creating cards for a multitude of customers with differing tastes and requirements my favourite and therefore trademark style is definitely CUTE!
I just love cute images and whether the card ends up clean and simple or full of frills and details it's always the cute images that draw my eye.

Image - Billy Turtle - DigiStamp Boutique
Medium - Pro/flexmarkers
Crealies Stitched Oval Dies
MFT Stitched Panels Die
Cheery Lynn Japanese Garden Lace Oval Die
Sentiment Tags - LOTV
Enamel Dots

Taking a 5 mins break at work with my coffee and thought I'd squeeze in a bit of commenting lol. This is super cute, I like those stitched panels too, I may have to look for that die. Like you I love to try out lots of different styles, though if asked to define MY style I guess I would have to say softly shabby chic. Softly because my cards aren't really THAT shabby lol. Love your style, whichever one you do but there's no question that you excel at the cute. Hope you have a lovely day :) xx
