A few challenges

b'day card (12)

b'day card (12) close up

Hello everyone, I hope you are enjoying your Sunday.  The weather here is beautiful, like a spring day, still a bit on the chilly side though!  For my card today I used a gorgeous greeting farm image called ‘flapper anya’ and coloured her with my promarkers (not very happy with her face though as my skin tone colour ivory was running out so it looks a little patchy).  The papers are BG from the eva paper pad and the plain card is from the papermill shop.  The sentiment was created on the pc and this and the image were cut out with my circle nesties.  The flowers are a mixture of imaginisce, ek success punch and rose head from Joanna Sheen.  The leaves were cut with my MS frond punch.  The adhesive pearls are kaisercraft.  For a bit of extra bling I’ve added stickles to the fringes on her dress and the feather in her hair. 

The challenges I’m entering this into are:

Anyone for Anya challenge – card for mum (or any special lady)

Creative card crew challenge – celebrations

Papertake challenge – buttons, bows, brads and bling (mine’s got the bling)

Quixotic challenge – leave it out (use leaves)

CRAFT challenge – mother’s day/flowers

Simon says stamp challenge – mother’s day/girly

Alphabet challenge – s is for stamping

Fussy and fancy challenge – movies (Chicago)

Stamp something challenge – something girly

Crafty angels challenge – photo inspiration (I’ve used the colours)

Crafty calendar challenge – flower power

Enjoy the rest of the rest of your day.  Don’t forget to call back tomorrow to see my DT cards for stamp with fun challenge and cupcake craft challenge.  Thanks for stopping by.
