Charisma cardz challenge–DT card

Good morning dear friends.  I cannot believe it’s Thursday already, the week is flying by, although I’m not complaining!!  Work is super busy at the moment and the day just whizzes by, which is fantastic, although I do think I’m wishing my life away lol!

It’s time for a brand new challenge over at charisma cardz challenge and it’s Team Gem’s week to share their cards.  The lovely Joyce has set the theme this week and she has chosen “fancy folds”.  Now as I was a bit tight for time I played it safe and made an easel card although I do find them extremely difficult to photograph and I forgot to take a ‘side-on’ view!  Here is my card:

I have used a super gorgeous new image from DigiStamp Boutique called ‘Hoop Rosie’ from the April offer of the month set called ‘funtime Rosie’ which is available for a special price until the end of the month.  There are 3 images in the set and all are equally as cute as this one.  I coloured the image with promarkers and had a go at doing a cloud background with chalks.  I will try using my promarkers in the future but it was really quick using the chalks (and my finger tip!).  I have to say I am really chuffed with the clouds as it was only my second time of doing it.  The pretty pastel papers are my mind’s eye from the “dwell” 6x6 paper pad.

We have two sponsors this week.  Firstly we have Some Odd Girl who are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images of their choice.

Our second sponsor is Digi Doodle Shop and 2 winners will receive a $5.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
