LOTV Challenge



Well, as I said, not much crafting was done on Thursday night - thats what happens when we haven't seen each other for 2 weeks! But we had both been spending, we both liked the new Marianne Large Frame dies, so I bought one and Diane bought the other -the Cuttlebug took a hammering!
Made a card last night for the LOTV & Simon Says Challenges and used the sketch on Cute Card Thursday, which was great to work with.
I have had the papers for about 6 months, bought out of the 'oddments box' in my local craft shop -5 12 x 12 D/sided papers for a £1 - bargain or what! Does anyone have papers that they just look at? well these have been looked at a lot waiting for the 'right card' - it was difficult to cut into them though!
The LOTV image was coloured with Promarkers and I kept the colours pale for a vintage look to go with the papers, which I distressed with Walnut stain distress inks. I used Stardust stickles on her wings. The flowers are ribbon roses glued on prima flat flowers. The sentiment is from a set that I won on the Papertake Blog hop a while ago.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
LOTV - use circles
Simon Says - Coffee & Cream
Cute Card Thursday - Sketch by Christine
Do You stack Up - Anything Goes
Ribbon Girl - Cream, Pink & Brown (Pink flowers)
Anything Goes Challenge - Distressing.

Thats it for now, enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Thanks for looking and if you like what you see, please pop back.
