Evening All! Just a quick post from me tonight as I wanted to share with you all the card I made today. I was so excited yesterday when Sugar Nellie finally announced that these darling images were available in digi format whilst they wait for the rubber so I immediately hopped on over to funky kits and bought them. You can expect to see more from me real soon!

I decided to use Marlene's fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl so I'll be entering my card into their challenge. As always I have coloured my image in with Copics. All the dps used are by Tim Holtz and the dies are all Magnolia doohickey. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and the roses from wild orchid crafts. I will also be entering my card into the following challenges :
Make it Colourful challenge - Warm or cool colours
Craft your Days Away - Anything goes
Creative Inspirations - Use something new (my image and doohickey dies)
Inky Impressions - Ribbons & Pearls
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're all having a great weekend, enjoy what's left of it!! Lotsa luv, hugs xxxx
