Bloom & Grow

Good Evening,

I can't quite believe it's a week since my last post, but it has been quite a busy week.  Tonight's card has been a work in progress since I coloured in the image on Friday night.  Iona and I spent some time together playing with my Promarkers, she coloured in a Cheerleader Tilda image which was right up her street!  I didn't get round to finishing my card until this evening.

The image is by Helz Cuppleditch and was a bargain from Hobbycraft for only £1, and I've coloured it with Promarkers.  The papers are from the Ice Cream Parlour collection by Craftwork Cards and the sentiment is from LOTV.  I've matted and layered everything on red Coredinations cardstock.  And I've finished off the card with pink spotty organza ribbon, gems, pearls and an apple shaped button tied with green and white bakers twine from American Crafts.  I'm entering this into my first ever challenge outwith those on the Docrafts website so I hope I've got all my links right!!!
Bye for now,
Shona xx
As well as the Digi/Stamping Challenge over at Docrafts I wish to enter this card into the following Challenge:

  3. Hi Shona, wonderful card, love your colours and its a great image. I bought a few of them too but not use yet. Good luck with the challenges, I do them sometimes, but I don't really like the ramdom thing, I would rather win with merit. but I'm not sure if there are any.

    Yes I know what you mean by time, it's going so fast, nearly May and still cold.

    have a good week, kate x
