A New card for you :)

Good Morning Ladies, I hope you are all well. I have a new card to show you today that I am particularly pleased with, you know when you have finished a card and you like it so much you don't want to give it away, well this was one of those for me. I used greens which is very 'out of the box' for me as I usually only use them for grass. I followed the sketch on 'Sunday Sketch and Stamp' this week which is shown below.


To make this card I used free digital papers which I printed on a laser printer as this gives a better wuality print in my mind. The image is one of the new 'twisted tea party' line from the Greeting farm. isn't she just brilliant, I really enjoyed colouring her last night, my happiness didn't even dicapate when i realised I had coloured her eye in using E00, i simply used my clear blender to remove the colour in that area :) 


I used some black Raffia lace which I bough once again from the Quicotic paperie with super fast delivery. The lime green ribbon was bought on Ebay as part of a bundle and i think this is the first time I have used it but it goes so well. I coloured my image with copics but stupidly forgot to write the colours down, I will have a look tonight and add it on then. 
The sentiment is a stamp from my woodware sentiments set. 

I am entering this card in to the following challenges; 

Cupcake craft Challenge - Round and round
Creative Card Crew - Celebrations
The pink elephant - Add Green to your colour combo
Cute card Thursday - Ribbon tastic
Copic creations - A wee bit 'o' green

Hi Amanda

I think I owe you an apology, I could not understand why I had not seen any new posts for you and seems I had not linked to follow - thought I had. But done it now.

I really like greens and this blend of colours is lovely. Know just what you mean about not wanting to part with some cards.

I am about to mail you.............
