4 in 1 card :-)

I made this card following Mina's fabulous sketch on the Truly Scrumptious Challenge I also made it to fit in with the Roses on Paper Challenge they are asking for the colours Orange Green and Brown. they also have a DT competition for the new Belles'n Whistles stamps :-)
I am also entering it into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge who are asking for Autum Colours :-)

edited ,, When i uploaded this last night I forgot to add the Stamping for the Weekend Challenge too !! oops ! They have the same colour combo Orange/Brown/Green :-)

I coloured the image with copics and 3D'd her onto this lovely My Minds Eye paper. The flowers are white Prima ones which I sprayed with peach and meadow green glimmer mists,, gorgeous and shimmery :-)

I used orange mesh and brown ric rac ribbon, an umbrella charm and thats it I think :-) I decided to leave it without a sentiment so I can use it for anything :-)

I have a blog candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek before you hop off :-)
Thanks for looking and I really appreciate all your comments so please leave me one :-)

edited ,, oh my goodness ,,, I have just been to link my card into the Truly Scrumptious Challenge and have just noticed that I have used the same papers as Beth ,,, I am very sorry ,,, I did not mean to copy you. x x

Chocolat :-)

I made this card to fit in with 3 challenges ,, the fabulous 'Movie' theme on the House Mouse Monday Challenge :-) The DT have made some fab cards which really made me laugh,, if you haven't seen them you really should :-)
I followed the fab layout on the Sketch Saturday Challenge and the recipe on the Charisma Cardz Challenge,, which is 1 ribbon, 2 papers , 3 flowers and 1 charm :-)

The image was a RAK from Sue Scoopystuff ,,thanks hun x I thought it was a good image to make into a card with the film title 'Chocolat'..
I coloured the image with copics, the papers are Basic Grey but the cover fell off so I have no idea from which pad ,,, :-) the flowers are prima and the brad is by Kaiser craft.

The text stamp is Hero Arts ,,, I just noticed that the button isn't in the right place ,, will fix that !! :-) I also used a few dew drops to finish.

Thanks for looking and don't forget to leave me a comment before you go so I know you dropped by :-)

There is a candy at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)

I used one of my new HM stamps for my card, this one is called BLOWING DANDELIONS I bought this from Simon Says Stamp

The image was coloured with copics and the backcround chalked with Pebbles inc pastel chalks ,, lovely :-) I stamped along the bottom with a Hero Arts Dandelion stamp in shadow grey and brilliance beige inks. I also stamped around the scalloped card too to soften it a bit :-)

The paper,, I only used 1 piece !! is from a fabby Funky Fairys download, this one is called Simply Brushed and is simply gorgeous,,, :-)

The flowers were punched from a daisy punch,, lots of them ,, I tried to make them look like dandelions ,,,, !!!! :-) The ribbon was a little piece that was in a lovely blog candy a while ago ,, I only had a little piece and I just thought the words on it were perfect for this stamp ,,, what a coincidence !! :-)
The fancy edge and leaves were made using Martha Stewart punches :-)

I will be offering this fab HM stamp as my Weeky Blog Candy sponsored by heidi at Simon says stamp. if you would like it then see the post at the top of my blog ( which I will do in a few mins so if it's not there yet pop back later :-))
