Papertake Weekly Lilac and Lemon Challenge :-)

I sort of got carried away while I was making this card and lost the plot completely ! The theme this week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge is :-


lovely colours and the DT have made some fabulous creations with these colours ,,, ulike me who went Lime instead of lemon ,,,,,, I think I managed to redeem myself with lemon buttons and leaves ?? :-)

For my card I followed Ariana's lovely sketch on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday Challenge

I used my lovely new Boefje Susanne stamp from Simon Says Stamp. They have a whole range of these stamps, all of them are gorgeous. Boefje is a Dutch word meaning little rascal,or like a street urchin :-)
I coloured her with copics and added clear gel to the ribbon on her hat and inked the edge with dusty concorde distress ink. The papers are from the Wild Rose Studio The sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set.

Thanks for looking :-) The DT and our Guest Designers Helen and Christine have made some fabulous creations for you to see so hop on over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge to see them :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-) You only have until 8am GMT tomorrow ( Wednesday 17th) to enter :-)
