Rainin Dasies for a few challenges :-)

I made this =card following Joanne's fabulous sketch on the Magical Crafts Challenge :-)

I used my lovely PB Rainin Daisies stamp and for a change coloured with distress inks instead of my usual copics :-) I need to get back into practice with watercolouring ,,, the copics have made me lazy :-)

The papers are from Craft Creations and then black card for layering. I did loads of silver embossing for this ,,, was lovely to get out me heat gun and dust off the cobwebs !! :-)

I am also entering this into the following challenges :-)

Just Cute Bears
,,,,,,Buttons and Bows (one button and 2 bows)
Allsorts ,,,,,,,,,,,,,Animals
Penny Black ,,,,,,,,,,Punches (I used 2 SU punches for the sentiment)
Creative Card Crew ,,,April Showers bring May Flowers
Spoonful Sugar ,,,,,,,Furry Friends

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 :-)
