Just For You

Well I don't know what to say - two posts in two days - I think I need to go and lay down in a darkened room!

Now I'm new to blogland and I am still finding my way around but I couldn't believe my luck when I stumbled across across the Basic Grey Challenge Blog and found a wonderful sketch by Heather so I just had to have a go.

Now pink and yellow is not a normal combination for me but the Two Scoops paper from Basic Grey is just beautiful so it just had to be used.

Did you know that Basic Grey has its very own digital collections which you can find here.  How fantastic is that; I don't ever have to worry about running out of paper as I can just print off another copy :o)

So now for the complete card:

Yet again I've used another Lili of the Valley stamp - and this one is called "Emma Pot Plant".  I have coloured the image with Copics as follows:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 R20 R30
Dress & Hat:  R85 R83 R81
Hair & the Dog:  E29 E27 E25 E23
All the Yellow Stuff:  YR23 YR21 YR20
Leaves:  YG67 YG63
Plant Pot:  E15 E13 E11
Shading & Outlining:  W5 W3 W1

I've also given all the edges of the card, paper and image a good dousing in Spun Sugar Distress Ink and the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The ribbon is from my stash.

I am also going to enter this card in the Sparkles Forum Challenge where the theme this week is Elegant and Lace.  I think little Emma looks ever so elegant in her dress up clothes.

Another challenge I am going to enter is across at Always Something Creative where the theme is yellow and another colour.

Crafts and Me also have a fantastic challenge running which is "Add a Flower".
That's all from me today.  Thanks for taking the time to look and please feel free to leave me a comment.

Bye for now.
