Well Hello Everyone

How was your weekend?  Wasn't Andy Murray just A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!  What an incredible game, I couldn't take my eyes of the tv - brilliant!

I hope your week is also off to a good start too ;o)

It's Tuesday which means it's challenge time over at Papertake Weekly and our theme for this week is "Old, New, Borrowed, Blue".

Now this doesn't mean it has to be a wedding (even though I have done a wedding card), it can be absolutely anything as long as it fits the challenge.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is the one and only Whiff of Joy, so if you want to be in with a chance to win a voucher to spend in their on line shop, then get your entries in over at Papertake Weekly and you're in.  As always, check out what the clever DT girlies have made for your inspiration.

Here is my card:

So, something OLD - well that'll be me then ;o);  something NEW - fabulous image from Saturated Canary;  something BORROWED - I borrowed a sketch from Dawny P for my layout;  and finally, something BLUE - the colours on my card.  What do you reckon?

The recipe for the card is:

Digi Stamp:  Saturated Canary - Double Take - by Krista Smith
Papers:  Maja - Vintage Spring Basics
Rose Dies:  Marianne Design Creatables - English Rose and Die-namics - Mini Royal Roses
Leaves:  Memory Box - Tender Leaves
Swirl Die:  Magnolia Doohickey - Leaf & Swirl
Corner Die:  La La Land - Filigree Corner
Heart Stems:  Impression Obsession - Heart Stems
Heart Charm:  The Hobby House - Double Hearts
Rhinestone Sparkler:  The Hobby House

I have coloured the image with Copics:

Skin:  E21 E00 E000 / R20 R30 (cheeks)
Hair:  E29 E27 E25 E23
Dress:  C1 C0 C00

The image has been outlined with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink
The papers have been edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink
I made the sentiment on my computer

I have one final picture to show you of the inside of the card:

And there you have it.

I hope you have a great week whatever you are doing and thank you for popping by.
