Water Lily Skiing


Aaah favourite things !!! - where do i start and i'm sure if i put on everything that i liked my card would be 12x12 in size !!!, so instead i had to compromise and settle on just a few things, and i hope you like what i have chosen ? maybe some of my favourites are also yours ? - these are a PB image, Basic Grey papers, gems, Wild Orchid Crafts flowers (so wish i had ordered them sooner), Nesties, MS punches, Tim Holtz distressing inks  - -  - -

I also used Vellum on this project, which i don't use very often, but i loved the effect it gave with both the embossing of it and stamping on it for the sentiment - so watch out for more vellum on my projects !!!

Ok anybody else having major problems with Google, so will have to wait till OH gets in to upload the other challenge, as it won't let me get into my bookmarks - why don't they just leave things alone ????

Right onto the Card and Challenges :

Allsorts Challenge - where Challenge No: 78 is a fabby sketch - that i have flipped over, to accommodate the butterfly !!, i hope that's ok

Basic Grey Challenges  - where Challenge No: 33 is 'Wings'

Papersundae - where Challenge No: 44 is 'Pick Your Sundae Topping' - you have to pick at least 2 out of blue, embossing, punching and ribbon - I chose Embossing (D'vine Swirls on Vellum) and Punching (MS punched edge - Doily Lace)

One Stitch At A Time - where Challenge No: 39 is 'Your Favourite Colour' - mine is purple
