Inspirational Sketch/Whimsy/ My Time To Craft/DT Card




Another multi challenge card. My initial intention was to use my DT stamps and papers from Whimsy Stamps and Bearly Mine Designs. I took the sketch from Inspirational Card Sketches. "Rainy Day Emma" from Whimsy Stamps was paper pieced from free papers from a magazine, so is the pink strip down the side. All of the other papers on this card are from the new Designer Exreme Vol 2, paper CD from Bearly Mine Designs. The papers are stunning and I love the little extra's Donna has put on. See the little "Things To Do" list I have created, thats on the disc to, I just resized and added my own text. Coloured Emma with Promarkers and added flowers and gems from Stash. Sorry about the picture quality, its very dark here today. This also fits in with the Whimsy Stamp Challenge blog, theme being flowers. You dont have to use a Whimsy stamp to play along either, so go take a look at the current challenge and see what fab creations the DT have come up with. My Time to Craft have a "Kids Kards" theme so am also entering into that one to!
Edited this bit, weathermen have changed their minds from wind,rain and thunder to dry but very gloomy.
Garden could have done with a drop of water though.
Thanks for look......
