LOTV DT Card & Challenges

Wow, we had so many entries in the last LOTV Challenge. The cards were gorgeous. Looks like alot of us are in summer mode, though the weather is a little behind I reckon. Today we see a new challenge over at the LOTV Challenge blog. Bev has created a fantastic sketch for you and I'm sure to use this one again.


I have used "Thomas with Cake" the from LOTV Shop and coloured with Copics. I've glazed the icing and added lots of stickles to the flowers. The sentiment is Kraftin Kimmie and papers are BG. The dies are my Nesties and have used 2 pieces of paper from the KaiserCraft La Di Da Collection, lots of sparkle on these to. Martha Stewart Punchs and 3 Milky Gems. Hope you can join us again for another fab challenge. And just a reminder that LOTV have a new Inspiration Blog "Idea's to Inspire".

Mix of flowers from stash, butterflies and leaves are both punches.



And here are a few challenges my card fits;

Penny Black - Lets Get Punchy
Allsorts - Animals
Cutie Sunday - Freestyle
