CES Challenge DT Card & other challenges...


 Hello everyone, Saturdays here again and were well into spring. Kids halfway threw the school hols and the weathers been quite pleasant. Thanks to everyone who entered last weeks challenge over at the CES Challenge Blog.
This week we have a fab sketch for you and this is my take.


And this weeks prize is a £10.oo voucher to spend in Crafty Emma's Store


I have used my new Tatty Buttons Stamp that I purchased from Ally Pally and coloured with Copics. I don't usually use such strong colours but love the way she's turned out. Papers are Websters (available at Crafty Emmas Store). Flowers are from CES and Wild Orchid and the Butterfly is a Marianne Die Cut  coloured with a Chalk Ink Pad, dabbed with the Gold Adirondaak Dabber then covered with Gold Glammer Dust. All edged with Chalk Ink Pads and used my favourite "Field of Sky" background Stamp around the image.
Flowers spritzed with Gold & Red Glimmer Mists.
Sentiment Catslife Press also from CES.


Heres a list of challenges;
Stamp Something - April Showers
Totally PaperCrafts - Springtime
Sarah Hurley Challenge - April Showers
Cute Card Thursday - Weather Inspired
I Did it Creations - Sing a Song (Under My Umberella - Rhianna)
Party Time Tuesday  - April Showers
