CES DT Card & Challenges!


Hello everyone, another miserable day weather wise but a new challenge for you over at the 
CES Challenge Blog so something to smile about. Thankyou to all who entered my challenge last week, gorgeous cards and I enjoyed looking at them even if I didn't have time to comment on all. This weeks theme has been set by team Sheena and she has chosen "Anything but Square" (a shaped card). Didn't read this bit and not sure if rectangle is classed as a shape but too late now LOL. 
Now I must admit to not having alot of free time these last few days so I have used a Wild Card from October Afternoon but decide it looked a little bland so coloured with Copics/Promarkers and a Clear Gloss Glaze. The papers are WOJ available from Crafty Emma's Store along with the Miniature Carnations, Button and Fibre and Cherry Blossom Flowers. The border punch is EK Success and have also used Stickles, Paper Doily, adirondaak Gold Paint Dabber and Viva Pearl Pens. Distressed paper with MME Distreser and Chalk Ink Pad.

The gardeners have finished my new Deck area so I went out yesterday and added a bit of colour. I will add a piccie as soon as the suns shines.

I am entering this card into this weeks
CYDA - Vintage

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking

Hugs
