CES DT Card & Challenges!


Hello everyone, finally the weekend and I see its getting a little lighter. Means I dont have to walk the dog so early in the evenings. Thanks to everyone who took part in out last CES Challenge, loved looking at your gorgeous creations. This weeks theme over at the CES Challenge Blog is 
"CHECK IT OUT". 
So lets see those plaid or gingham papers on your cards/projects.
Now my card turned out nothing how I planned and I am so happy with the final result. I'm not one for skeches and like to see how things lay on the card.  This has to be one of my favourite stamps "Fairies On Tiptoe" from LOTV. The cardstock is Kraft.The dotty paper is a piece of scrap and the gingham is Craft Creation. Used the gorgeous wide MS Border Punch an edged all papers with a Brown Chalk Ink Pad. This is my third attempt colouring on Kraft. The first was just pencils, 2nd copics and this has been done with pencils blended with Sansador, defo my favourite so far. Lace, Viva Pearl Pen, Cheesecloth, Stickles, Gold Ink dabber, Copper Glimmer Mist, Gingham Bow, MS Butterfly Punches, lots of flowers and dies including my new TH Clock die.
I have for a first also decorated the inside of the card but silly me forgot to photograph it - doh!

So lets see you get your gingham out and enter this weeks CES Challenge where you can win a £10 voucher to be spent in Crafty Emma's Store, theres lots of goodies in the sale to!
