A Flower for You!

Happy Saturday Everyone!

I have a new crafty cupboard courtesy of Storage 4 Crafts and this morning it was an absolute pleasure to make my first card with a place for everything and everything in its place!  I think I may even turn into a tidy crafter - shock horror!  

I saw that the latest challenge over at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog was to use a Wryn image and being a huge fan, I decided to give it a go.  It's also Saturday and that means a new sketch over at the Sketch Saturday blog.  I love their ideas and this one was no different...

I think this sketch will be so useful for a whole variety of cards.  So I'm sure you'd like to see my card by now!  I'll not keep you in suspense any longer!

Isn't this image just adorable?!  It's called Bugs and Kisses!  I started with a 5.25" kraft card blank and then layered up a piece of Me To You red dotty paper which came free with a magazine.  I thought the jaunty angle might add an extra dimension so squint it was!  I took a piece of Dawn Bibby paper and chopped the silver bubble border off to give me a purple stripey layer.  My ribbon is from DoCrafts and I've had it for ages.  

I coloured my image with ProMarkers in Cinnamon, Vanilla, Dusky Pink, Blush, Ruby, Lipstick Red, Spring Lilac, Lilac, Henna, Cocoa, Caramel, Cool Grey 1, Yellow, Marsh Green and I also used the blender pen on the little hedgehog.  My flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I really love them.  

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Sketch Saturday - #260
Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog #110 - Use a Wryn

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting,
