Another lovely day


Again it's sunny and warm here - not what the BBC said at all! Before I go out and do something out in the sun I just wanted to share a card I've made this morning.

I was inspired by a fabulous card by Jodi I saw during a blog hop the other day - you can see it here, and I followed the sketch at I Did It Creations challenge. The image is a Leanne Ellis one from Funky Kits and she has been coloured green and blue to fit the challenge at Cupcake Crafts.
The backing papers are Stampin Up and the ribbon is from my stash, the charm - well I couldn't decide whether it was supposed to be a flower or a starfish so have just decided to call it a flower for this project lol

The card is also for the challenges at Cute Card Thursday - dieing for a punch, I Love Promarkers - charming and for the Thinking of you theme at Daring Cardmakers who also are highlighting The Ribbon Girl (who has some gorgeous ribbon in her online shop) and Post Pals. If you are not already aware of Post Pals click the link and read all about it. I haven't chosen who I am going to send the card to yet but that's next on my to do list.

Hope the sun is shining wherever you are today :o)

What a great little girl image. I like the useof blue and green instead of the tradition girly colours...it gives her a bit more attitude!
