I'm back

Well the last three days have been pretty exhausting but I've had a great night's sleep and I'm ready for some challenges! Today's is Creative Inspirations challenge which has been set this week by my lovely teamie Cheryl, she has chosen Get Well Soon as her theme. We are lucky enough to have two sponsors for this challenge - Fantastic Ribbons and Ellephantastic with fab prizes from both.


 My card, because I've been so busy this week, is a quick and simple one. The image is Bird on Branch by Softpencil which I coloured with Promarkers  and used some pearl glass outliner paint on the berries. I've framed the image with brown cardstock using a Nellie Snellen die, then used the same cardstock to make a backing using a Cuttlebug embossing folder and Whisper White ink from Stampin Up. My punches are also from Stampin Up.

The challenges I'm entering this for are:
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Open theme
Sweet Stampin - Punches
Alphabet - W for Wings
Totally Papercrafts - The great outdoors
Pixie Dust - Swirly swirls
