Hanging on for you....

Hi Susan here again....

Over at Digi Doodle Shops Best a new challenge has started today and the theme is 'Flowers', how easy is that!!! The challenge runs until Thursday 19th August, Emma and I are guest designers for the month of August, so please call across and join in the fun with the challenge.

There is lots of inspiration from the DT girls on the Digi Doodle Shops Best Challenge Blog and full details of the challenge can be found there. Our sponsor this time is Daisy Digi Doodles and they are offering a $10.00 Gift Certificate to spend in their store to the lucky winner.

Now back to my card.... I used an out of date sketch from Crazy 4 Challenges,I liked this one, simple but effective for what I wanted.

My backing papers are from Nitwits, I have distressed all the edges and glittered them with Stickles! The organza ribbon is from our local market. I tried to give a summery feel to the card with my colours and papers, this carried on with the image and the butterflies.

This cute little digi image is called Hanging on and can be bought from the Digi Doodle Store,

This is what it looks like in the store and you can find it by clicking on 'Animals categories', then 'On the fun side'.

I coloured it using Pro-Markers and then gently inked the background before distressing and glittering the edges.

The little butterflies I made using a punch, colouring them with Pro-Markers and then glittering with stickles.

My flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts, I glittered the edges with stickles.

The sentiment I made myself on the computer.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Thank you for taking the time to look at my card. I hope you liked it.

Love Susan
