High Tea

Good morning folks.  Fridays are wonderful, mind you that probably because I don't work Friday's.

I am off today to the hairdressers with my Mom and then we are going for lunch, so it will be a very relaxing day for me today. 

Hope you are having a good day?

We start a new challenge at Crafty Girlz Challenge today.

Challenge 11 has our usual 'Anything Goes' theme.

Our sponsor for this challenge is

For my card today I have used a digi stamp from our sponsor called 'High Tea'

After printing out my image I fussy it using my BSC with a 1mm border and then cut a mat with a 2mm border.

I have coloured my image using a mixture of copic sketch markers and sakura gel pens, finishing off with some white glitter for the icing.

I then chose a couple of backing papers from a digi kit in Serif Craft Artist and the complementary backing is some co-ordinations card.

As I always struggle for layouts I went back to my tattered lace magazine library and found my layout adapted to my needs.

I had a couple of wooden cherry embellishments from my crafty stash which I coloured using my copics and the triple embossed.  I have finished off with some nuvo pearl drops in the pink.
