Hi again...there's a story with a bit of a mishap behind this card...I made it yesterday using the fab papers from Polka doodles cd sprinkles of kraft, same paper from the same printed off sheet remnants...everything was made up, went to photograph it, looked once at the pics and then a second and third time only for them all to reveal a lilac line running across several times, wasn't evident to my naked eyes or maybe i need specs. These fab digi cameras show it all!!! So since yesterday i've been pondering away, shall i scrap the whole thing, replace the backing paper by taking off and bending all the little, no, no...get the white sakura pen and draw in a wiggly line over the nasty print lines. There we have it!!!

I used my new Martha Stewart fence punch (prize from Simon Says Stamp from the Creative Card Crew win...'many thanks'), brown is from my grocers from the 'banana box', image is ofcourse LOTV w/coloured, some glamour dust added, couple of stamped sentiments, ribbon from Crafty Ribbons, love these thin gingham ones.

Challenges are 10...Ideas to inspire 'world cardmaking challenge' 2nd entry, Ces 2nd entry 'pretty girls', Papertake Weekly 2nd entry 'anything goes...punches', Party time Tuesdays 2nd entry 'show us your shapes', Birthday sundaes 'ribbon', My Mums Craft shop 'all creatures great & small', Anything 'die cuts & punches' as is Fab n Funky, Simon says 'sparkle & bling, Creative Inspirations 'friendship'. Thankyou for your lovely comments.

Don't you just hate it when that happens; my card today has a white splodge in the left hand corner that I didn't notice! Your card has turned out beautifully; so much detail! Thanks for playing along with us at Papertake Weekly this week and good luck! :0)
