Hi, another dismal and grey day..what better way to get through it than crafting away with some of the most gorgeous images in blogland. This creation has actually come to life as I've had it swirling around in my head for several days. I believe this is 'rose red' from Krista , freebie from Saturated Canary, coloured with Promarkers, I'm watching Create & Craft Letraset shows to get my colouring right as I'm so dissatisfied with day I'll get there! Lovely d/load paper from Nikky's fab Polka Doodle cd's (these are scraps left over from previous cards would you believe). Lots of die and punch work, Go Kreate dies for main shape, Martha Stewart fence punch, EK Success butterfly layering punch, made my own pleated fan, gorgeous lilac ribbon from The pretty little ribbon shop, beautiful pearls from Meiflower.
So onto some challenges...Saturated Canary 'fairytales', Ribbon Girls 'shades of lavendar', Papertake 'ribbons & pearls', Stamptacular Sunday 'recipe..ribbon/twine, pearls/gems, dies/punches', J and C Creations 'floral delights', House of Gilli 'die cuts', Cupcake Craft 'paper pleating', One Stop Craft 'monochrome', Creative Card Crew 2nd entry, Craft Your Passion 'scraps' and Inky Impressions 'make it girly'. That's it for now, family are all run down with bugs and colds but I'm so glad I had fun making this one as it's an escape from being the nurse! Bye for now.

Hi Ruby,

Thanks for your comment just now, but it got me thinking I've not seen you on my dashboard for so long so when off to check it out.

Seems I'm not one of your stalkers although I'm sure I was at one point, you must've been one of those I lost when my blog had heebie-jeebies earlier this year.

So apologies about that, unfortunately you don't notice some things until they hit you in the face do you ?

A really lovely card on this post BTW and nice shape.
