Farm fresh !

Hello again I am back with another card that I made last night for a few challenges. If you read my post earlier you will know just how much fun I had last night - it was so nice to take some time to play along just for the fun of it - no DT projects in sight !!

I made time for this lovely sketch this week from the sweet Sunday sketch challenge

I had a birthday card to make for my niece who turns 8 later this week so I even had an excuse to play along !

I have used papers from my new Authentique splendid paper stack and a gorgeous (but quite old !) greeting farm stamp. My neice is a bit of tomboy so this image is just perfect.

I coloured it with my prisma pencils, I just love colouring with them I find it so relaxing - I have always loved colouring and as a child would spend hours with my crayons and colouring book. Of course back then it wasn't prisma's but crayola's ! I can still remember the thrill when I got a brand new pack of crayola's and I still love buying them for my kids !

I used a MS flower border punch and my crealies butterfly die and added some gems, seam binding and a button threaded with twine.
A sentiment banner completes the card and for this I used a clear stamp from HOTP.

I would also like to add my card to the following challenges;

Anyone for Anya ? - 3 papers, 2 embellishments (button & butterfly) & 1 image.
The ribbon reel challenge - New yr's resolution (mine is to use my scraps - used scraps from this card for my butterfly), ribbon (seam binding) & a button
Stamptacular Sunday challenge - Diamonds or pearls ? I have used diamonds on my butterfly but I have to say I prefer pearls although I do love both (esp the real thing - well we all love a bit of bling don't we girls !!)
CES challenges - Check it out !
365 cards - Simply stated - use a 2 word sentiment.

Thanks for visiting today hope you enjoy the rest of your day x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo
