I had doubts about whether this card would come to fruition - I've known what I wanted to do for this Cute Daisy May Challenge which is Flowers and Ribbon ever since I saw this image but struggled for time all last week then developed a yukky head cold on Friday and spent Saturday feeling like I was trying to trudge through porridge. I got here in the end though and I'm pleased with the result. Several other challenges have inspired me too so I'll let you know what they are as I go along starting first of all with this lovely and unusual sketch from Friday Sketchers. When I first saw it, I wasn't too sure but I love how it makes the image really take centre stage. I took the colour scheme from Charisma Cardz which is Pink Brown Cream Toffee and Cute Card Thursday and Fussy and Fancy Friday both want us to use something new, which in my case is the Cute Daisy May image. The Pink Elephant is celebrating Birthdays and last but certainly not least, Rainbow Lady is urging us all to recyle this week and the ribbon I've used on here is from a box of chocolates.
I'm still keeping up with using up some of my humungous stash of card and papers - the main pink paper I've had for so long that I can't remember just how long and the two brown pieces are my own but are scraps I'm using up.
Daisy has been added digitally to one of my own frames - it just seemed perfect for her showing off her pretty dress, and I've decoupaged the flowers. I've used both inktense pencils and twinkling H2Os to colour the image.
I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge at CDM, we love to visit your blogs to see your entries and you could be in with a chance of winning a blinkie for your blog and a sheet of images of your choice.
