CES Challenges DT Card

Good all my lovelies how are you all? We have sunshine today wooooo hooooo ssshhhhh tho dont shout too loud you might scare it away again.
Well its Saturday & its a new challenge over at CES Challenges & this is our very last challenge as you know CES is closing its doors so we decided to close the challenge blog too. So as our last challenge we have an easy peasy one for you & 3 prizes so pop on over to check it out.
ANYTHING GOES
I made a card for a lovely lady, the image I coloured up ages ago & found it.
 I've used Prima 'Printery' papers & inked the edges with vintage photo & matted onto dark brown card. I've gone kinda mono on this one.


The flower I crocheted myself eons ago & found my little stash the other day. Attached a button to the middle. Underneath is a Memory Box 'Elegant Scroll' die-cut.

I made a bow with brown seam binding attached a button & Bakers Twine & a gorgeous
 'Clock Charm' which I totally forgot about I'm so ashamed to say.

Added lace & more seam binding from my stash & cream pearls.

The image is of course from Darcy's Diaries , this is number 015 'Beach Babe' but I think of her as she is going shopping @Time for shopping' lol. She was printed onto smooth Kraft card & coloured with prisma pencils I also added Glossy Accents to her glasses. I fussy cut her then mounted her onto Tim Holtz clock.


The 6x6 Pointed Petal Card Blank, Papers & Bakers Twine were all from Crafty Emma's Store.
Clock Charm & Elegant Scroll die & Glossy Accents are from My Crafty Heart
Image is from Darcy's Diaries
everything else is from my stash.

Well thats it from me I'm off to try catch up with you all before my gorgeous grand-daughter comes. Sorry I didnt yesterday the only time I used my laptop was to do the post & to order some Copics refills from Cult Pens. I ordered them yesterday afternoon & they were here this morning how blinking fantastic is that. Best shop for pens I wouldnt go anywhere else.
Thank you so much for stopping by it means the world to me mmwah.

Challenges I'm Entering............
