Longing for some sunshine

It's Saturday and that means a brand new challenge at Totally Gorjuss where we have a lovely sketch for you this week. We are sponsored by Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher. Shame I can't win. However I was chosen as the winner at Emma's monthly challenge and won a £10 voucher for Crafter's Companion. That was spent as soon as I got the code, 2 packs of lovely Vintage flower power Core'dinations coming my way. Yummy. £11.99 per pack or two for £12.99. That's a no brainer isn't it.

I have teamed this gorgeous Kraftin' Kimmie girl, which has been coloured with Promarkers, with MME Blink of a Eye papers. I added some vintage ribbon, MS cherish border punch, Sizzix die cut scrolls, Marianne die cut flowers, mulberry flowers from Michaels and some pearls. The die cut behind the bottom flower is actually a Memory Box buckle die but I thought I would try it used this way and I am liking the result.

Gorgeous card, love the fab image and bright colours. Fab funky papers and love the swirls and flowers. Just love what you have done with the MB Die, I have just been given this as a get well gift and thats a fab idea of how to use it. Also wanted to say thank you for my gorgeous get well card, love the image and papers and if people think your colouring looks fab on the computer it looks so much more stunning in real life.
