Blessed: Crafts and Me Guest Designer!!

Hi everyone! Today I have some exciting news...I have been asked to be a guest designer over at Crafts and Me for the next fortnight! Woohoo! If you haven't checked out their stuff then you need to pop over...they have the most beautiful and whimsical stamps and digis. Absolutely gorgeous to colour up :)

This week's challenge is Spring Airy Colours, and I have used the beautiful Blessed digi on my card. I love how cute she is! :D



The papers are one of my fave new sets...These Days by Kaisercraft which you can purchase over at Craft-A-Lot. They remind me of spring...when winter is slowly leaving and all of the flowers start to pop out :) I have mixed these in with some papers from My Mind's Eye Portobello Road - another of my faves!  I have added some gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Prima, a doily, some twine, and some hearts which I cut out of Kraft card and embossed them with my new die cutter! woohoo! (more about this later LOL!)



I recently stumbled upon a new shop called Make it Crafty. I have also admired their beautiful images and recently purchased some of their chipboard embellishments. These are AMAZING! I 'painted' some flourishes with my Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink and added them in there.



I coloured Blessed using copic markers. Here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E50, E53, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E13, E15, E18
Dress: B00, B02, B12
Pink Sash: R00, R11, R20

Challenges that I am entering with this card:

Make it Monday - Linky Party
Celebrate the Occasion - Welcome Spring
My Time to Craft Challenge - Doilies and Flowers
The Outlawz - Colour Challenge (There is a doily there behind my kraft oval :)
Papertake Weekly - Bingo (Gems, Die Cuts, Flowers)



Thanks for stopping by! :)
