Thank you all so very very much !! x

Today's card is a Thank you card made specifically to enter some Blog Challenge's and to say 
 to all you lovely ladies for following my "baby" blog !!
Many thanks also to Crafteezee aka Tracy for sending me the Copic Air Brush System Candy I won last week. (Yippee!! New toy to play with!!)

The ladies over at Crafty Ribbons have an "easel card" for this weeks challenge so that's where my cards journey began. 
I used double sided blue card for the base at 7x7", having taken my colour inspiration from the beautiful blue  and pink picture featured in  The Shabby Tea Room challenge. I  used the lay out over at The Sweet Stop using white and pink patterned  paper with more of the blue to create all their lovely layers. I used Distress Inks in Faded Jeans and Victorian velvet to soften the edges and
I'm hoping my card also meets the remit for Truly Scrumptious "Pretty in Pink" and Paper Shelter's "Vintage/Shabby"

(I found it really difficult to do the card justice in my photographs as there is just sooo much going on lol)

I am head over heels in love with "Fran-age" and have covered parts of the base and layers and most of the die cuts in the various vintage enamels, I sneaked a little lilac tinsel and the taupe fragments in too .

Hot Shot Craft features 
"Die Cuts" in their current challenge and Marianne's Design Diva's are looking for "Wings and Things" so I've added lots along with some "Swirls and Flourishes" inspired by Fussy and Fancy.
Whimsy Stamps are playing "Bingo" and I opted for "Pearls, Ribbon and White" to complete their challenge.

I cut my teapot on my Cricut (cause I just could'nt leave him out lol!!) and coloured the Lili of the Valley girls enjoying a gossip with my Promarker's. - (First time I've been brave enough to take a close up -urm!!) I  have some fabulous gold mesh,  ribbon, some netting and a fran-taged doily surrounding it along with tiny punched butterflies, dragonflies and leaves.
I have really enjoyed making this card and letting my imagination run riot !! Hope you all like it too!!
Happy Days x x x
