Floating Away

Happy Wednesday all!  Well we are still being battered by rain here in Blackpool bring on the hosepipe ban!! I have still not made my card for my Aunt's birthday and I really only have today and tomorrow to do it in, I have made the box for it though lol!!  I have made a pile of boxes today as I tend to just have a mad spurt on them and make a load at once.

Today's card is made using a cute little digital image from Whimsy Stamps called Floating Away.  I made it using the colours for the challenge in The Shabby Tea Room Challenge:

The image that was used for the colour challenge is this one:

You also had to add a doily.  I have used Raspberry Road and Nitwits digital papers and Coredinations cardstock.  As the cup had some gold in it I used some gold Embossing Powder on the edges of the flower but it really hasn't shown up that well on this picture lol!  I coloured the pearls myself with Copics to match the papers and I also lightly coloured the image with my Copics.  Added a touch of Stickles to the dandelion spores and the lace is from a local haberdashery shop - it is so pretty I almost cried when I cut into it!!  Apart from the Shabby Tea Room Challenge I would like to enter the following challenges:

Crafts and Me Challenge - Shades of Spring
Penny's Paper Crafty Challenge - Anything Goes
The Sisterhood of Crafters - Use a Digital Stamp
Crafty Sentiments - Use two Designer Papers
Stamp N Doodle - Lace and Flowers
Victorine Stamps - Use Lace
Seems a Little Sketchy - Sketch
One Stitch at a Time - Use a Digi or Don't
Robyn's Fetish - Pretty in Pink

That's it for me off to find some inspiration for a 90th birthday card!! Thanks for looking, take care xx
