Make a Wish

Good morning everyone - did you get any snow?  Hope you are all tucked up nice and warm lol!

Here is a card I made yesterday:

For this card I followed a sketch over at Card Patterns. I have used another cute digi image from Wee Stamps and coloured her with Copics and Prisma Pencils.  The papers are by Prima called Madeline.  I have used a Cheery Lynn die to cut out the doily behind the image - not sure if you can tell its a doily in the picture but it is!! I have used my Tonic border punch for the border and Spellbinders for the sentiment which is a digi by Crafty Sentiments. The wee butterflies are made using my Woodware punch and I have embossed them and the corner filigree with my new Aged Aqua Embossing Enamel by Stampendous (lush wish I'd got more at the NEC!!). The cameo, flowers and corner are all from Wild Orchid Crafts and ribbon is from stash.  I would like to enter the following challenges:

Card Patterns - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Kaboodle Doodles - Anything but a Rectangle
There She Goes - Metal Embellishments
The Corrosive Challenge - Heavy Metal
One Stitch at  a Time - New (Image and Embossing Powder and Cameo)
Di's Digi Designs - Emboss It (Butterflies and Corner Filigree)
Crafty Catz - Use a Digi
Phindy's Place - Ribbon
Wags 'n Whiskers - Say it with Flowers

I wish that champagne glass was full hehe!! Or maybe it was when I started taking the picture - lol!!  Anyway that's it for me we are out for lunch with my husband's grandchildren today and then they are back here for Wii playing (Max) and card making (Emma)!!  Thanks for looking today and take care xx
