Green

Good morning and a happy weekend to you!  Today sees the start of a new challenge at Card Makin' Mamas and the theme this week is Green!  Here is my card:


We are sponsored this week by the fabulous Simply Betty Stamps and I was lucky enough to have my choice of stamp so I went with this cutie called Beauty Spa Rio!  I have coloured her with Copics and paper pieced the chair and pouffe.  The papers are Nitwit Bit O Blarney papers.  Quite a simply layout I thought the image was enough so I just added a computer generated sentiment, gems from stash and Lil' Inker bow - jobs done!  Please pop over to Card Makin' Mamas and see what the rest of the DT have done!

Challenges I'd like to enter:

Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Sandy's Crafty Creations - Anything Goes with Green
Digi Haven - Green

Thank you for visiting me today I really appreciate it, see you Monday and take care! xx
