Maddy's Card

Hello there - well I'm managing to make an early post today - so much to do though so mustn't prattle on for too long!

My card for today - well I made it in my attic last night - that's my craft room - I don't just enjoy crafting in weird places you know!!!! It came together gradually shall we say and I'm finally quite happy with it. What do you think?

I've used an LOTV image and the sketch from this week's Lili's little Fairies that I've turned on its side. I've coloured the image with promarkers and used a spellbinders nestability die and a me to you sentiment. The ribbons and blooms came from two different kits from Duck pond crafts. The papers were from my stash. I think it all came together when I put the faux stitching detail in - I don't know why it worked but I think it did!

I'd like to enter this colourful card into the following challenges:
Lili's Little Fairies: Sketch
Passion for promarkers: Cut it out
Do crafts Creativity Club blog; N
Crafty Anne' Stitching challenge - faux or real.

As I said I've got lots to get on with - looking forward to the LEJ Designs challenge blog going live tomorrow - and the Mishelflo challenge blog too!

See you then!
