LEJ Designs DT card: Challenge 1

Morning all! I'm setting this blog post to happen tomorrow morning when lejdesignschallengeblog goes Live.  Its the first week of the challenge so its an Anything goes challenge to get you all started. There are two prizes up for grabs - some images from LEJ Designs and an adhesive pack kindly donated by sponsor Mishelflo Challenge Blog here - which also launches on 1st May. This is the card I've made using one of the very talented Lyndsay's designs called Suzejo and her worms. You can buy the image at lejdesigns - pop over and have a browse!

Now my card:

I've called this one Mucky Kid because the image just reminded me of that old song from the sixties or seventies - I think it was Cilla Black - 'Oh you are a mucky Kid - dirty as a dustbin lid!!!!' My mum and dad used to sing it to me quite a lot when I was young - because I always was up to my eyes in mud!!!!
Anyway back to the card - the papers are from the current simply cards and papercraft, the flowers are prima flowers and the ribbon came from duck pond crafts ribbon and blooms kit. The buttons are from my stash. I've used a spellbinders die to cut out my suzejo image and coloured her with promarkers.

She is a DT card but I'd like to enter my mucky kid into the challenge over at Divas by design - Buttons and bows

Pop along to LEJ Designs challenge blog and join in the fun! There are prizes - and I think I mentioned its an Anything goes theme this week.
