Hello You

Phew...eventually finished....I have been working on this most of the day and now that it's later in the day not sure if the colour is ok on the camera...might need to do some more pictures but I have taken a few of this one. Well I had started making this card this morning but I couldn't quite decide which image to use as I wanted to enter it in a few challenges...I hope I have met the requirements on each of them....well anyway as I was saying...couldn't decide what image, then the postie came and I found a little package for me...I thought I haven't ordered anything else...yet so what could it good friend Lyndsey sent me this Mo Manning stamp for my birthday...thanks so much Linds..mwah...isn't she kind?? Check her new vamped blog out here. I have used Crate Papers - Paper doll collection..which I love and you can get them at Quixotic Paperie, I punched the oval for the message to layer onto...oh and my fav...I punched/cut the flowers from my new sizzix 3 flowers die which I bought from Sir Stampalot...all you do is roll them to the required size and fix them with glue...oh I so love them.....I coloured the image with my copics and layered it onto a scalloped circle which I made with the Stampin Up slit punch as I don't have a big scallop circle punch...but that's fine cos I have got the knack of using the slit punch to do scallops...

Now onto the inside....I also used the same Crate Paper and punched out 4 giant scallops and layered them...I added another message so that the card will prop up. I followed the sketch over at Totally Gorjuss but I didn't know how to adapt it for the inside so the sketch is for the front...did my own thing inside...hope that's ok.

Thought I would add another view..please do no look at the mess in the background....I cannot believe how much of a mess this card has caused!!

Hi Fi

Not the best of weather for taking piccis of cards is it, guess it can only get better.

But the colours look pretty good even of you are not happy with them. Super roses as well.

Thank you for sharing with us at Stampalot Challenge this month and good luck.

Cute card! I love the roses and those big scallops. On cloudy days or in the evening, I use an Ott light for taking pictures. It has a daylight spectrum, so the colors come out true to life. Thanks for joining us in Mo's Challenge this week.
