Crafts and Me Challenge - 1 February 2012

Over at the Crafts and Me Challenge this time the challenge is "time to brighten your day".  Last year and again this year I am determined to use the paper pads I have won, bought or been given for my birthday/Christmas and I am still doing well with this.  For this card I have used my basic Grey pad Lime Rickey.  The papers are a lot brighter than I normally use but then with the weather like it is we need a bit of cheering up.  For my card I have used a Saturated Canary image called "Thank You".  I have coloured the image with Promarkers.  I then used a Spellbinders die to cut around the image but kept the die in and chalked around the edge with shimmery chalks.  I have cut some flower shapes out from a book and inked with Tim Holtz's Spiced Marmalade and Shabby Shutters distress ink pads.  I have added flower brads to hold the flowers together.  The card has been finished off with some raffia ribbon, Craftwork Cards sentiment, buttons, spotty ribbon, memory wire, bow and die-cut butterflies which I have sanded.
