Crafts and Me Challenge - Wednesday 2 May 2012

This card has been sat for over a day waiting to be posted on my blog.  Yesterday lunchtime I was using our computer when you couldn't get any drop-down menus to save etc.  I shouted for our in-house IT support aka my eldest son who is doing an IT degree.  He tried many things but in the end everything had to be taken off the computer and put back on.  He worked solidly on it until 11.30pm last night and again this morning from early to 1.30pm and hopefully it's all fixed.  At the same time he was also trying to do an assignment - that's what you call multi-tasking.  Fingers crossed it stays good and behaves itself.
For my card I have used a Crafts and Me stamp by Jasmine Beckett-Griffith called "The Scarlet Sofa".  When I went to the Stamperama event a few months back this was one of the stamps I had to have as I had always wanted a chaise longue since I was little!!!  I have coloured the image with my Promarkers.  My favourite colour scheme is purple, purple and more purple and the Crafts and Me Challenge this week wanted your favourite colour combo so seeing as I make so many purple cards I went for my close second which is blue and brown.  The backing papers are all from my stash.  I have used a Marianne Designs die for the image to sit on top.  I have added some lace, My Craft Studio (MCS) Click-Print-Go flowers which I have cut out and edged with a brown chalk ink pad, the centres of the flowers are peel-offs, Craftwork Cards sentiment and some pearls.
