Duck Duck Goose - Saturated Canary

Good evening everyone. Thank you all for the lovely comments you left on my last card. I actually won with it at the Papercraft Star challenge, but have to admit there were only 4 entries. This site offers downloads as prizes from The House Across the Bay. I don't know if you have been to this site but it offers some really different backing papers and elements, it's really worth a look and they have a summer sale on atm.

Onto today's card which is another from Saturated Canary that I bought a while ago.

She is cut with Spellbinders Grand Ovals and Scalloped Ovals. The backing paper is from Joanna Sheens 'Daisy and Friends' cd. I added a Magnolia fence, memory box spring border and Whimsy corners. Gems are from my stash.

She is coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils. I added distress ink to her background, stickles to the flowers and liquid pearls to highlight.

The inside reflects the front.

I am entering the following challenges :-

Thank you so much for looking

Another Eileen masterpiece! You keep coming up with these SatCan images that I have never even seen before, I love what you have done on the fence as well,a trick I will definately be stealing as it now has a lovely feeling of depth and dimension, brilliant. Hope your week has been okay so far, mine's been very up and down, going to pick up my very first sick note tomorrow, a novelty for me!!
Speak soon, take care

I say a win is a win!! This card is so darn cute with the outdoor theme you've created. The die cut fence and flower border combined with the papers is just perfection. And of course your coloring is off the charts with this cutie.
