Laura and Henri - Sarah Kay

Finally I get to post a card:).... it's been a busy week with DT cards and commissions.
Can I start by saying welcome to my new followers your support and comments are greatly appreciated.
Today's card is from a stamp I bought a couple of months ago and finally got to ink it up. It features a Sarah Kay image that I think is really cute.


I cut them with Spellbinders Grand labels 23 and made a faux nestie to frame them. My backing papers are Wild Rose Studios and from my stash. Flowers are from WOC. Leaves are a crealie die and butterfly is a Cheery Lynn. Lace and pearls from my stash.



They are coloured as always with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils, and I added Distress Ink to the edges.


I added stickles to the butterfly and went with the trend and added platinum liquid pearls to add a little more depth to the image.


I am entering the following challenges:-


Thank you so much for looking. There will be a few more cards this week.

Don't know what to say now! (with my tongue firmly in cheek!!), I'd hate to put the kybosh on any more of your entries!!
You know I think all your cards are awesome and I will always tell you so, i am one of your biggest fans and love everything you do. Talking of which, this card is stunning, really love the way you have used the nestie and the faux one (or 'fauks' as Dawn Bibby used to say when she was on QVC), the little pearls in threes are such a great idea, I will deffo be nicking that one! Beautifully coloured as always and the colours of your fowers really make the image pop.
Be prepared now you are on a DT (plus having to do commissions too!), you will get very few chances to actually use the stamps you have bought. I got a tonne of them just before joining Squigglefly and Kenny K and I literally have no clue when I will every get to show them some ink!! I'm not grumbling though because I get to use some stunning images so it's a bit of a win-win really.
Hope you are okay and well done for being the only one to get the take that lyrics - I just knew you were a kindred spirit in the 'that' fanworld, best boy(man)band EVER.
See you on my blog sometime,
Andy
