Close Your Eyes

Good evening everyone.  I've had a great day today. I went to the Papercraft show at Gateshead, and bought a lot of new goodies :), some of which I've used on my latest card.  It's a LOTV stamp 'Close your eyes'.

I have used Spellbinders Circles and Lacey Circles, Marianne creatables die and Whimsy corner dies. Flowers from WOC and ribbon gems and pearls from my stash. The sentiment is a Wild Rose Studio 'Birthday Circle'.

A side view. The backing papers are from Nitwits.

I have coloured as usual with Promarkers, Flexmarkers and Prisma pencils, and added distress ink to the edges.

The inside reflect the front.

I am entering Lili's Little Fairies challenge 'Diamonds and Pearls'My Mum's Craftshop challenge #53 'Favourite Song/Movie' and the song is 'Young Love', and Wild Orchid challenge 'Spring is in the air'.

Thanks for looking

So fun to get out among other crafters and shop! Glad you had the opportunity. This card is precious! I so admire your coloring as usual, I'm especially focused on the girls little sweater and dress set. I'm also noticing all of your challenge wins on your side bar! Well done, but it doesn't surprise me. You are extremely talented!

Thanks Lorraine wonderful comment.... erm could it be because it's purple? lol. I spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much again. I took £75 in cash and said I wasn't spending any more than that. Still managed to get my card out 4 times :(.... but that' the joy of not having anyone check on my spending. My friend is just going to blend her stash into her craft stock :)
