Sunshine of Smiles and New Challenge Blog

Hiya Peeps,

Hope your enjoying your weekend.  I have some more exciting news for you..... I have been asked by Donna to join the design team for Bearly Mine Designs with a new challenge blog starting in January, woo hoo!  I already have volume I so you would of seen Bearly Mine Papers already used on my blog but even more popped into my mail box yesterday so I have made a card to show off these beautiful papers, but before I do, let me introduce you to the team:-

Donna (the boss)
Amy (DT Co-ordinator)
Judith aka Bella
Shirley
Doreen
Sarah
Marie
Donna
Vix
Tracy
Gina
Anne

I have used the Vintage papers from Bearly Mine available HERE, aren't they gorgeous. 


 I actually coloured this gorgeous Hanglar stamp a couple of evenings ago but it has still taken me a couple of hours to put the card together. 



I have coloured her using copic markers and prisma  pencils and a combination of pencils and chalk for the sky and ground.

Materials Used:-
Bearly Mine Papers
Bazill cardstock
Panels are machine stitched
Nesties
Sentiment LOTV
Quickutz Tab on the side
Brads, Pearls, Doily, Ribbon, RiffRaff from stash

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-
Paper Romance - Lots of whatever you like (pink)
Crazy for Challenges - Square Cards
Sweet Stampin - Photo Inspiration (I have taken the pink)
PaperPlay - Circles
Raise the Bar - Curves
The Crafty Pad - Stitching
A spoonful of sugar - Relish to Embellish
Incy Wincy - Anything Goes
