Hey Girlfriend

The sun is shining and I am feeling orange! It seems to be the colour I am drawn to at the moment - not sure what that says about me!
Here's a card I made for a friend's birthday.


This is another stamp from my new fav. set of Kanban Damask Divas. It took me ages to colour this and I don't think the shading is quite right, but I am still pretty pleased with the overall look. 
I also discovered that, instead of trying to chalk/ink the edges of my paper with my limited supplies, I could just use a Copic. You all knew this, right?? I know, I am a bit slow. So , that's what I did on the text paper,
not sure if the camera really picks it up.
I also added a few little crystal to her necklace.

Challenges - 
Craft Your Days Away -  I followed the great sketch from Joanne.
Papertake - Anything Goes (optional extra of 'something old' )
Top Tip - Favourites. My new favourite is the stamp, but my all time favourite has to be ribbon. I LOVE ribbon. My budget won't stretch to new supplies right now, but I do spend hours drooling over online ribbon stores.  :D)
Digital Tuesday - Celebrations, plus a Blog Hop, with the chance to win some fabulous goodies.


Supplies
Stamp - Kanban, Damaask Divas, Let's Go Shopping - coloured with Copics.
DP - My Mind's Eye, Stella and Rose.        Ribbon and card candy from my stash.
Tiny crystal gems (on her necklace)
