A few Challenges :)

Morning all :) Is it nice to see the white stuff melt?...................I'm sure there's plenty of you that think so, but I don't :(
............................We didn't have much :(

On to my first card of the weekend - I plan a crafty catch-up weekend in my house, so I hope no-one here wants to eat!

I'm entering this card for 3 challenges:

Stampin' for the Weekend - Sketch
Simon Says Challenge - Shabby Chic
Raise The Bar (1st Challenge) - Debut

I've elongated Fiona's Sketch from SFW but it's still recognisable, well I hope Fiona thinks so anyway!
My 'Shabby Chic' for SSC is debatable!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm still not able to get the stunning results that you can see on their DT cards! If any of you have seen my version of 'Distressing' you'll know what I'm talking about...................My cards aren't distressed they're traumatised!
Finally RTB have announced their 1st weekly challenge - Debut. This gorgeous Inky Impressions stamp has been in my stash for at least 6 months without being touched - tut, tut!
The Backing Paper is from DCWV 'Kids' stack, I've used Promarkers to colour 'Lili's Birthday Cake' image. CB embossing folder used on some Gemstones and then sanded and that gorgeous ribbon is from my local haberdashery.

Thanks for popping over and paying me a visit - I just wish it wasn't a 'virtual visit' and we could've had a chat over coffee!
