A Few More Challenges

Evening all, I've only managed to get one card done today - I'm still in the process of getting my final draft Wedding Samples ready to send out to the bride. She's been over for her second and final 'chat' and I now have material samples and more specific details of what she wants, I've just got to put a few together for her to make her final decision! .....................and I'd love to do this full time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On to todays card!

This card I'm entering for 4 challenges:

Mo's Digital Pencil (DP2) - image and shades of blue & Purple.
Simon Says Challenge - 'Punch it'
Sketch Saturday - Sketch
Raise the Bar - Gift

The image is good old faithful Kai, from Mo Manning. I just love this gorgeous image more each time I use it :)
The challenge over on the DP2 blog was a colour combination, they were specific colours but you could use the nearest you have.
SSC 'Punch it' was fulfilled using MS Doily Lace punch and improvising with a circle punch for the corner details!
The sketch from the SS blog is great - I've turned it so the centre panel is running top to bottom.
And finally Raise The Bar - For their 2nd challenge they have asked we use something that was given as a gift. My gift is the sentiment. It's from a Die Cut set from the Daisy & Dandelion range. The set was given to me as part of my craft allowance for Christmas!!!

My Candy announcement is looming! My blog was 1 year old last week so I think I'll combine my Bolgaversary with my Wedding Anniversary on 21st Feb!

Thanks so much for popping over to pay me a visit - I really enjoy reading all of your comments :)
See you soon,
