Ooohhh!! new challenge blog!!!

I am such a mix of excited and nervous!!!
I have spent the last couple of weeks playing around making a challenge blog for Lily-boo's boutique and tonight it is up and running!! yey!!!!

This is the card I made (using Sams super cute freebie that is on the challenge blog!!).
The challenge was to make a new home card using a recipe from the kitchen of Enfys!! the recipe was 2 ribbons,3 flowers and 4 brads.
Here's what I came up with using a wiper card tutorial that I found on splitcoast stampers site.

The freebie image is so cute ( thanks Sam!!!). I coloured it using my copic ciao's and mounted it on a cuttlebugged birds and swirls (...bought for me by my big sis!!) background that I had inked over. I added my 3 paper roses and used 4 heart brads to attch the house to the card. My 2 ribbons are a little hard to see, one is a pale blue organza and the other is a pale blue thin satin ribbon on top of the organza one.

Here is a link to the challenge site Lily-boo too!! please pop over and take part!!! have a noseyat the DT's cards, they are amazing.

This is the second swiper card I have made, the first one I will post tomorrow, it was my happy mail to my lovely friend michelle.

Thankyou for popping in, I am off to get a cuppa now!!
