Add some Metal - Stampin for the Weekend Challenge

Hello again everyone, I said I'd be back!!
This is my second post for today if you would like to see my Ladybug Crafts DT card please scroll down.

Today is also the start of a new challenge over at Stampin' for the Weekend .
Our theme for the next 2 weeks is 

Use some Metal

Our sponsor is the wonderful Saturated Canary
I was lucky enough to win a Saturated Canary voucher a couple of months ago and this is one of the images I chose. I love the way she her hair and it is so nice to see girly images with glasses I think.
My metal corner and charm have been coloured with brown promarkers to try match them with the other colours.


Items Used:
Digi stamp ~ Saturated Canary Vintage Violet coloured with Promarkers
Stamp (around edge of image) Kanban Spring Meadow
Papers ~ First Edition Isabelle
Kraft Card ~ Papermania
Memory Box Cherry Blosson Die
Craftwork cards sentiment
Rezin flower from MCH
Charm and metal corner from stash

If you pop over to the Stampin' for the Weekend you will see the stunning creations made by the rest of the design team, they really are inspiring.


I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Saturated Canary - Colour inspiration ( use at least 3 colours from those shown on the blog)
Sweet Stampin' - Ribbon
Inky Impressions - Bingo (flowers/Kraft/ Die)
Crafts and Me - Favourite Embellishments - Ribbon and die cut flowers
Inky Chicks - Becky's Bingo Grid (Ribbon/ Sentiment/Flowers)
Love to Create - Anything Goes with a Sentiment
Crafty Ribbons - Anything Goes with Ribbon

Well, that is it from me for today. Thanks again for stopping to look at my blog, it means so much to me.
I hope you all have a good day. Bye for now, 
Hugs to you all

Sue
