New challenge at ABC Challenges

Hi all on another glorious sunny day on the South Coast.  Hasn't it been fantastic hope it lasts into the kiddies summer holidays. 

Anyway, its the 15th today so that means its another challenge time over at ABC Challenges and I've popped on to show you my DT card.  We are on the letter 'R' so the new challenge is 'R for Roses are Red' so that's flowers and/or the colour red.  We are sponsored by the fabulous Bugaboo and I've used one of their fabulous images and I've opted to use both flowers and the colour red, albeit a deep burgundy.  I've made one of my most favourite card types and that's a criss cross card, love them and so easy.   Why not pop over and take a peek at my teamies creations they're all so gorgeous and an eyeful of inspiration for you.
The image has been coloured using my Prismacolor pencils blended with Sansador and dirtied up using Tim Holtz 'walnut stain' distress ink.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts but everything else I had in my stash.  The papers are gorgeous and were a freebie download which I've had for a while when I find the link I'll update my post.

Okay that's it for today no more waffle from me.   I'm up nice and early so I'm off now to get packed lunches and kiddies ready for school. 

I hope you are having gorgeous sunshine where you are.  Catch up with you soon.

Take care,

  4. A gorgeous card Ann-Marie.
    I always love to see a criss cross card and I did make one...once.
    But I managed to stick it down wrong and the insert was stuck inside!!

    Those papers are so beautiful and go perfectly with the image and embellies.

    Big hugs
