Happileigh Scrappin' #6

Hello everybody peeps. It's Monday and that means it is time for another challenge at Happileigh Scrappin'.

Thanks very much to everyone who joined in with the blog hop last week. It was a great way for you to meet us the new Design Team and it was lovely to receive such warm comments from you.

Leigh has changed the challenge slightly so it is easier for people to enter.

The challenge rules are changing.
You may now use any image from any artist to enter in the challenge. (Inappropriate images will be withdrawn)
You will receive 1 entry point for your entry.
If you use a Happileigh Scrappin' image you will receive an extra entry point.
The winners will now be chosen randomly.
There will still be 1st, 2nd and 3rd place drawings.

Leigh has posted a photo up on the challenge as an inspiration. I hope we will see more people entering the challenges. Leigh is very generous with her freebies and her designs are lovely to work with so hop on over and join in the fun :)

My card was made with the Kasey Elbows on Pillow image and I have used Promarkers to colour her. It was a very rare occasion for me in that I had coloured the image before I chose the paper. Very unusual for me I went straight to this paper and it was a perfect match. Don't you just love it when that happens? I used the latest sketch #48 over at Truly Scrumptious for the layout. She's not dreaming of summer but definitely thinking of someone :)

The base card is a scalloped edge K & Co which has glitter spots and lines on it. It is very feint in the photo but much more visible in the flesh. The backing paper is a magazine freebie by Bo Bunny and the 'Thinking of You' sentiment vellum is another hoarded item from Craftwork Cards. I had a great value pack of vellum from them years ago in the sale and have hardly used any. In the spirit of my New Years Resolution I am cracking open that stash.

The ribbon and bow are Papermania, the turquoise ribbon was just a scrap in my stash, the pearls are by Kanban from a QVC kit and the little butterfly was on a piece of kids jewellery from Claire's Accessories. I love having a mooch in their sales as you can sometimes get some smashing charms for pennies. They sell their broken jewellery off in bargain bins and they are great for cardmaking.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges :-
