Cute Card Thursday # 153, Lily of the Valley # 85, Pollycraft Monday # 82, Flutter By Wednesday # 144 and Papertake Weekly

Concert went well last night.  Twenty Twenty the support band were very good and Shannon thoroughly enjoyed them.  She is into a lot of up and coming bands and this is one of them.  Was over the moon when she heard they were supporting The Saturdays as they are not really her thing but was going for Hollie and Sophie.  They got to meet them afterwards which was exciting for them.  As for The Saturdays, they were better than I thought as I expected to be bored.  Not into girl bands and divas. The only downside to them was Frankie was sick and didn't perform so there was only four of them.  Sophie was disappointed as this would be her favourite in the band.  However, they announced they are coming back in December, so guess who wants tickets.

Hollie with Twenty Twenty.  She wanted a photograph by herself.

Anyway enough about last night and onto my card:-

I am entering my card into five challenges:-

Cute Card Thursday # 153 - A Sketch by Christine
Lily of the Valley # 85 - Circles plus LOTV image
Pollycraft Monday # 82 - Three circles on card.  Hope the scalloped circle counts
Flutter By Wednesday # 144 - Open theme plus fairy, angel, butterfly.  I choose a fairy
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes plus something old.  K & Co papers

Sometimes I think the inside looks better than the outside.  Wanted to use this sketch, had papers and image picked but it just didn't come together the way I had hoped.  The image didn't look right on white cardstock against these papers, so decided to cute the image out and back it onto purple.  Don't think the image is one for cutting out, or maybe i just haven't mastered it yet. Also had no ribbon that matched so that is why I used the Martha Stewart border punch.

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Paper Mill
Patterned Papers - K & Co
Image - LOTV
Coloured with Distress Inks
Kars Glitter Glue
Gems - these are new ones i got which are for decorating your mobile, think they will work ok and they are cheaper
Woodware Punch
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Martha Stewart Branch Punch
The larger circle is cut with the circuit as my circle cutter isn't cutting again.  The cartridge belongs to my aunt and I keep meaning to give it back, lucky I didn't as none of my cartridges has circles on them or i wouldn't have been able to finish the card.

Thanks for popping by and visiting and all comments are very much appreciated.  Enjoy the rest of your day.
