Craft Us Crazy # 7, Dream Valley # 6, Pollycraft Monday # 91, Papertake Weekly and Sketch Saturday # 153

Just a quick post tonight as I am watching the football match.  At the minute it is two nil to Man United.  What a final it will be if it is Man United and Barcelona. Knew I wouldn't be able to craft tonight so made this card earlier today after doing a lot of bookwork for hubby as it is the vat quarter and end of year accounts.

I am entering my card into five challenges:-

Craft Us Crazy # 7 - Flowers or Mothers Day - (went for flowers - hope the flowers on the papers and image and new spellbinder die count)
Dream Valley # 6 - Flowers - (again hope flowers on papers and image and spellbinder die count)
Pollycraft Monday # 91 - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday # 153 - Follow Sketch

Sorry for the poor quality of the photos, think I left it too late to take the photo.  Have put them on as large size as Katina asked me to do this.  Not sure about the size as I think a lot more of my flaws will show up.

Cardblank - Craftwork Cards
Cardstock - Bazzill
Patterned Paper - My Minds Eye (free with magazine)
Pearls - Mei Flower
Image - Stampavie - Sarah Kay
Coloured with Distress Inks
Spellbinders - Flower Doily and Motifs Die
Ribbon - Amercian Crafts

Sponged around the image in blue distress ink to soften it a little and quite like the effect.

Thanks for popping by, hope you are still enjoying this gorgeous weather although we have rain forecast for tomorrow.  Off to watch the second half of the match and then collect Shannon from work at 9.30pm.

Hi Donna, gorgeous card, have you got a day light lamp? if so put your card near that for taking your photo's it should bnot be as hard for you then, also do you have picassa? it helps with light, shadows etc, I also find moving my camera up closer to the card does help even if it does show my flaws more lol, hope I've not offended you by asking, hugs Liz xx

i adore Sarah Kay and this card is so beautiful! I love your colours and papers, they look so good! Thanks for joining in at Dream Valley Challenges!

Man U vs Barca is either going to be magical or boring (if both sides decide 1-0 is enough.) Even though I support Spurs (and one day I'll take out a second mortgage and buy a ticket to actually see Spurs) I really want Man U to win!

luv, Mags x
