Betcha Thought..

I was gonna miss the Pollycraft DT Call deadline.
Fear not, friends.

I printed out the adorable Daisy from the Candyfloss Crew (Don't you LOVE it?!) out late yesterday afternoon.. and spent nearly the entire night in front of the TV colouring her. Then.. I had to go to bed.. then.. I had to get up and go to work.. and I've only just got round to finishing up a card with her.

I printed her out at 5" so I had a lot of Daisy to colour.. and I made a pretty simple card by my standards with just some pretty papers, a slice of ribbon and a button here and there. Oh, and of course a few drops of Stickles and Liquid Pearls. :)

My papers are from My Minds Eye Memorable collection. GAWD. I can't get enough of the stuff. I've added some lace and twill stripe ribbon from The Ribbon Girl. I loved that paisley paper too much to cover it up anymore. 

I coloured Daisy with my ProMarkers. Here's a list of combos some of you may be interested in:
Hair - Buttercup, Mustard, Gold, Raw Sienna
Jeans - Stonewash, Cloud Blue, Cobalt Blue, Midnight Blue
Pullover - Tea Rose, Budding Rose?, Dusky Rose, Antique Pink

How pretty is she? Perfect for all sorts of occasions. I added an old Pollycraft sentiment to the side of the image, which I hoped would leave me more room for embellishment on the card.. look what happened?! HAH!

That's all I got for ya guys.

You've two more days to enter the Pollycraft DT Call over at Paula's blog. How could I pass up this opportunity? I have loved working with Paula, her digis and her awesome DT and am over the moon that things have started up again and everything is looking brighter for everyone. 

Goodevening, all. xo
