Happy Monday

Good morning all, I hope Monday finds you all well & looking forward to the week ahead!
Here's my latest DT card for the Monthly Challenge over at My Grafico!

This week the ladies on the Design Team were given this line art sketch by Mujka Chic to work with you can find it here!

Do pop over to the other DT ladies' beautiful blogs & leave them some love when you get a moment! We all like to know what you think of our work,
To make this weeks card, I used a shaped card blank to make a twisted easel.
I inked the edges with pink, using a sponge.

The image was coloured with promarkers & cut out using a nestie! I used spring colours as Lilies alway make me think of spring!
This is the first time I have tried to cut out a shape which is outide of the nestie & I think it worked quite well.
There are lots of tutorials out there which show you how to do it!
I inked the edges with the same pink.

The sentiment was computer generated & cut out with a smaller nestie from the same set.
The papers I have used were from my stash, I've had them forever! 
They are from a pack of papers which were hand made in India.
The green ribbon, which you can just about see in the pic,was from my stash! 
The MUM letters are glitterations stickers from Anita's. (This card is for my lovely mother-in-law, Joyce, for Mother's Day! Shhhhhhh!)
 I also added a few gems just to finish it off.
Thanks for stopping by!
