Just Inklined To Hop - Favourite Colour Combo

Good Morning all & welcome to the November Just Inklined Hop!

The hop this month is hosted by our oh so talented Joyce who has chosen the theme
"Favourite Colour Combo"
If you're already hopping, you'll have landed from  the lovely Karen J's blog,
where I'm sure there was something wonderful to see!
Now, on to my little card

A not so little 8"x8" 75th Birthday card in pinks purples & blues!
I used the awesome "wrinklies" image Betty Bloomer!
She's such a hoot, don't you think? Just adorable!
I could hear the strains of Knees Up Mother Brown all the time I was
working with her! If you don't know the song check this out!

If you're in a hurry to hop on,
your next stop is our one & only, awesome Tammy!
Don't forget to leave a little love at each stop as you could win a spot prize.
You just never know who the mystery host is!
If you want to know a bit more about my card, read on!

I coloured up the image with a mix of flex & promarkers
I cut the image out with a square die & inked the edges before removing.
The Knees Up sentiment was done on the pc then die cut & inked too. 

The 75 was cut using my Cricut then embossed in a Cuttlebug Swirls folder.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from LOTV. I cut that with a nestie then 
matted on to a scalloped circle.

I used a sketch I found on a challenge blog for the layout but 
I can't remember where.
The papers are from Lidl, they are clear embossed & glittered with lots of
lovely texture to them & the ribbon is up-cycled from a friends top.
A few gems & some broderie anglaise from my stash finish it off.
The inside of the card is decorated in a similar fashion but in typical fashion, 
I wrote it out before I remembered to get my photos!
Now if you're hopping on, don't forget to leave a little love then carry on over
to visit Tammy! Thanks so much for stopping by!
Happy hopping!
