Flossie Congrats

Good morning bloggy peeps!
It must be Thursday as here I am again with 
a card for Just Inklined

The image I have used is Flossie Congrats such a cute little couple!
I can think of numerous occaions they could be used for!
I used the sketch from 
for the layout of my card.

I coloured the image with a mix of Promarkers, Flexmarkers & Copics
The papers are from Craftwork Cards. I bought a set of Goodie Boxes 
from them a while back & the contents are fantastic!

The green embossed card is from American Crafts & the 
sheer ribbon is from the Goodie Box.

The flowers are from my stash & have been there a very long
time! I have no idea where I got them but I do love them!
The pom pom trim has been in my stash for ages too!
The gems are Mei Flower

One For The Guys

Good morning lovely blog readers!
Here is my little creation for the new challenge over at
Crafting For All Seasons where the theme is
"One For The Guys"

I made a little rocker card for Fathers Day!
For those who are not aware, it's Fathers Day in the UK on Sunday 16th June!
I used Kraft CS for the base card & the scalloped mat.

The image I have used is from our sponsor 
Bugaboo Stamps.  Who are offering a fab prize of 7 digis to
one lucky winner! The image is called Gus Birthday - Optional
There is a fab sentiment which comes with it which although intended 
for a birthday, might also work well for other occasions too!
The image has been printed onto ivory cardstock from Southfield Stationers
then coloured with promarkers, cut out with a circle nestie then
inked with a liquid chalk inkpad.
I tried to pick out some of the colours in thedesign paper!
I also added some glossy accents to his glasses & the headlights.

The papers I have used are K&Co, Hopscotch Boy.
It's actually two sides of the same sheet.
I thought the transport images would work well with the image!
I made a little rosette which can be removed & worn if desired!
The tape I've used was in my stash, not sure where it came from
but I'm guessing it's recycled from packaging!

A little side view to finish up!
I'm putting this card forward for the following challenges:
