Whiff Of Joy Challenge - Red, Cream and 1 Other Colour...

I thought I'd have a go at the week's Whiff of Joy Challenge as I wanted to use my Lizzie with Muff stamp which I bought last year but never got time to use on my Christmas cards...

The challenge was to use red, cream and another colour, I chose green (my cream is a bit white opps!) I coloured Lizzie with pencils, this is my preferred colouring medium at the moment as I can achieve shading this way. I have used a mish-mash of craft item on this card, all from my Christmas box. The papers are HOTP, the flower and ribbon are Brenda Pinnick , the greeting is PaperMania and then I added a bit of card candy.

And I used the leftover paper to decorate the inside (I never use leftover scraps so I'm trying to get them used on the inside from now on...) the stamp is a Dovecraft one, there are 4-5 on the sheet and they were only 99p from Ryman's stationers.

Well, that's it from me today, we had a great time yesterday at the Wedding shop, it was very posh and the dress was very expensive (should have seen my face when I saw the tag!!) We are just sitting here waiting for the health visitor to call for Dylan's 4 year check up, will try to prise the DS away from him before she comes, that won't look good lol!!

Love Becky xx

Morning Becky, your card is gorgeous, and your shading is excellent!
Glad you had a nice time at the wedding shop yesterday, dresses can be soooo... expensive that's why I went to a bridal fair!! Did you get any urges to try any on??
Hope Dylans visit goes ok, know what you mean about the DS's my 2 almost have them glued to their hands lol!!!

Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog....I'm blushing still!!

Know what you mean about the DS, The only time Callum lets his go is when he's asleep... and even then I have to 'remove' it sometimes!!
