What a beautiful week we've had!

Hi everyone - what a gorgeous sunny week we've had! I've managed to read two books whilst sitting in the sun relaxing it's been that gorgeous! The house is a tip mind but priorities are making the most of it while it lasts! He he!

This week at CI we're challenging you to make spring coloured cards using GREEN, PINK and YELLOW. I used the gorgeous sketch from MDUC as inspiration....

Here's mine:

Stamp: Magnolia Tilda with heart lace

Colouring: DI's; White gel pen; stardust stickles

Dies: Spellbinders doily circle; Magnolia tag
Punches: MS border lace, MS lattice

Flowers and leaves: WOC and Magnolia. Pearl sprays Hobbycraft
Pearl Brads: stash

Sentiment: Stempelglede "just a note" collection
Charms, twine and ribbon: stash

And finally a pic of the card with the tag removed!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
MDUC: Sketch

I hope you like her, it's the first time I've inked her up and I'm not happy with how her hair turned out so might have to use her again soon to have more of a play!

Have a fabby week, and if you're watching it enjoy the Royal Wedding on Friday! Or simply just enjoy the day off! Lol!

I look forward to reading any comments and I will pop by your blogs to comment later in the week.
Hugs and bunting! Katy. xxx
