I finally got Daisy

I haven't been happy with my style of cardmaking for a while, so have done quite a bit of blog hopping recently and noted the numerous challenge sketches available to take part in. It never ceases to amaze me how many talented crafters there are out there and how they can transform a sketch into a gorgeous work of art. I wouldnt suggest I am anywhere near ready for taking part in a challenge but I have had another dabble today - had a go at the colouring technique using pencils and sansodor on Daisy from Sugar Nellie; made a start using some of the gorgeous papers I have, instead of hording them in a drawer, so out came the K&Co 'Hannah' pad and I used 3 pages from it; one of them I ripped to give the torn edge (never done that before!!! The birthday greeting is my own creation too - computer generated using dry transfer decal paper to make my own rub ons and the finising touch is a Flora Doodles flower. The insert is stamped with a free stamp set which came with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine - it wasn't intended to have dots on the insert; silly Linda coloured the flowers with Sakura stardust pens and forgot to let it dry before closing the card - my chin hit the floor when I saw the smudges (yes, the insert had already been fixed into the finished card!) , so the smudges were transformed into dots - phew!! I have a long way to go but I really enjoyed making this card
