Dutch Canary

Another sunny day here, so after posting this I'm off into town to do some clothes shopping ready for my holidays. I'm counting down the days now... 9 to go!

There is a new blog for all Saturated Canary lovers called 'Het Canary. They were giving away a free digi called Dutch Girl for a challenge to have the chance of winning a SC rubber stamp. This is the image I've used and for this card I've also followed a sketch and a colour inspiration photo.


I coloured the SC image with promarkers and brushed the oval edges with blue chalks. The background paper is from Raspberry Road Designs and the plain blue piece is from my scrap box. I used a Memory Box spring border die-cut and the ribbon, flowers and tiny blue gems are all from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Het Canary challenge 'Dutch Girl digi'
Totally Gorjuss challenge 'It's a sketch'
Cupcake Craft challenge 'Colour inspiration photo'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'Inspired by a song or film' (It had to be 'Tulips from Amsterdam')
Ladybug Crafts challenge 'First challenge - Anything goes'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'Anything goes'

Right now I'm off to see if I can still fit in a size 14 or if they've put the wrong size labels in them!!
