More Tweetness

I'm still on track using up old stash and also my new crafty additions but sadly no new technique with this card. Still 2 out of 3 is not so bad.... and I've not bought any new stuff this year YET!! - Just wondering if I can last out until February?!

The (first time inked) stamp which I coloured with Promarkers is from Crafters Companion 'Moonbeam Meadow' and the Cheery Lynn die 'medium rose' flower is the other new addition. The old stash is paper (last sheet) from Pink Petticoat, blue ribbon (last piece) and gems. The other dies I used are Memory Box 'twirling vine frame' and Marianne Design Creatables swirly shape and the sentiment is from the same Crafters Companion stamp set as the image.

I shall enter this in the following challenges ~

Penny Black and More challenge 'one for the girls'
Stamping Sensations challenge 'anything goes with a die/s'
I Love Promarkers challenge 'use something new'
Mod Squad challenge 'friendship'
Creative Inspirations challenge 'florals'
Die Cuttin' Divas challenge 'tweet tweet, use a bird'
Scrapy Land challenge 'anything goes with a brand of die Scrapy Land sells'
Tuesday Throwdown challenge 'add dimension'
A Gem of a challenge 'female birthday'
Sweet Stampin' challenge 'flowers'

Thanks for taking the time to pop by today. I'm off now to have a rummage through the crafty cupboard to see what else I can find.

I could almost be persuaded it's summer looking at your pretty card Andrea, then I looks out of the window !

I was being good like you and was sure I would last out until February until I started playing brushos and 'needed' those new colours, never mind the intent was good.

Many thanks for sharing your pretty card with us at Penny Black and More and Stamping sensations challenges.

Such a sweet image and colored so beautifully. The decorative paper works so well with the focal image and the rose flower is the perfect finishing touch. Thanks so much for joining us at Scrapy Land Challenge 33.

I've very proud of you for not purchasing anything so far this year. I have not either. YAY! for both of us although the stores are not happy with us. This card is just as lovely as can be. I love the image and it is colored so nicely. The dies are just adorable and really add that extra something to your card. Have a wonderful day.
