DT Card - Lacy Sunshine Challenge #5

Hi Folks!

Hope you're all ok and having lots of fun crafting?  Been busy again at my end but one day I'll manage to get organised and have more time for blogging and commenting.

Anyway, today is the start of our 5th challenge over at the Lacy Sunshine Challenge Blog and the theme for this week is the ultra popular ANYTHING GOES!  Yay.  So we're hoping for lots of lovely entries.  As always, the prize is a $30 voucher to spend at the Lacy Sunshine Store, so head over to the challenge, have a look through the rules and information, take some inspiration from the fabulous Sunshine Girls DT cards and get crafting! 

And here's my card for this challenge:

My card features the brand new Wanda digi which is called Wanda's First Spring and is ONLY available from Heather's Lacy Sunshine store.  If you see Heather Valentin digis for sale anywhere else apart from there or her new Etsy store, then the seller has no authorisation to sell them.  They are breaking the law and are criminals. 

Anyway, Wanda is well chuffed in this digi as it's her first spring and she's loving it after the long, cold ice age winter.  And isn't she gorgeous?  Aawwwwww.

I've coloured the image using my promarkers as follows:

Wanda:  Shale, Walnut, Cocoa and Cinnamon.
Tusks:  Putty
Flowers:  Antique Pink and Baby Pink
Leaves:  Forest Green and Bright Green
Ground Shadow:  Putty
Outline:  Cool Grey 1

The backing paper is from Bearly Mine (link over on right) and I did all the cutting on my Cameo using Penny Duncan cutting files.  

The flowers and leaves are from Wild Orchid and the pink brads are from my stash.  

And that's it...a pretty card where the artwork and papers do all the talking.  Hope you like it.

Take care everyone and happy crafting!
