Simply Gorjuss! DT Card Challenge #28

Morning everyone!

Hope you're all having a fab weekend?

Today is the start of Challenge #28 over at Scribble and Scrap Crafts and it would be fab if you could join us!  We have two new teamies for you to meet this week as well.

As always, the Challenge is Anything Goes and there are two winners prizes (one drawn by Random and one selected by me) of £10 to spend on anything you like in the Scribble and Scrap Crafts shop.
We have so many stunning products to choose from now, and it is ever expanding. is my DT card for this challenge.

The photo isn't quite right for the colours - I just cannot get the greens right no matter which setting I use on the camera and how much fiddling around I do, but I actually think that this is one of  the best cards I've ever made.  I'm so pleased with how it's worked out.  

I have used the following products from Scribble and Scrap Crafts to make this card:

I created the backing card by using my My Craft Studio software to play around with colour until is had created one which worked well with all the papers, and printed it out to use as matting layers and for the leaf and flourish die cuts.  

I made the flowers myself using some of my digital papers and I will have them in the shop very soon.  :o)  They are so vintage and them! 

So everything I used (apart from the 8x8 card blank) are either available in the
 Scribble and Scrap Crafts shop now or very soon will be. 

I stamped the image and sentiment onto watercolour card and coloured the image using the following Promarkers. 

Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush, Baby Pink, Tan, Caramel, Putty, Frosted Leaf, Khaki, Walnut, Burnt Orange, Orange, Amber and the Blender.  

I really enjoyed colouring this image.  I've not coloured a lot for ages but I'm reasonably pleased with how this has came out.  I've also not coloured red hair before and used different colours to those I would usually use.  

I will be entering this card into the following challenges: - Anything Goes - 5th

Hope you like my card.  Don't forget to head over to the challenge to join in the fun and see the rest of the DT's fabulous inspiration. 

Take care and happy crafting!
