Papertake Weekly #47

Hi girls. It's great to have you here today visiting my little blog. I hope you enjoy your time here and find something pleasing to the eye and if I've really done well you may even find a bit of inspiration. I would love to think that my cards encourage others to exploit their crafting mojo.
Weather was a bit mixed yesterday but I suppose at this time of year we can't really complain.
I made this card with the latest challenge from Papertake Weekly in mind. They gave us a marvellous sketch to use as a basis and I hope I have done it justice. I inked up Lili of the Valley's "New Hat" and coloured her with a mixture of Copics and Polychromas pencils. The sparkly paper is GCD Studios Designer Paper - "Homespun Garden". I have also used Stampin Up's "Rose Red" and an unnamed turquoise paper. I used Bazzil Bling as a mount.The flowers are by Magnolia and the roses are "My Moments". The ribbon, stickles and glimmer dust are from my stash.
I really hope you like this card enough to leave a comment for me. I love to read what you have to say and I really like to know who has been visiting me so that I can ensure that I am not missing out on visiting anyone's blog.
Finally, I just want to make a mention of a new challenge blog started by my blogging buddy Arina from the Netherlands. It's specifically a challenge aimed at producing cards for men. "What!" I hear you say. Yes I know we all find cards for men difficult to come up with so maybe it will prove just the thing to force us to overcome our reluctance. Why not pop over to and see what is required.

Enjoy the start of your week and stay safe and healthy.
Love and Hugs,
