Wild Orchid #17 & Simon Says & Truly Scrumptious #51


Hi girls. Thank you for dropping in on my blog today. You are very welcome and hopefully you'll find something you like. I hope you're having a great weekend so far. I sincerely hope your weather is better than ours. We woke up yesterday morning to snow again and it was lying. It was a fairly cold day so it didn't disappear completely although most of it was melting. Surely it can't keep coming back - or can it?
My card today is being entered into three challenges. Wild Orchid had a wonderful sketch to follow, Simon Says had the theme " Make your own embellishments" and Truly Scrumptious wanted "Swirls and Pearls". I inked up "Picking Apples", a Sugar Nellie image by Elizabeth Bell and coloured it with a mixture of Copics and Promarkers, The papers are digis printed off a CD. The Die is from Marriane Designs and the ribbons and pearls are from my stash.
I would really appreciate it if you could leave a comment to let me know you have visited and to tell me what you think of this card. I hope you like it.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and stay safe and healthy.
