Two challenge combo card - ROP DT

Today I would like to share with you a card I made for another challenge combo :) Do you remember this pretty, charming fella from Magnolia Elf Collection? I just LOVE his whimsical, one-sided smile.. he's so darn cute! And with that butterfly background behind him.. he's so sweet, don't ya think? :)

I made this card using the lovely sketch that sweet and sooo talented Rach did for Just Magnolia. If anyone of you hasn't visited Rachel's blog.. I warn you.. you're missing soo much!! Her blog is part of my daily fix! Thanks Rach for all the inspiration you sharewith us all! :)

I just loved this sketch, and luckily enough I had already coloured the images for another challenge.. which then I didn't have time to finish! (It was the birthday sketch for Sketch Sautrday!!) Any way, I used it here, matted with Basic Grey Cupcake and Marrakech bright papers. I jusy love the reds and blues together lately!!

Also Spoon Full of sugar challenge this week is Butterflies - having at least one butterfly in your creation. Well I have some behind my dear Alf.. and a butterfly charm dangling there from the ribbon. I am not using charms very often nowadays! They are sooo hard to find here, so I treasure the few I have just like diamonds!!! hehe Silly me!!

The Magnolia images are coloured in Distress inks, and the sentiment is from a stamp I found that cost me only one euro! Lovely :)

On the inside I carried the sketch again on one of the panels, leaving a jotting white area, and on the other I made a smaller part of the image. I loved how this card turned out. It's bright and very cheerful! :)

BIG hugs to you my dear friend... and I hope that you're having a bright and cheerful week yourself! :) I'm still benefitting from the energy I have now, after the little break I took!! Thank you for any comments or e mails you send me.. I appreciate each and one of you immensely! Thanks for your constant support!

Last but not least ... actually this is the best part! Don't forget the GDT call for Summer's new line of stamps coming next month. These are the Belles & Whistles, designed by the very talented Elisabeth Bell. For more info visit our ROP Challenge Blog. Don't forget that we are having a colour challenge over there ,and that you have still till next Sunday to enter. Next week's challenge will be hosted by me! Good luck!

Thanks for looking
