Spoon Full of Sugar # 49 Blue and Green.......Oh Happy day!

Just a quick post this evening to show you this card that I have been working on a little bit every night for the last few nights. I wanted to play along with the challenge over at A Spoon full of Sugar again this week cuz I had so much fun with last week's sketch!
The Challenge this week is Green and Blue...well this colour combo always reminds me of a little saying my Mum would tell me when I was little "Blue and Green should never be seen except inside the washing machine", lol! I actually really like blue and Green together but I also I like red and pink together too and apparently that is another colour combo no-no, smile! Well, after I knew what colour combo I was going to use I went searching for a sketch. I just wasn't in the mood to come up with the card design either a bit lazy in fact, smile!
Well, I had no luck finding a sketch so then I got sidetracked and started blog hopping...I went and visited my blogging pal Kathy the Distressed Stampers!!! Well, I just fell in love with this stunning card! OMG!! It is so stunningly beautiful! I can't even tell you how long I just sat and stared at every little detail...absolutely brilliant! I just love it!!! So, I printed it and decided to use her fabulous card design as my sketch and inspiration for this card!!!!

Well, I am pretty happy with how mine turned out! Thanks Kathy for the fabulous inspiration!
I used some scraps of this BoBunny paper that I had left over from a scrapbooking page that I did last year and this new yummy American Craft ribbon that I picked up at Micheals! I cut the big label shape on my Silhouette and the "play circle label" is from Shabby Shoppe and I printed it on Kraft cardstock for a little different look!
I stamped Tilda and the butterfly on Prism Simply Smooth cardstock and coloured them with my Copics and added lots of Shimmerz! I also inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks Antique Linen and Scattered Staw and added the Melissa Frances rub-ons directly to the main image and the label on the inside of the card.

I finished my inside too...this card will going in my sale bin at work! I have raised $240 for The Canadian Hearing Society and I am so excited but my card pile is getting low! I would like to see if I can reach $300 by the end of May!!! I will have to get busy and make more cards,lol!!!
Thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek! Now I am off to pack up all my crafty stuff as I am going to my friends house tomorrow for a girls scrapping, stamping cardmaking day and hope to make lots of cards!

Oooooooooh, this is amazing T! I love everything about it, especially the pretty colours. I am very cross with you though!! I didn't know about Shabby Shoppe until I read your post, now I just have to spend some cash. Those circles are brilliant and there are some very yummy papers too. See, you've been very naughty making me spend when we're supposed to be on a stash diet, hee hee! xx
