Three in one!

Morning all! I hope you are all enjoying your week so far?! Today's card meets with 3 of this weeks challenges. There are so many challenges and so little time I find I have to combine more and more challenges these days! I eventually got around to using some of my new BG papers for this card. I have had these new Junebug papers a few months now and didn't think I was too keen on the vibrant patterns, but I love the combination of these papers on this card.

I have used the fabulous sketch over at Friday Sketchers this week, I loved using this one and will definately use it again! It also meets with the challenge this week over at Stamp Something, which is summer and this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge which is friendship. I have made this card to give to my Best Friend, not for any particular reason, just beacause. Nothing says summer more to me than vibrant colours {especially red, I LOVE it!}, flowers and ladybugs, I just adore them! I hope she likes it!


Image: Tilda with Ladybug and flowers background, both from Magnolia, coloured with koh-i-noors and sansodor

Papers: Basic Gray JuneBug

CS: from stash

Sentiment: Circle of Friendship set from SU

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties {out of bounds technique},

Misc: Pearl brad, adhesive red pearl & flowers from stash, distressed stripes cuttlebug folder, red dew drops from stash

Well I hope you like today's card. I have to say I am particularly please with how it's turned out! For all of you who have asked, yes I did manage to get my wedding outfit sorted on sunday, I got a clutch bag and fascinator, so thats my outfit all sorted now! Thank goodness!

Thanks for stopping by today, please leave me a comment so I know you have been!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
