Bearly Mine Inspiration card

 Good Morning all, my turn to post an inspiration card for BearlyMine Challenge and Inspiration Blog
For a complete change I have used an adorably cute image from a CD....(sadly I cannot remember which one lol) doh,  I just fell in love with these and had to have a play, so the copics stayed out of sight for once LOL...

I have also been a tad naughty and used one of the papers from the Peach Dream set, which I know has been retired, but IS still available from Donna, details are given on the link shown, it just that the colours and design of the paper where just perfect Also used mini dots for the centre panel, Crafters Companion border die, leaf die by Crealies.  Tag die by Die-namics.

Have a fab day, and I hope you have drawn some inspiration from my card, using Donnas fabby papers. x.

BearlyMine Challenge

Good morning all, long time since I have posted a DT card, I do apologise for that... But I have been so busy with the Making Cards Christmas Special, I have got a tad behind with things elsewhere, plus, silly me, decided to 'throw' self down a flight of stairs, and knocked myself out.. opps... so was out of action for a couple plus weeks also, but now managed to catch up with myself all round.  

Here is my card for the new challenge at Bearly Mine Challenges and Inspiration, which starts today, and the theme for this month is Anything Goes   I have chosen to use an image from Saturated Canary, called Washi Type Kinda Girl, 

The gorge papers are by Bearly Mine Designs, Flower Delight, Simply Stripes and Mini Dots,  The Ivy dies are by Joanna Sheen.  Image coloured with copics.  pearls from stash.  :) 

Hope to see lots of beautiful entries.  Have a fun time playing along, some gorge prizes as ever.

Hugs Jackie x
