CES Challenges DT card........Challenge 19

Good morning everyone how are you all? I reckon most are probably happy its a weekend I know I am lol.
Well its Saturday so we know what that means......yipppppp
This week its Sue's turn & she so nicely chose.....
No DP's
If you click on her name you can go shout at her lol. Only kidding altho most of us girlies, Sue included to be honest did kinda turn down in the mouth when we saw this challenge......lol....but we conquered, well sort of.
Well we managed anayway at the end of the day.....it was the end of the day as well lol.
I have used one of my fave stamps, I've only used her once it took me sooo long to get her cus she was always out of stock. The last time I did her mono, this time I have found my new fave colour so done her in that...........'Love Is Gone' by Ching Chou-Kuik

I went for white, all white I know we dont normally get on but it behaved last night & kinda did as it was telt. I am loving pink & brown at the mo I just love the 2 colours combined.

She has been coloured with Copics & the pinks have has some prisma added. I added the text next to her with a stamp I got the other day from here & I stamped it with 'Fired Brick' distress ink. I cut her out using a nestie & then I madea frame around her using nesties. The very top layer of the frame I cut out of a doily, I love the effect its given.....will be doing that one again lol.

All of the flowers are from Emma's the scrolls I made using a die & then added pearls to them.

The butterfly is from my stash & the lace is also from my stash...this was the only bit I had & its sooo pretty so I must find some more. The ribbon slider is from Emma's
Do you like my watermarks I've had them sooooo long but been too lazy to put them on how shocking is that?? Shame on me!!!

Last piccy I think I went overboard with them lol. This one you can see the doily frame I made better which apart from the image is my fave bit.
The sweet pea image is available from Crafts & Me & also Sweet Pea Stamps. I caught their January sale by the skin of my teeth & boy did I get some bargains......they arrived 15 mins ago.....just hope I get time to play with them this weekend lol.
This week the fabby prize is a choice of 5 Promarkers, now thats worth having a play!!!
Pop on over to here to enter those fabulous cards & also check out the other girlies cards they have made for you.
I'm off to link this up at Sweet Pea stampers cus their challenge is all white, how cool is that lol.

And another WOW from me, Vicky!!! The image is breathtaking and stands out so well against the all white background - and you've done such a good job with it that I didn't even notice that you'd used no DPs until I read it in the post - you've utilised the space so well. Beautiful, it really is!! Hugs, Marie xx
