CES Challenges DT Card..............Show us your colours.....

Good morning my lovelies how are you all? Glad its the weekend? I know I am!!!
Of course its Saturday which can only mean 1 thing yayyyyy CES Challenge time....
& this week our fabulous Amy has chosen the theme a fab one too...
FAVOURITE COLOURS
Yep we want to see what colours you love to use the most. Now I have 3 that I absolutely love so deciding which one was hard even hubby tried help by getting me to choose an image first which I did.....only prob being she would look gorgeous in all my fave colours.....& more!!!. Anyway in the end I went for the colours I love to colour with the most & look what fell into my hand.....blues & I used my fave blue pens

Yes I've used this beautiful girl right here....isn't she just so pretty. She is of course from the latest set of Simply Sassy's & she is 'Pigtails & Butterflies' from Funkykits who let me tell you is fabulous. I ordered some stamps day before yesterday & they arrived this morning.....how blooming fantastic is that!!!!!
Another simplish card from me...... Do you like the flutterby I crocheted? Its surprising what ya learn when ill in bed with hot water bottle on ya kidney lol. The antenna's are just flower stamens.

For the layout I followed a fabby sketch which flows together perfectly, I loved it!!

I added glossy accents to her jar to make it look more realistic, you gotta love that stuff.

She is of course coloured with Copics. Now I was running late with my DT card so only actually made this last night & half way through making it I remembered the Simply Sassy header Challenge who want a sassy image in cool colours...sorry about the boots girls. I couldn't decide whether to be brave or not to enter but I'm gonna take the chance & enter.....talk about last minute lol thats how nervous I was about doing this.... Gosh wish me luck.... Hope they dont mind about the leaves.....

Last pic I promise lol. For the inside I followed the sketch as well
Ingredients used.....
6x6 scalloped card blank, Prima 'Sparkling Spring' papers, pink stamens & smooth white card for image.
Twill sentiment - Crafts & Me
White Lace - Bunny Zoe's
Everything else is from my stash.
Well thats it from me peeps hope you will come along & show us your fave colours pop over here to see my fabby talented teamies creations, they are gorgeous as always.
Well my nervous fingers are off to link up..... Thank you sooooo much for stopping by today I love you all & really do appreciate you stopping by to see my creations mmwah.
Tatty bye for now xoxoxoxo

Hi Vicky
love your card, (you chose well as colours are scrummy), love that sweet sweet image, also love the leaf/flower die that you have used ? whose make is it (may have to get that one). I may have to stop looking at your beautiful cards on your blog, as you are costing me a small fortune lol.
