CES Challenges DT Card..............

Good morning everyone how are you all?
Well its a new challenge over at CES Challenges this week & the lovely Julie has set the theme.
MIX & MATCH
We want to see papers from 2 different manufacturers on your creations.........mix & match.....

I have mixed Fancy Pants 'Its The Little Things' which is the bottom layer & Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' which let me tell you these 2 pads go gorgeously together & I will be mixing these some more.....lol...
I matted it all on kraft card & edged it with Vintage Photo distress ink.

I used an MS punch for the edge of the top 2 layers of kraft card. The ticket sentiment is from my Whimsy stamps & cut it out using the Whimsy ticket die all of which I got from Bunny Zoe's. I also added a Tim Holtz paper clip to it.

The flower I made with lace & attached a brass button to the centre after stitching the flower to create the ripples, if you know what I mean lol..........both of these are from my stash.

Tim Holtz charm & I attached it using some jump rings from my jewellery making stash & then finished it off with another brass button to match the flower in the opposite corner..........

The gorgeous image is 'Deevonne' by Hannah Lynn & she is a digi image exclusive to Crafts & Me. I coloured her a when I came out of hospital the last time but have only just finally put her on a card.
Sorry I cant remember the colours I used.

The 6x6 scalloped card base & the papers & card candy are all from Crafty Emma's Store.

Please pop on over to see my fabulous teamies creations & leave them some love cus they really do deserve it, they make fantastic things.
We hope you can join us this week & look forward to seeing you all.

Thank you for stopping by I really appreciate it.
Squishy hugs to all xoxoxoxox
Challenges I'm Entering.................
