Saturated Canary DT Card

Hello my lovelies how are you all? Hope you are all having a lovely weekend, ya gotta love the weekends.
Ok I'm FINALLY here with my DT card for Saturated Canary Challenges, better late than never I suppose lol. Anyway this fortnight our lovely Maria has chosen a colour scheme, pop on over to see the pic......... You have to choose at least 3 of the colours.
I have gone with one of Krista's fabulous new digi's.........yes I know they are all fabulous arn't they!!
I've used the gorgeous 'Roses are red, Violets are blue' image & my 3 main colours are the bluey turquoise, pale pink & the beigey colour.

I've added Turquoise Prima flowers & a doo-hickey die cut & some lovely 'lace' up the side.

I added a 'Coin Charm' which I tied to a 'Metal Deco thingy-ma-jig' lol with jute string. The 'Paper clip', 'Bulldog Clip', 'Ticket' & 'Key chain thingy' (I'm so technical lol) are all Tim Holtz from my stash.
The bow I made with 'Ash Rose' Shabby seam binding.

Doo-hickey die 'Lovely Fence' & inked the edges slightly. Pearls from secret santa ;0) Added a 'Doily' underneath, I think you can just see it lol.

As always she was coloured with Copics & I added 'Stickles' to her rose. The background was done with inks & the ground with copics. The die underneath the image is a Joy Crafts die which I also inked with 'Tattered Rose'.
I didnt write the colours down but I will try my best remember the colours........
E13, E21, E00, E000, E0000, R22, R20
E29, E27, E23, E21
BG09, BG06, BG01, BG000 & N5
R81, RV10, RV000
C5, C3, C2, C0
Ground was done with  E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
cant remember what greens I used :0(

I've used Bo Bunny 'Gabrielle' papers & inked the edges. The butterflies I made with my small punch & inked the edges & added 'Stickles' to the wings..........butterflies deserve to sparkle ;0)
This card has only took 3 days.............normally they take me 3-4 hours lol.

Ingredients used.............
'Roses are red, violets are blue' digi image - Saturated Canary
'Vanille Lace' - Live & Love Crafts
Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Fence' die - Bunny Zoes
Coing Charm - Funky Kits
Shabby seam binding & 'Vanille' lace - Live & Love Crafts
Metal Deco Thingy - Live & Love Crafts
Bo Bunny papers - My Crafty Heart
Stardust Stickles - My Crafty Heart
Prima Turquoise 'Serenade' flowers - My Crafty Heart
Prima 'Miss Godiva - Mermaid' flowers - My Crafty Heart
Everything else from my stash........

Well thats it from me I will be round later to see you all. I am EXTREMELY behind with things, what spare time I have I spend with my family or I'm too shattered to do blogging or crafting tbh lol. The family are used to me spending time with them & tbh nothing makes me happier. Craig is not too bad although he is still in quite a bit of discomfort............... I've always been a thankful person I thank people ALL the time for everything!!! However I didnt realise just how much he helps especially with Natalie lol, Ben works all week, Jake is at college & Megan is pregnant so they cant help & tbh you have to know what you are doing with Natalie, but I'm managing............I'm tough, like super woman.............without the costume though..........eeeeewwww not a pretty sight ;0)

Thank as always for you continued support & welcome to my new followers I'm sooooooo honoured. WOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOO 1000 followers.......will have a big candy coming up soon, I have a couple of little ones first though ;0)

Squishy hugs from me to you mmwah xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Vicky your card is gorgeous hun! Love the embellies and the colouring is lush! Just landed in New Zealand finally and taking some time to catch up with all my favourite crafty crew, so only just read about your hubby. Looks like a nasty break!! Feeling for you really deeply right now as I've nursed lots of kiddos with special needs and I know full well the 'heavy' load. You really need to watch your back, bend your knees and take plenty of rest yourself! I hope you have a kindly friend who can come and give you some help hun. I would if I was there!! Hugs to you lovely lady. Mwah, Wends x
