Saturated Canary DT Card

Hello everyone I'm sorry I have been missing in action there has been a lot going on & tbh I've just not had the time to use my laptop.

Anyway I will get on with my post which is for the new challenge over at Saturated Canary & this fortnight the theme is...........
A picture inspiration.

Now I have to say I sooooooooo struggled with this so there is NOT much emerald on my creation, I'm not a fan of emerald. Also things have gone into my craft room...........however a lot is boxed up & a lot I really have no idea where it is please excuse my card lol.
There is green there & there is purple there.......... ;0)
The papers are old ones which I had left in the drawers when I packed my craft stuff up lol.

This fabby image is 'Bikini & Burgers' which is a new digi image by the uber talented Krista Smith
Even my colouring on this fabulous image let me down..............I really need get back into the swing of things!! She was of course coloured with Copics but I forgot to write down the colours, sorry :0(

Now my die-cuts machines are all still packed up so luckily I found these in my box of die-cuts. Flowers are old ones from my stash & paper clips are Tim Holtz. The gorgeous butterfly is from this fabulous Etsy shop, you gotta get some of these they are lush ;0)
The metal thingy-ma-jig & the Cheese Cloth are from LLC & I painted it with Gesso & added some sticky letters from my stash.

Also sorry about the pics hubster got me a new light box & this is the first time I've used it....need get used to it lol.

Well I'm gotta run,  but I will be back tomorrow with my candy winners that I'm extremely late with but will give you a bit more of an explanation tomorrow.
Hopefully normal service will resume VERY soon lol. Thank you soooooooo much for stopping by mmwah.

HUgs Vicky xxxxxxxxxx
