Sweet Stampin' - scallops

We have a nice easy challenge for this week at Sweet Stampin' - scallops... we've all got something with scallops, right?  We're sponsored by Crafts & Me who are offering one lucky winner 3 digi stamps, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen with a £10 voucher prize.




Crafts & Me did kindly give the DT some images to use, but as I'd had this one for ages and never used her, I thought I'd get her coloured in at last.  This is Deevonne and she's coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers.  The papers are from the fabulously named Let Them Eat Cake set from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card.  The scalloped rectangle is a Nellie Snellen die, corner is a Whimsy die and the flower is my current obsession - the Memory Box cherry blossom die.  Ribbon and lace from The Stamp Basket.  I added a silver spacer and large pearl centre to the flower.  Sentiment is Stampin' Up.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

I'm hoping to drag hubby out to do a bit of clothes shopping today... well actually we'll be dragging each other because we both hate shopping for clothes lol.  I really need some new stuff though, my summer tops are all looking a bit tired - probably because I wear them all year round and just throw a cardigan over the top in the winter... I don't really feel the cold!  Anyway, enough waffling - hope you all have a fabulous weekend whatever you've got planned :o)

Gorgeous card Lisa, love the pink hair. I hate clothes shopping too and usually only buy clothes in Florida as it doesn't seem such a chore then and of course the best clothes shop is next to a craft shop so it is rude not to pop in there as well lol. Hugs, Amanda x

I've just had a lovely catch-up of the cards I seem to have missed since Tuesday. Slow and sometimes non-existent internet is a real pain in the neck!

Sarah said...

Hi Lisa, another wonderful card - gorgeous hair and love the colour!

You've done much better than me with her hair - I think I'll leave these amazing images to those with amazing colouring skills like you!

Hope the clothes shopping wasn't too difficult. Y'know I used to love going shopping for clothes, but since I had Em I just don't enjoy it anymore. I think it has a lot to do with my image of what I look like having nothing to do with reality!!! Quite happy to spend money on Emily's clothes now.

Craftdee said...

Beautiful card, Lisa, love the palette and the image is so well coloured. I just noticed she's called Deevonne, which feels surreal because I'm Dee to my family and my middle name is Yvonne!! My hair used to be that long too, but not that pink! TFS, Donna ☺
