New Challenge at Fussy and Fancy

Good morning everyone,

I hope you have all had a lovely week. As this post goes out I will setting off to the Peak District with hubby. Tomorrow we are visiting my son and his girlfriend in their new home in Nottinghamshire (it's a farm, I am very excited to see it) and on Sunday I am off to stay with my parents in Lincolnshire for around 10 days to do some some crafty shopping and to re-charge my batteries. I haven't seen them for a year so I am looking forward to it.

So today begins a new challenge at Fussy and Fancy Our lovely Tone is hosting this challenge and she has chosen the theme of: 

CAS (Clean and Simple)

Well this challenge took me right out of my comfort zone, I really struggled with it to begin with as I have never made a CAS card, but thankfully my lovely crafty friend Judy came to my rescue and set me on the right path ( I will also be visiting Judy in Whitby whilst staying with my parents:) We are going to make some Christmas cards together:)

For my card I coloured up an All Dressed Up image, she is one of my favourites. I have coloured her with DI reinkers. I don't really own many sentiments but this stamp was a freebie from a magazine, I'm so glad I kept it. 

I have added a few white dots to the centre of the flowers with my white posca pen.

The ribbon was a left over piece which came from the Ribbon Girls (what a great way to use up some scrap ribbon).

 DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Black Soot
Dress and Shoes: Victorian Velvet, Black Soot
Wings: Victorian Velvet, Picked Raspberry, Milled Lavender
Flowers: Victorian Velvet, Picked Raspberry, Aged Mahogany, Forest Moss, Shabby Shutters

The winner of this challenge will win a GDT spot for an upcoming challenge.

That's all from me today.

Thank you for popping in.

Have a wonderful weekend.
