Yet another challenge card and some luck came my way!!

Hi all

Well after having a rough few weeks life has a funny way of turning around... I came home from work today to find out I won yesterdays Blog Candy from the lovely Jude at Crafts International, it is a large square Woodware punch.... whoo hoo how lucky am I??

Pop on over to to Judes blog to find out more about her fundraising for Alzheimer's (click the blinkie on my sidebar to take you to the post.

On to the card....

This card was made for the Stampin' for the Weekend challenge which was to use orange, teal and pink.

Not sure if I really like the outcome, I think it is a bit bright and busy for my taste, but hey ho time is not on my side AGAIN!! So I will have to live with it. I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday I had decided to submit a different card for the DT call but time was not my friend this weekend!! Oh well, wish me luck -)

2 Redbananas challenge this week is "Stripes and Dots", don't they look FAB together!

I used:

Whiff of Joy stamp coloured with Pro Markers
Free backing papers from a magazine
Ribbon and ric rac from stash
Sentiment stamp again free with a magazine
