Magical Monday .....Saturday chat






This week on TMITA/PCC Magical Monday Patti issued the challenge and it's a sketch.... all we had to do was pick one of Nina's images to work with. I love this little one called 'Saturday Chat' and it fits Patti's sketch perfectly.

I Know you guys in the US and UK are just hanging out for Spring after a shocker of a winter, so I chose some pretty Spring colours for my card.
I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to emboss the roses. The dp is a sheet from doodlebug design inc. called pinwheel stripe and I've teamed this with lime and pinkie mauve card from American Crafts. Spellbinder classic oval dies were used to cut out the image and the scalloped mat.

Nina's cute image was coloured with Copic markers and I added some sparkle to this cute birds hat, two green gems to finish.

Hope you get the chance to join in this week, the randomly picked winner gets to pick a design from Nina's on-line shop here.

Hope to see you back here tomorrow before the Walsh's Whistle-Stop Sight Seeing Tour hits the road!!!!

Take care.

Definately springish and I love everything about this card. Is that a new cuttlebug embossing folder? First time I've seen it and it is stunning.
