Saturated Canary photo challenge!

Hmmm, normally I would run away screaming from photo challenges! They just instill a sense of panic in me - but then I am slightly peculiar! However, the pink flowers on the photo enthused me and I ended up with one very pink card! lol! The pink is doubley perfect because I stumbled across a new challenge blog 'In the Pink' that's all about pink!! Genius. Gotta love a mind that comes up with the perfect challenge blog!!

The papers are definitely papermania but I can't tell you which pack because I'm down to the last dregs of the pad and I can't find the cover sheet. I've stuck so many embellies on though the papers could be anything! lol! I must learn some restraint. I'll pop it on my wish list!!

Isn't it great when you get to use all your fave embellies on one card? I've used the butterfly border from the Tim Holtz range at Sizzix, the Magnolia Doo Hickey fence and dragonfly and the Cheery Lynn French Pastry Doily die. Then I ran out of room!!!The image is the yummy Honey again as she's my new favourite. I used a mix of copics and promarkers: Skin - Coral, sunkissed pink, blush, ivory, Dress - R85, R 83, R81, RV000, RV0000, Hair - C0, C1, C3, C5, C7. The flowers are from WOC and the beautiful ribbon is from Sam Poole.

It's not often I really enjoy making a card but this one cheered me up. It's good to make a card just to please yourself every once in a while!

I've spent ages colouring an image and made a pig's ear of the last bit :( I'm off to see if I can salvage it now that I've calmed down a bit!

Hugs for the weekend, Jayne xx
