Sarah Kay Juliet in the Fields

Hi - Yea it is Monday! ok...trying to pump myself up for it. Gotta work today, and Hubby is home. We will see how much work I get done huh? We went to dinner at my buddy Tracey last night - had absolutely the best BBQ ever.. and we got to see AMMO! Man he is too cute... He is growing adorable long skinny legs, and long ears. I got one photo, hopefully it will turn out ok and I'll show it next Saturday.

I did get to craft this weekend. For no reason at all... just to have fun and craft! Now the photo is horrible, sorry... the colors look better in person. But the light pink and cream just isn't doing well in the camera this morning.
So I guess I am saying in person I am happy with this one, but here.. blech.. not so happy. LOL

So I used the new Stampavie Sarah Kay image Juliet in the Fields, colored with my Copics. The pattern paper is I believe Websters Pages. I think. I found it loose in my stash. Then I went totally nuts with dies cuts! The "ribbon band" is actually a piece of pattern paper, with Sizzix Tim Holtz Vintage Lace die cut on both sides. Then for the top corners of my image I used Whimsy Stamps cute little Corner Die set. The butterfly is a Marianne die, so pretty and delicate. Then the sentiment is a Sizzix die from their card making die set. Told you went a bit crazy with dies and had a blast!

I inked the edges of everything with Distress inks old paper - then added Martha Stewart fern punches, mulberry roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and then small paper buds from the floral section of the craft store. Then I went in with just a bit of two colors of pearl pen to add some gem like accents.

Now I did a quick look around and found that my card qualified for a few challenges. It has been forever since I played in challenges just for fun... so I am joining in ;0)

Stampavie and More Challenge - Spring/Easter theme - I think Juliet is VERY Spring
Papertake Weekly Challenge - All things Girlie theme - lots of flowers... Girlie for sure!
7Kids College Fund Challenge - Anything Goes!
