I coloured her using my Promarkers.
I then used the cricut to cut her out in a circle shape and then layered her onto the scalloped circle.
My background papers is both from the My mind's eye - lime twist paper stack ( I just love these papers soooo much).
I hand made the flowers by cutting them out from matching papers, using a flower template and a circle punch.
I then added the paper lace border and the swirls which I cut out using the cricut as well.
Lastly I added all the little pearls and the Ribbon bow.

Good Evening Bloggers,
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend so far, I must say this is the laziest Sunday we had in a very long time. Got up very late this morning and just did about nothing for the whole day! Me hubby and little one has been watchings dvd and eating junk for most of the day.....

So I decided to quickly come and do my post, before it is way too late.

The following card I made for the New challenge starting over on Gingerloft today and it is running for two weeks and our theme is to add some beads to your creation.
So here's mine:

The image I used is the French clown and it is available from Gingerloft. I just went for something plain and simple, so I didn't want to add too much embellishments to it. I use the Sketch from the current Sketch and Stash challenge which I just flipped 90º. added the ribbon and bows and the glass beads (sorry if they not showing up very well).
I am entering this into the following challenges:
  1. A Spoonful of Sugar - Ribbon & Bows

We have a lovely new sponsor this week - A day for daisies and we were lucky enough to choose some lovely images to work with, so please pop over and see what the rest of my DT team has come up with.

For my card I used Dandelion Delivery and it's available here. I coloured the image using my Promarkers,
Black, Cool Greys 1-5 and the blender as I wanted to go for a monochromatic card. I them used a cricut machine to cut the image into oval and layered that onto a sparkly silver oval.
The black rectangle was punched using a Martha Stewart punch round the page punch. All my flowers was hand made out of little scraps of black, silver and white papers I had in my scrap box. The butterflies was punched using a Martha Stewart punch and then glittered using some stickles. Lastly I stamped the sentiment before assembling my whole card. I also added loads of bling which unfortunately only shows up when you click on the picture to enlarge. Well I must say I really liked all the sparkle and bling and I do like the end result of this card.
