This Nearly Killed Me lol xxx

 Picture 003 copy I thought it would be a good idea to

Do Something Different

for our Papertake Weekly challenge this week.

So, what to do???

Well, I considered a few options and then i thought ‘what is it that I never ever do?’, and of course the first thing that sprang to mind was to  publish a card on here without any mistake . Now that WOULD be different, hee hee. But I didn't think it was really a viable option,  so I went with plan B which was to attempt to do a card with zilcho design paper.

Picture 001 copyAnd this is what I did.

Thank the good Lord for Cuttlebug folders and Bazzill card cos I was struggling a bit at one point. Anyway we stuck to it and I have to say that I am not too unhappy with how it turned out after all.

I coloured Tilda and the stone background with my new best friends, the Copics, and added some bling in the form of Glamour Dust cos it’s very girlie.

You can get your Copics and Bazzill card from the very lovely Tracy over at Dies To Die For and the Copics I used here were -

E0000, E00, E21, E31, E35, E37, E49, E50, E53, R0000, R11, R20 YR0000, YR00

blooms

These beautiful blooms were from Wild Orchid Crafts. Aren’t they pretty peeps :)

The pins were also from Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon was from my stash. Good old Martha's finest was from Dies To Die For.

Picture 005 copy I used silicone glue to make it look like she was leaning out of the window.

And that’s me done.

If  you get a sec, nip over and check out what the other girlies have done this week – there are truly some stunning bits of work, and loads of new ideas and inspiration. Plus as we are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp, there’s $25 worth of goodies up for grabs as well.

I’m dashing yet again cos I have shed loads of stuff to try and get done and not a lot of time to do it in cos I have to collect Miss Kyla from nursery later as Emma is working late.

Have the best day peeps and see you back here soon as soon.

Hugs to all xxx
