Christine Dark Beauty!

Evening everyone!  Hubby is watching the footie and all my lovelies are out - eek, we're Darby and Joan!!  Anyway,  I disappeared to make a card and this is the result.
Debs, my teamie over on PFP, has use one of Christine's gorgeous digi images for her weekend workshop tutorial here and it is stunning so go and take a peek.  It reminded me of these fab digis that I bought from Christine at The Sketching Stamper a fair while ago so thought I'd dig them out and isn't she a little beauty (and amazing value)!  I met Chris a couple of months ago at a Craft Barn demo where she was showing her amazing colouring skills with Distress Inks, and she was so lovely as well as so talented!!! 

I got these fabulous papers - Utopia by Kaiser Krafts and so have left the card fairly uncluttered (for me!!) as I didn't want to hide them! The flowers are also a new purchase from Wild Orchid Crafts!!  (Think the zip on my purse is broken now, I've opened it so much!! )   For the vertical background strip I used a deep edge MS punch but punched each side to get the flower effect.  I used the sketch over on Cute Card Thursday for my layout so am entering it into that challenge.  I'm also entering it in the current Dare U 2 Digi Stamp challenge whose theme is Blooms and Butterflies.

Well, DD3 has just got home as I was writing this, so off to have a chat with her.  Catch up with you later!

Hi Julie and WOW your card is amazing and your colouring has brought the fairy to life! Although I blush at your wonderful words LOL, they go right back to you, you're so lovely and talented and it was such a great pleasure to meet you IRL, I really hope that happens again soon. Shame about the timing at the CB, I was doing a class when you arrived but may be next time? Have to get some of the papers you used, they're very pretty, someone elses zip will be broken I think :D. Enjoy your weekend and thanks for joining in on DU2DS. Chris x
