Feeling Low

I've been washing today so I've been playing at the same time. The trouble is that I keep forgetting to go downstairs to check that the load has finished so it means it takes me all day to wash two loads!

Never mind, I've had fun making this card. It's a Craft UK 8 x 8 card blank and has brown card from Papermill as backing to a Costco paper. The image is from Stitchybear and I've coloured it with Promarkers before cutting with a Spellbinders nestie. I used a Martha Stewart punch to cut a border in a band of another Costco paper and backed it with more brown card. A bronze organza ribbon from Joanna Sheen is across the top of this band of paper. I've used Create and Craft fruit buttons as embellishments and a sentiment generated on the computer. The edges of the sentiment and the main image were distressed with Ranger's Distress Inks in tattered rose. Pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts are top and bottom left corners.

This card is going to be entered in to three challenges:
Papertake Weekly - Bingo and I used the middle line down - Pearls, Ribbon and Free
Crafty Sentiments - Dies and Punches
Simon Says Stamp - Food and Drink (medicine, ugh! but you do drink it and fruit)
