What a Day

I've been washing today and then after coffee with neighbours I decided to make a start on a challenge card. I think it was a mistake, because everything that could go wrong HAS gone wrong. Never mind, it's finished and I'm entering it in to three challenges and then putting it out of sight.

I used a large square Craft UK card. The backing paper is from a Spring pack that I bought a few years ago. The aqua coloured paper is from Papermill. I used my Spellbinders beaded circle nestie to cut the aqua back for the LOTV image that was cut with the plain circle. The image was coloured with Promarkers. Her necklace has been blinged with Sakura gelly roll glitter pen. I added some aqua ribbon that I won as a prize from the Ribbon Shop. The aqua pearls are from Wild Orchid Crafts and yes, they are light one, dark one, light one, dark one all the way round  - just in case you thought you were seeing things! lol
I've added three different shades to the top left and three small buttons from Create and Craft are top right. I didn't make a very good job of centring the mage so I had to add a strip of aqua paper to even out the design. Oops.

The challenges I'm entering are:
Lili of the Valley - Bright and sparkly 
The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - Buttons and Bows
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
