I've Been Inspired!!!

Not sure for how long lol... Went to the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at the Ally Pally yesterday with Zoe (my son's partner, not sure what to call her but she is like a daughter-in-law without the law lol). We had a fantastic time. Loads of goodies & inspiration to behold. I met the lovely Linda who has become a real friend through blogging & it was just like I had known her for years :-) She was on a stall which was very busy (as they all were) so we didn't have long to chat but it was just nice to meet her in person.

The only thing I need now is time which as we all know is often very hard to come by lol. Anyway on to the card: this cute image was coloured in with Distress Inks (with a bit of chalk for the sky). The papers are Papermania (I brought some gorgeous papers at the show, just gotta bring myself to use them now). The glittery flowers are K & Co I believe I used a sticky lace border.

This card fits 3 challenges:
Sketch Saturday
Cute Card Thursday - Floral Fantasy
Crafty Creations - Sparkle

PS. Sorry for the usual blurry photos lol & I've just noticed the image has come away in the left hand side, this has now been re-stuck!
