A perfect day

Hey hey! :) Have you been enjoying your weekend? I sure have, but it's been coming to an end way too quickly. But it's the say every week, isn't it? 

A short while ago I bought an animal class from Alyce at Kit and Clowder, but I didn't have many of the markers I needed so yesterday I did some serious shopping; I bought quite some markers so now I can actually start practicing. Can't wait! :) I've already put some of those markers to use - though not for colouring animals. But for colouring Anya from The greeting farm. :) I really like this image and therefore I made another card with it.

I coloured the image with Promarkers. I think this was the first time I coloured the black hair with markers. I know I still need A LOT of practice (and probably another marker or 2), but for the first time I don't think it was THAT bad. 

Not really a typical card for me. I'm always scared of using black on my cards/creations, but Rosemary and Stephanie totally rock this (and I LOVE their creations!), so I decided to give it a try too. Thank you so much ladies for inspiring me and for making me step out of my comfort zone! :)

The gorgeous papers came from Prima Romance novel paper pad. The sentiment and the tags I used on my card also came from the same paper pad - I cut those out with my scissors.

I used so many different embellishments on my card - everything from buttons, brads, flowers, doily, paper clip, pearls and sequins to ribbon. :) Here's a closer look of the flowers and the buttons (that "snail house" is a button as well).

All of those embellishments came from my stash. 

I raised the image and the sentiment on foam pads to give the card some dimension.

So much from me today. Enjoy the rest of the weekend and don't work too hard at work tomorrow. ;)
Hugs! xx
