A Sunday Posy and Quacking Greetings

Sketch Saturday
have another must do sketch this week and a great prize as well, so had to make this my first come back challenge. Thanks everyone on the challenge blog I always know I can rely on you when Mojo is being lazy.

Another image from the Whiff of Joy - Elizabeth Bell Summer Collection for this card, BTW these stamps will be available to order separately from midnight tonight, so if you missed ordering the kit now is your chance to get the stamps.

I have tried to be a bit more adventurous with this card and used some items from my stash, she has been coloured with Copics on SU Whisper White card, I have gone around the edge of the image with Tattered Rose Distress Inks, the leaves were punched from blue cardstock and sprayed with Glimmer Mist they look fabulous IRL and I will certainly use this method again.

I have used the same papers (Kaiser Craft) inside and also punched a small circle from the same image,

Toodle and Binks DT Card

This is one of the new Toodle and Binks stamps available at Stamp Galaxy, his name is Puddleduck Pothington, I think he is great, to see lots more of examples of these great stamps why not visit The Toodles and Bink Blog, my fellow Dt members have created some fabulous cards.

Puddleduck just called out for bright colours to me and not to much embellishment, so it is quite a plain but colourful card.

The colour scheme has been carried on to the inside of the card.
