The weekend is in sight.....

.....Hello there...happy Thursday! I am so glad that its Thursday evening...the last couple of weeks have been so busy at work. Plus I am training for a 10k run that I'm doing on the 16th September around London Zoo. I am officially exhausted!!

Luckily I am working from home tomorrow, so I can have a mini lie in! That makes me happy!

Soooo....I have a slightly different card for you today....

 
 
See...I told you! Yes its girlie...but there is not a drop of hot pink or purple to be seen! I fancied trying something a little different this evening and I'm kinda pleased with how this has turned out.
 
I've used plain black paper to back the whole card and the image. I then added a square of lovely flowery/swirly paper and my sentiment. I made two paper flowers using my punches and some Stickles...they were both supposed to look like the bottom one....but I seem to have broken my mini flower punch! Whoops!!  Above the image I have added some punched paper lace.
 
Finally I coloured my cute LOTV image with my Promarkers and added some tiny pearls to the flowers. I wasn't very happy with her hair at first....but looking at it now I think its turned out ok!
 
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
 
Passion for Promarkers - lace and swirls
DYSU - Birthdays
Lili's Little Faries - Black Magic (use black on your card)
Digi Doodles - handmade flowers
 
Don't forget to pop by all these fab blogs to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week.
 
Thanks for popping by today,

Very different style for you but still gorgeous! Go you with the running - I couldn't run the length of myself but I need to do something as middle aged spread is starting to creep up on me a wee bit. Thank you so much, sweetie,for your lovely letter. I'm so pleased you're enjoying the prize - it couldn't have gone to a better blogging buddy! x

Hi Wedgie,

Love this card. It is a bit different for you! The choice of colour is lovely. I like the subtle hint of colour on her skin and the pearls.
Well done!
