Shades of Blue

I have made this card today to enter into the challenge at Besties Challenge and the theme for the challenge #6 is Two Shades of Blue. You have to use one of Sherri Baldy's gorgeous Bestie images.  There are some stunning images to buy and also some freebies if you follow the blog.

I have used Talula Twinkletoes, coloured with Spectrum Noir and added blue glitter to her dress, shoes and hairband.  Also had a play with my Hougie board to make a sidestepper - first time I have done one of those.

A Gem of a Challenge - Add A Bow

Our new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge has started today and our theme this week is Add A Bow.

This is something new for me and I am quite pleased how it turned out, as I am not that techy!! I have used one of the printed background papers from Here imported into my Serif programme and then added the character accessories from Here and then Chloe with Daffodils and coloured them with Spectrum Noir and also added the sentiment.  Then just added the two little gingham bows.

The winner of our challenge will be able to select two single digi images from Pink Gem Designs.
