The Papers Just Don't Work....

... with the sentiment or the image but I was desperate to use them so I chucked them together anyway! You know how much I love my Zoe Pearn goodies right? Well these babies have been burning a hole on my hard drive for way too long!

I followed the sketch from Dare You to Digi Stamp and I really enjoyed playing with it. I struggled a bit to find the right shaped sentiment and after I had settled for and attached this one, it was only then that I realised I could have done one on the PC which would have been slightly more appropriate...! Oh well, it's done now. I guess I'll give it to someone who is celebrating a new job or something and hope that they don't look too closely at all of the individual elements!

Goodie List........ 
Digi Stamp: 'Darby & Bumbles' by CC Designs, rubber version available HERE from DTDF. 
Digi Paper: 'Alphabet Soup for Girls' by Zoe Pearn, from Sweet Shoppe Designs.
Copic Markers: E00, E02, E11, E50, R81, R83, R85, YG03, YG23, YG63, B00, B02, B05, YR04, YR07, YR23, Y15, Y17, Y21, W1, W3, W5, W7 - available HERE from DTDF. 
Embellishments: Elzybells sentiment, ribbon and pearls from stash.

Personally, I think the colours I've used and the flower that Darby is holding make this a pretty summery card. So, I'm going to enter this in to this weeks One Stop Crafts challenge where the theme is 'Summer Fun'. 

I'm off out in to the {recently more rare} sunshine today with my friend, Claire. Bit of a first for me as we are going to support her husband in a local reinactment thing. Doubt we'll see much of it though, probably too busy chin-wagging! Whatever you're up to today, I hope you have a great time ~♥~
