Dare Devil...

I'm back!! been missing for a few days as I have had my mum-in-law visiting for this last week and so no access to my craft room for me :0)

Thought I'd try a couple of challenges today so I have combined the sketch from A Spoonfull of Sugar with the colour combo of 'grass & canary' from Passion for Promarkers.

I must admit I have struggled with this card! I love the sketch and the coloured image but just could'nt find any papers etc. to match!!

The cute skater boy is from Squiggle Stamps and I have coloured him in the following -
Skin - ivory & blush
Hair - cinnamon
Outfit - grass, canary, emerald & sunflower and I have outlined in cool grey #2

I have used a coloured card blank from DCWV along with the papers I managed to find searching through my stash!!! I have embossed the star with swiss dots in the cuttlebug and finished by adding a couple of brads and some faux stitching. The 'daredevil' sentiment is a clear sticker from DCWV :0)

Do check out the Squiggle Blog for some new sneaky peeks of upcoming stamps to the range, they are fabulous!! I love Princess Daisy :o)

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking xx

Hi Jenny
Some gorgeous cards since I last visited. Love those santas with the penguins. This isn't my fave colour combo but you have made it work. I really like this card and of course the Squiggles images are fab. Marianne x
