DT card and a few challenges....

Hi Everyone, i've got a DT card to show you today for Lyndsey at Lora Crafts. She's doing a demo day on the 20th March- a date to write in your diary if you live in the area: Ashmore Park, Wolverhampton. I' was asked to do a few sample using the gorgeous new products she managed to get at the NEC trade show! Including the fab new Wild Rose Studio and Milton and Ko stamps and papers!! :O)

For my card i've used the fabulous new Wild Rose Sudio Stamp coloured with pro-markers, ( also avaliable to buy ) and We Are Memory Keepers Tiffany Pad.

I didn't add any embellishments because i thought the image spoke for itself! :O)
All it needed was a few silver gems.

I couldn't find a lot of challenges to fit but the Fussy and Fancy Challenge was fun this week: Movies. I think my card is like: Breakfast At Tiffanys- chosen by my dad lol! And One Stop Card Craft Challenges which is optomistically pink.

Well thankyou very much for popping by and taking a look. I really appreciate all your comments and support and for helping me price my last card- your all so kind!! :O)
