Charlie and some sneak peaks

Have you heard the news? Emily is have a GINORMOUS release next week!  If you want some sneak peaks head on over to Bloggabella and take a looky see! I'm so excited - Uptown girls, looks like a new Christy Croll image and flowers - omg I love flowers - bring them on - I can't wait.

For this weeks challenge we thought we would honor St. Patrick's day and use GREEN on your card.
I had this cute image sitting on my desk just waiting to see colour.  This is Charlie - one of the many green bean baby images by Ella.
I stamped him on bella's bestest paper and paired him up with some MME - Fly a Kite. I coloured the image with copics and shaded with pencils.  This layout I used is from this weeks MFTWSC63.
It fit perfectly with my image, so this card came together fairly quickly.  I added the fence - punched a piece of kraft cardstock using MS fence border punch, and then sponged some brushed corduroy distress ink on it.
For the clouds on the image, I just cut a piece of paper in the shape of clouds and then used this as my template, and sponged the clouds on.  I think it really adds to the image.  I also added some Barbara Trombley's elements called earth textures to the bulrushes. I'm not sure what it is made out of, but it  smells like nutmeg.  Finished with a some glitter and green ribbon.

Now I know you would like to win some bella bucks to spend on next weeks release, so hop over to bloggabella and leave a comment on today's submissions.

Next weeks challenge is sketch #6- see below. If you play along you can email Emily by thursday night or upload it on SCS and use the keyword BELLARIFFIC1112.  $20 up for grabs ladies!!

 Thanks for coming by today, have a great weekend!

Lovely Pauline!! LOVE the bright red pail and the picket fence along the bottom - this is a very bright springy card - perfect for our weather this week! His hair is fab and I love the soft shading of the grass and sky that blend together perfectly!
