Basic Grey Challenge #20 and Kimmie's Birthday Challenge

Here is my take on the sketch over at Basic Grey this week.
I have used BG Euphoria for this card. These are not the colours that I would usually pick to work with - hence the reason these were the pages that were left in the pad, but I really like these now that I have finished the card. The stamp is one of my favourites and is from Pink Cat Studios as is the sentiment. Coloured with promarkers, flowers are prima and all embelishments from my stash.

Kimmie is having a birthday celebration week and will have all sorts of challenges and candy throughout the week. Today's challenge is to make a card with purple on it, so I think this card will fit the bill. Pop over to Kimmie's blog to see some really inspirational work and check out her Birthday celebration.

We have no snow here as yet - think we must be about the only part of the country that has none, but we do have some forcast for tonight and tomorrow.

Thanks for looking.

Cute card Karen. Love the image and the colours look great too! We have had lots of snow here in Leeds and still coming down heavy. Probably about 10 inches! Not good for driving in!

A wonderful card Karen. Love the papers and the image is so cute. Great colouring and embellishments. Hope you don't get too much snow when it does come, we've got a lot of ice here now which isn't good after the initial 'it's great to get snow' of yesterday LOL! Chris x
