Sunny days

Found a new challenge blog - Dare U 2 Digi - and their third challenge is to make cards in pink and green using a digital image. I went a bit over the top and made a set of six!

I used various bits of pink and green card and paper including Doodlebug in Bubblegum and Limeade. The Frog images are 'Hoppy Wishes' from Pink Petticoat. The lovely die cut shape in the centres are cut using the Noteworthy card on The Slice, which I'm pleased to say I'm starting to use a lot now.
All images are coloured with Pro-Markers and finished with Glamour Dust. I didn't realise until I'd finished that I'd used a different white card to normal and the colours and glitter haven't taken so well.

A bit of 'cuttlebugging' later, some ribbon and buttons and of course some glitter gems and they're done. Thankfully a gorgeous sunny day today for taking half decent photos.
Thanks for the challenge, I'll be joining in again!
