Just Bright and Zingy

I'm nearly back in my comfort zone, fine with the colours but I always struggle with Magnolia images for some reason. Soooo, here's my card for Just Magnolia this week where the challenge is 'Bright and Zingy'.



I used one of Dawny's fab sketches from Papertake, her sketches are always so good to work with. Creative Card Crew want to see a card for a baby or a child and Creative Inspirations theme is a special card with numbers on.



This is a very special card as it's actually from Zac to his 'girlfriend' Aimee who as the much fancied older woman is the grand old age of two soon! A whole few weeks older than Zac!

I hope it's bright and zingy enough for you. I shaded Tilda with ProMarkers and an Inkssentials pen - no Glamour Dust - I forgot to use some. The sweetie background is DCWV as are the lollipop heads I cut out and mounted on coloured card. The sweetie by the sentiment is Doodlebug as is the glittery pink scalloped strip.

As it's such a special card I thought I'd better decorate the inside too:



Both my boys are still suffering in the nappy department and I sound like an old man who smoked camel non filters all his life with this flippin' cough that won't leave me alone! House full of germs we are. Hubby is taking the day off tomorrow to look after us all and let me get a bit of rest.

Hope you are all lurgy free.
