Had a bit of a disaster yesterday went to petrol station yesterday and filled my baby up (my baby being my Peugeot 307 convertible) with petrol, which is fine cept it's a diesel car. Big Oops, it had to be picked up and taken to the garage today where it is waiting to have its engine cleaned out and I am waiting for the dreaded bill!!! (Add insult to injury I filled the car right up)

So to cheer myself up I thought I would make a card for the Cute Daisy May Challenge, hasn't really worked cos I don't like it now I have done it - think i'm gonna have to hit the chocolate instead.

Anyway I coloured this Cute Daisy May image with Tattered Rose Distress Inks and added some to the edges to take off the whiteness of the CS. I then decided that I didn't have any papers that matched and computer still playing up, so thought I would make my own. I used Terracotta and White Pearl Alcohol Inks on white shiny CS and acetate. I then embossed the acetate in my swirly cuttlebug folder.

Added flowers from Donna that I coloured with the Tattered Rose and added some pearls.

  4. Hi Beccy, well I don't know why you don't like it, I think it's lovely, the inking looks fab and it's all sort of soft and pretty.
    Bad news about your car, I once poured windscreen wash into the radiator of mine, that was a mistake...
    Choccy always helps

  5. I don't think your picture does your card justice, which is sometimes the case, I clicked for a closeup. The detail is amazing I love the effects, the Daisy image is coloured so well , it reminds me of snow white. Thanks for joining the daisy challenge. janex
