Hi all, I am a tad late posting my DT card but I do have a very good reason, my mum came last night to stay with me for the weekend, normally she would have gone to my sisters but my sis has hurt her back so my brother asked if I could have mum, while I am writing this she is in bed with her little friend Jess, lol, mum loves dogs and Jess is her little angel and a great water bottle.

Anyway here is my DT card for our new challenge that starts today at
the theme is to use
on you project
you must use a stamp or a digi image that you have coloured yourself no pre-coloured images or computer generated designs are allowed 
For my card I have used one of my new Elisabeth Bell clear stamps called, Candy's Christmas Candle, I have coloured her with Copics then mounted her onto both gold and pink card, the papers are Bearly Mine, I added lace, pearls, stamped sentiment, die cut gold mirror card branches and punched gold mirror card snowflakes, the bow is wide organza ribbon to which I added a large cabochon pearl, I also added glitter to the candle.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
ADDICTED TO STAMPS are also having a DT call full details on the challenge blog.

I am afraid I will not be able to visit anyone for a little while I have just found a leak in my kitchen that I have to get fixed I only noticed it this morning but it looks like it has been a little while that the water has been dripping, my cupboard and floor are very wet so i have to try and get that dry, I am also trying to get someone to come out and fix it, please accept my apologies I hope that you will bear with me yet again xxxx

This is such an adorable card Lorraine. I love the image and you have coloured her beautifully, especially the folds in the dress. The pretty background panels add texture and contrast to the card and I love the abundance of pearls you have used too.
Take care and enjoy your weekend with your mum.
