Photo Inspiration & Banish the Blues

Hooray, it's the weekend, hope you've all had a good week!

I've made a card for the aspoonfullofsugarchallenge and  cutecardthursday challenges.  

A spoon full of sugar's challenge is a photo inspiration - to use red, pink and orange on your card and Cute Card Thursday is for a card to banish the blues using a funny image or sentiment. 

I think this digi image from bugaboostamps fits the bill and I've used orange, pink and red papers, all from Anna Griffin.

The image has been coloured with Prisma pencils and I've added some stitching around the papers for an added effect.

I may as well just pop this card on too, while I'm at it:

I wanted to make a card using some stash that I've had for ages and not got round to using yet.  The stamp is a beautiful background stamp by Anna Griffin, stamped with an Anna Griffin inkpad and then embossed.  The punch I bought from the NEC in November.  The sentiment I bought in the Stampin Up sale.  The brad is from Papermania - again, another kit I've had stashed away for ages. 

Thanks for dropping by and have a good weekend.x
