Under the weather

I decided to bite the bullet so to speak and have a go at making a step ladder card. It went slightly wrong as I made my first cut a bit wide si decided to make it a one sided ladder card, but it was quite a happy accident as I'm happy with the result.

I decided I'd have a go at the picture challenge at Penny's challenge. I love this kind of picture and thought it might be fun. The colouring bit was easy and just had to add glossy accents to her boots and puddle too. I found it hard to work out how to place her on this card, one day I'll plan a whole card instead of making it up as I go along, but not yet. I have kepy it simple but have a new fad, I love daisies and have found I can make them so easily with my new mini punch and sizzix die, but the larger flowers aren't so easy to use on my style of card but I am determined to adapt so I can use them. Saying that I've only got baby daises on this card.

I plan on entering it for the following challenges:-

Penny's challenges-picture inspiration and DT call too
Bunny Zoe's- nice and girly
Tuesday morning sketches-step ladder card
Treehouse Thursday-favourite tool (promarkers and new daisy punch at the mo)
Charisma-all about bling (on this card less is more I think)
Pixie Dust challenge-red,black ,white and or silver
Crafty catz-shaped card
Crazy4challenges- paper flowers
