From me to you

Last night - about 8.30 pm - I heard a noise outside the front door.  I thought it was a person crying - upon investigation, it was a possum, or rather three possums, having a fight.  Two ran away but one stayed on the fence and allowed me to photograph him! Cute huh! He was young and healthy.


I made a card today but am not happy with it.  It is for Annabelle Stamps sketch with bling challenge, but I not happy with it. However, I will also enter it into Crop Stop #21 challenge - Complimentary Colours. 


I should have stamped the numbers strip in blue but I did it in black Momento ink as is the sentiment. The yellow card is stamped with Peach Parfait ink and Pacific Blue for the three parcels. The embossing folder is Lovers Lane by Country Companions.  The stamps used were all from Annabelle Stamps - two background sets and Swingin' By, which is coloured with Copics.  The scalloped strip is from a piece of stash card. Some ribbon and three sprinkles onto a base of cream. The main card is Barely Banana (old stock) and the yellow is Daffodil Delight. All the other card and ink is from Stampin'Up!

Well I love your card Susan! The colours are great and all co-ordinate beautifully, and I love that you used the background stamps to create your own patterns!
