Blowing Kisses to you

My card today features a new digital stamp by CC Designs, available now from All That Scraps.
Christine has been a very busy girl and there are quite a few new images being showcased on the All That Scraps blog, I'll be showing six or seven of them over the next couple of weeks, starting today with "Blowing Hearts" one of the new Swiss Pixies.
I coloured the image with Copics, adding red Stickles to the hearts and some Diamond Stickles to her hairslide.
I've used the sketch from Totally Papercrafts, love a good sketch - but you knew that, right?
The papers are from Kaisercraft's Made With Love collection, I've had the pad for ages and I'm not sure you can still get it.  It's covered with hearts in all sorts of colours and sizes, The Pink Elephant has Hearts as its challenge this time, so I'm entering there.  
Both the yellow background card and the lilac cardstock I used for matting are from American Crafts, I cut the panel behind the image with Nestabilities Fleur De Lis Rectangles that I got for Christmas (thanks darling). Papertake Weekly has Die "Cute" (clever name ladies) for their challenge; I've used a die and this is cute so I'm in.  The Crafty CalendarCupcake Craft Challenges and Crafty Creations all have "use something new" for their challenge this time, so I'm entering those challenges too.
The ticket sentiment is a digi from Bizzy Becs, it comes on a sheet of 21, all with different sentiments and they're on special at the moment - BARGAIN!!  I just use the crop function in word to isolate out the ones I want to print and fit them into all the little bits of card that would otherwise be wasted when you print your images.  My Time to Craft has Hugs and Kisses as their challenge theme; how much more appropriate can I get, lol.
The flowers are from my stash, with the lighter pink one punched and embossed with a Nellie Snellen punch.  The foliage punch is Pine Branch by Martha Stewart. Digital Tuesday has Punch it Out for their challenge, so I'm in there too.  The purple flower ribbon "cross" between the four foam dotted paper panels is from my stash (it's not really ribbon but I don't know what to call it!), as are the rhinestones, twine and button.
As usual, the inside of the card uses elements from the front.  I used more of the papers, Martha Stewart's Lace Heart edge punch... another Christmas present (thanks Mum and Dad) and a chunky pink button from my stash.
Both Crafty Emma's Store and Bizzy Becs have Anything Goes challenges, so I'm entering there too.
Well that's it for today, don't forget you can pop over to the All That Scraps blog to have a peep at what my digi teamies have made. I'll be back tomorrow with more cuteness, I'd love to have you come back then and see what I've come up with. Until then, Happy Crafting, Donna xx
