Missing you!


Hubby and I are rarely apart, but next time we are, I'm going to send him this card that uses the wonderful 50's Lilith from Tickled Pink Stamps. I made it today for the following challenges:
Lil Lolita Boutique - sketch for challenge 12
Fashionist Friday - pale blue, mid green and dark green
Pile It On - Goodbye/missing you card
Crazy 4 Challenges - lattice
Bee Crafty - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - no die cuts or punches. I know digital cards don't actually use any bladed instrusments anyway, but I made sure that there were no fancy shapes in this one that would have had to be cut with a die cut or punch, it's all stright edges and right angles :)
Corrosive Challenges - For the guys
Stampin' Royalty - Mostly monochrome
Etsy Inspired Challenges - be inspired by something from The Caged Fairy I was spoiled for choice, as I love the funky bits in here, but in the end I narrowed it down to using the colours and flowers from this piece, the fleur de lis (fleur de lisses?) from here and here, and the skulls from this piece, this piece, this piece, and this piece.
