Beautiful Dreamer.....

Hello folks!

I'm so glad I managed to make a card for this week's MDUC Challenge as there's such a gorgeous picture to use for inspiration.... it has something of an oriental feel to me which has been reflected by my choice of image and foliage..... and I think some of the DT were thinking along the same lines ;o)

I've used a mix of different papers.... MME, Basic Grey.... and Kay&Co for the I inked up a Magnolia sentiment too. Now I'm always reluctant to step outside the comfort zone but when I saw today's new challenge over at Fussy and Fancy Friday I thought I'd take the plunge.... their brief is to try out a 'New Technique' and I've been wanting to have a go at a centre step card for ages.... and in the end it wasn't that tricky, lol!

The die cuts are from a lovely Sizzix Decorative Strip die I've had for a while now.... aren't those lovebirds sweet?!! Infact I think I can join in with Stampavie and More where the latest challenge is 'Love'..... oh and I urge you to check out Cupcake Inspirations for another divine photo.... I took my inspiration from the colours and those delish rolled roses.... well you know I struggle to make a card without them now, don't you?! Hee Hee!

I hope you all have a fab weekend and hopefully I'll be back in the next day or so to show you something else.... I'm on a crafty roll this week ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
