Braided Sweetie


I'm ever so slightly late with this post, for some reason I had it in my little head that I was due to make my card for the 
Anything Goes with an Image challenge at The Ribbon Girl
next Sunday....oooops!
I'm not normally so confused but last week was fairly stressful, including an interview for the job that I've been doing for the last year! I'm pleased to say that I was successful, so that's one less worry lol!

Sooooo there was a lot of blue air and a very busy me yesterday getting everything ready in time. I got my card made, photographed and blogged in good time yesterday, but forgot to hit publish after I scheduled here, so I'm a couple of hours later than normal.

Anyhooo....on to the part you're here for, the card.

I used one of the new releases from Whimsy Stamps called Braided Sweetie, from our new artist 
Kirsten Winkelbauer isn't she pretty?

Not my best colouring unfortunately as I was in a mega rush, but I do like the finished card.

I used the following distress ink markers:
Vintage Photo, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Spun Sugar, Picked Raspberry, Bundled Sage, Mowed Lawn, Black Soot.

I've listed all my products used below, with links for most.
