A card for Elphine House's First Challenge!!

Have you visited the new Elphine House Shop or Blog yet? They are an Australian based online company selling Elisabeth Bell Stamps and the first six images are just gorgeous.
And this is one of them:

This is Yummy Pudding!! Isn't she just gorgeous!! I fell in love with her the minute I saw her!! I actually won this stamp through a giveaway on Elisabeth Bell's Blog..
So I specifically made this card for Elphine House's first challenge - Lace it Up! I chose the papers first again, these papers are from Kaszazz, then I coloured in Yummy Pudding with my Tria's. I was really happy with my colouring this time!! I'm slowly learning how to colour but I still don't get the whole thinking where the light would hit!! I love to colour and I love how my images turn out and although I've been overlooked for DT positions because my colouring isn't as good as others I think I'll just stick to how I feel and enjoy my colouring rather than trying to please others!!
I  decided to follow the sketch over at Elisabeth Bell's World for this card, thought it was a great sketch to work with!! I of course added a few extra things onto my card but I followed the basic sketch! I used Lace and added my flowers that I made and some rhinestones and to finish it off I used my new ticket digi stamps that I won over at Emerald Faerie Garden. Thanks Deb!! It finished off the card just perfect!!!

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
* Elphine House - Lace it Up
* Elisabeth Bell's World - Sketch
* The Emerald Faerie Garden Challenges - All things Nice (Girly)
* Craft us Crazy - Anything  Goes
* Crafts and Me - Add a Flower

Until next Time...Enjoy!! xx
