CDAC Challenge

Good morning folks, my card share today is for the new challenge over at Crafters Digital Arts Centre using this beautiful freebie from the sponsor Shelley's images. Do pop over and have a look at the challenge as this is such a beautiful image and you get the lovely sentiment too! 

I've used kraft card for the base card and for matting and layering. The image is coloured with promarkers, cut out and liberally sprinkled with glamour dusts. I've moutned the image over some die cut nesties and used one of Tim's vintage backing papers. I've added some pretty laee and seam binding ribbon from the Funkie Junkie boutique and added some spellbinders die cut cherry blossoms with little faux pearl centres, this is the first time I've used this die and I just love it!!
Here's a close up of the image, i've used panpastels in permanent red tint and white for distressing, they give a lovely delicate colour. 

I'm also entering this card in the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts: anything goes
Crafty Calendar: what's new?
Dream Valley: girls, girls, girls
Ribbon Girls: pink and ivory
Stampin for the weekend: something girlie

I hope you're having a good week. I usually love the snow but I'm getting a wee bit miffed as we've got a covering of snow but not enough to have a few days off work lol. Still I shouldn't complain. At least this week is whizzing by, hopefully by the time  I leave work I'll be able to squint and see the weekend in the distance. Have a good day and stay warm and cosy if you can 
thanks for popping by
