.. goodbye...

Hi there... so today marks my last card posting for Bizzy Becs Challenges...
-insert sad face here...
 I feel its the right time for me to move on after 2 or so years and let some one else with some fresh ideas take over, so I am officially handing over the DT coordinator role to the lovely Karen (DT) who will do an awesome job...
I have enjoyed every moment and Bec (owner) and the BB DT girls are just sooo amazing and the most gorgeous girls I have had the pleasure of creating along side of..
Thankyou girls, xxx

So onto my card.. 
I used Lawn Fawn Stamps- Blissful Botanicals and Flutter By. I stamped the images onto Vellum, white embossed them and then Fussy cut them out..
I then used masking tape to created some stripes and using a paintbrush painted on Distress Inks- Evergreen Bough in between.
 I then used the same colour and added some spatters..
along with a few matching sequins and  a sentiment.

no talking

 Hey there.. This is a digital image from Mo Manning...
This cuppa she is holding is hot chocolate/ milo because I don't drink coffee or tea- and don't like the smell of anything coffee related- never seen what all the fuss is about, hehehe.
I masked off the image after colouring with my copics and then stamped in a Darkroom Door Stamp- called Coffee Stains in Memento London Fog ink.
The sentiment is one I have had for ages..
