Good morning friends,
Winter is certainly approacjing fast here in South Africa. Have had some chilly days 15deg. with some rain...which is not normal now..
Also a big welcome to my new followers..hope you enjoy what you see and it is always good to hear what you please leave me some comments.

We are having a bloghop at DS4J to launch our NEW store and challenge blog Why not come along and join in the fun...lots of prizes to be won...I hope to see you there.  Some of you may have seen my card, but I want to enter it in a few challenges, so here it is again.

The paper I used is from a pad "Pampered Pets" by Andrea Jayne.
The frame was cut with a Nellie Snellen MFD and the leaves are a Marianne Design die.
The corners were punched with a butterfly punch.
The image is coloured with Aquarelle pencils and Twinkling H20's, cut out and mounted on foam pads.
All the esges were inked with Distress inkpads.
The sentiment was computer generated and I finished off the card with pearls.
This time I also decorated the inside

I am entering the following challenges

Truly Scrumptious Distressing and Die cuts/punches
Deep Ocean Punches/Dies

I hope to see you soon, take care and would love to see you visit our bloghop at DS4J starting  HERE

Gorgeous card and good luck with the challenges. Yes, its kind of strange cold wet weather these days. The electric blankets went on yesterday here. The heaters will probably follow soon.
