Digital Tuesday dt and an Inky sneak peek

Hope you have all had a fab long weekend! My kids are still off school today as it's an inservice day, then they go back tomorrow and my 2 girls are off on Thursday again because their school is a polling station!...Is there any point putting them to school this week!!? lol
I must admit I have enjoyed not having to get up for school though and I am dreeading tomorrow morning because I know they won't want to get up for school either!

It's time for another challenge over at Digital Tuesday and this week Sandy is the hostess and want to see Ribbon AND Lace on our cards.
Our sponsor this week is Digital Delights who also gave the design team some images to work with for the challenge.

 I have used Penny and her teddy from Digital Delights and coloured her with the usual Promarkers (list underneath image pic) and a white Sakura gelly Roll pen for the highlights.

Promarker colours-: Skin- oatmeal, blush baby pink for cheeks. Hair- tan, raw sienna, burnt sienna, cocoa.
Clothes- pinks-- baby pink, cocktail pink, rose pink, -- greens- meadown green, leaf green.
Shoes- tan, cinnamon, cocoa. Teddy Bear- tan, cinnamon

 The stripey paper is Bo Bunny, but I am not sure about the green strip, it was in my scrap box with no name on it.
The lace and ribbon part was easy for me, I just threaded some satin ribbon through some lace, both from my stash, and job done :)

The flower is one I got from my DT teamie geraldine at By The Cute and Girly, you can find these crotchet flowers in her Little Snippets Etsy Store here. and the leaves are cut with a Marianne designs die that I got the other day.

Now I also have a sneeky peek to show you of my card that I made for the Inky Impressions Inspiration blog which is on the blog today.
I just realsed that I have used the Lili's Prayer image again on this card ........I have used other images on my Inky cards, but I have been getting up to date with all my DT work and made a lot of cards in advance, and it has just worked out that when I have posted dt projects, I have used the same image 3 times in a row....oops.
I only have 3 Inky Impressions stamps just now, so I really must get some ordered so I don't do that again.....ok that's just my excuse so I can buy some of these sweet stamps :)

It is a really cute image though, so you can't really blame me for over inking her :) I haven't added the Promarker colours over on the inspirations blog, so I will write them here.

Skin- oatmeal, blush, baby pink, Eyes-powder blue Hair- ivory, vanilla, canary, tulip yellow. All Pink  bits on clothes and Shoes-baby pink, cocktail pink, rose pink....t-shirt-canary, tulip yellow.....trousers-pastle blue, powder blue, denim.

Some Prima's and roses from Janlynn.com and a sparkly We R Memory Keepers flourish.
Ok that's all you are getting to see, you will have to hop over to the Inspirations blog to see the full card :)

Thanks for stopping by.

The card for DT is great. The image you chose is so cute. The way you laced the ribbon into the lace was such a good idea and the flower is a perfect match. Would have loved to see the whole 2nd card. The image is so cute.
