Senior love ... side by side

I'd often thought of buying Mo Manning's 'Jack and Ginger' - well, I gave in ... and I'm glad I did - it's beautiful - I got the digital version direct from Mo's digital pencil shop. I've used the colours of blue and brown for Passion for Promarkers 103 - of course, I coloured with Promarkers - this is also for Off the wall 54:

I used the sketch for Pixie cottage 72:

The card blank is stardream, so it has a sparkle to it, the background paper is a V & A linen one. I embossed with corner hearts with a cuttlebug embossing folder (the four were in one design, so I cut them out individually), the glittery wired ribbon has been in my stash for ages and also the little flowers and gems - the little flowers are a lacy material.

This card is for Color dare 103 'very tempting pears' - to use very vanilla, tempting turquoise and pear pizzazz.

And on Crazy 4 challenges 90 there is this photo inspiration - I've chosen to concentrate on the bottom part:

The image was cut from the bottom right corner of a 12 z 12 DCWV paper from their Mariposa stack - this is for 365 cards day 82 'caught in a corner' (yes, I'm still catching up with some of the old challenges). I distressed the edges with shabby shutters and a slight hint of stormy sky DIs.

The main background paper is majolaine hazelnut dacquoisa (lol! notice that it has my 'hazelnut' name on it) and the strip across the bottom and the sentiment were cut from a piece of We R MK vintage blue.
