Dies and punches at Crafts and Me

******Do you fancy a crafty get away? I am arranging one for October this year and there are still spaces. Click HERE for details******

It is time for another great  Crafts and Me challenge this time we want you to get using your dies and punches so it is nice and easy :D
Our Sponsor this week is Sweetpea stamps

The Prize is a $20 Gift Card how great is that!!

For my card I have used Cordelia and glossy blue flat backed oval pearls  from the Crafts and me store. And I have coloured Cordelia with the following pro markers....

Skin: Saffron, Vanilla
Hair: Gold, Canary, Lemon
Tail: Grass, leaf green
Shells and pearls: Putty just for shadow

The background I have done some embossing again using a bubble embossing folder from Darice which I have then inked to make it stand out more. The die I used is from Marianne D and is called Branch garden.

I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Kraftin' Kimmie - For Mom (This is to say thank you for all my Mum has done for me lately)
Creative craft challenges - Anything goes
Try it on Tuesday - On the beach
