Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Autumn colours

Morning!

Well I've been busy making cards for October birthdays. I'm a little crafty (literally!) and try to make DT makes & any challenge entries for birthdays (most of my family/friends don't blog!) so that I'm not left with huge piles of cards.  So today I'm sharing a card I've made for a friend, but I've used specific colours so that I can enter it into the Graph It Challenge  as the theme set is Autumn colours. Here's my card - 


This time of year I can see lots of reds & golds outside as the season changes so I chose to use these colours. The image is Saturated Canary & I've coloured her with a mix of Graph It & Copic markers. The background was created using leaves from Stampin'Up stamped with their Raspberry Ripple ink onto Centura Pearl card. I added a ribbon, gold card and Candi along with the gold flowers. A spot of stickles sparkle on her wings finishes it off! 

Here's some close ups - 




This was a different combo for me, but I enjoyed the challenge!
Take care Zo xx
