Another One of Those Just For Fun Cards!

Morning Peeps I won't say good as the weather is far from it here! I can't believe how it changes from day to day, no two days are the same lately!

I'm back with a card I made for the fun of it again - whoa steady on that's two I've made now this year!! I really liked the 'Mood Board' inspiration photo for the latest challenge at Saturated Canary and wanted to make something with those fab colours so here it is!

You'll have to excuse the dark photo, it's such a miserable grey day here.
I've used the super sweet 'Turtle Love' from Krista and coloured with copics. The papers are Kaiser Craft 'Utopia' and were a perfect match for their challenge. Lots of WOC flowers and my new Doo Hickey feather dies from Sir Stampalot
I took another pic with the tag out

Equally as grey and miserable lol
Half way through making it I decided it would be perfect for my friends Granddaughter so I added her name is Stickers, luckily I had a perfect colour match!!

That's it from me today, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend

Love 'n' Hugs Laurie xx

Ooooh Laurie - how fabuloous is this??? Major fabuloous is what!!

Love your colours and embellies ('specially that feather die, I'm off a look for it now) and your colouring is perfect.

Strange how life goes, ain't it, I'm half way through a 'just for no reason' card as well - feels very strange, but quite nice as well!!

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Oh Wowzer!!! this is gorgeous Laurie!! what a beauty she is and your colouring is awesome my friend!! I love those wonderful lush papers and Wow! the embellies are absolutely stunning… the flowers are very scrummy and the fab feathers are perfect! Ooh those feathers would be much easier to arrange than real ones… :-))
I once made a huge mistake of trimming some pink feathers during heatwave… I had my tower fan on full blast… looked like I'd murdered a bl**dy flamingo!!! RoFL
Big hugs
