Do the conga

Here is a card ive made using Humphrey's corner birthday conga, ive had this stamp set for a long long while but have never inked it up, i think it felt a little neglected as this afternoon it fell off my shelf, i think it wanted inking up so who was i to say no!

I had no idea where this card was leading i just coloured it then chose my papers which is the opposite from what i would usually do, i normally always chose the papers first then colour the image to match.

The papers used are a combination of websters pages and My Minds Eye, edged in spun sugar distress ink. The image was coloured using promarkers, the added flowers are a selection from wild orchid crafts, the tickets are Tim Holtz that ive crumpled and inked. ive also added a few pearls and lots of dew drops to form a swirl. As always its all edged with diamond stickles as are the balloons and confetti.

Im entering this card into the ribbon girl challenge - pink orange and aqua, ive used these colours in my colouring and some of the papers.

I had a lovely early finish from work today and had intended going craft shopping but hubby was waiting for me to go grocery shopping and by the time we got home i was wet hungry and tired so that put paid to my fun shopping, not to worry im off on Saturday so i have rearranged to pay suzicraft a visit then.
