All Sorts Challenge - 3-2-1 Recipe

Hi friends... hope you've all had a restful Sunday.  I couldn't wait to make a card with my new Ladybug and Friends stamp, Hello Sunshine, which I ordered through Paola's Paper Haven.  Aren't they just too adorable.  I made this card for my sister, whose birthday is only in May... hey, you know how the months just creep up on us... lol  I'm busy going through my calendar and making my family and friend's birthday cards now already. 

Fortunately this one fitted the recipe over at the All Sorts Challenge blog which I like visiting.  Their recipe calls for you to make a card using 3 of something, 2 of something and 1 of something.  Well... I have used 3 brads, 2 hearts and 1 image on this card.

 The base of my card is a gorgeous chocolate brown (I love my browns...lol) and the DP is from AC, Merrymint Liquorice.  Also gorgeous, have had it for ages and first time I am using it.  Has some glitter to it.  The image was coloured in with my Copics. I think with the additional copics purchased through Paola, the blending is working out perfectly.  To all my visitors, thanks so much for all the compliments.  It really encourages me to lift my game.  The rose is a newby from Charmaine's shop and fits my colour scheme perfectly.

Here's a little glimpse of the inside of the card.  I have yet to write my message, but as it's still early days, will do so closer to the time.

Thanks so much for visiting me once again.  Your comments mean a lot to me, so thanks for taking the time to leave them.  I wish you a super week, wherever you are and look forward to meeting up with you again soon.  Huge hugs and blessings, Sharon
