The Crazy Challenge - The Sun Is Out!

The Crazy Challenge
This week at The Crazy Challenge our them is THE SUN IS OUT.  Well considering it is August you expect it!! And for once the UK is warm! (well the West Midlands is)

Anyway....... for this weeks challenge we are sponsored by the brilliant Digital Delights who are offering the winner 3 images of their choice!!

I have used Briely and her balloons, but i am not happy with this card. I coloured Briley with promarkers and Zig Wink of Stella pens and then thought i would chalk the sky with my new chalks i brought Saturday, BIG mistake, with out trying them, the blue was alot darker than i expected and instead of being a nice blues sunny day sky, it looks like it was about to rain!!I didn't have time to colour her again so i thought put a bit of yellow in the corner to make it look like the sun was there, hasn't worked!! And to make things worse i got a Martha Stewart Stamping Glitter set, so i thought i would add a couple of birds with black glitter! Well you can see the result yourself!

The Card blank is from Craftwork Card, The backing paper is from the Born to Shop Range.  The flowers are from Ebay and the 'Play' tag is Tim Holtz. The yellow ribbon is from Papermania.

Thank you for looking and i promise i will be back with my Candy winner later!

Actually, you are likely your own worst critic! Your card is lovely, and when you don't point out your "mistakes", nobody notices them -- the sky looks great - the whole card looks great! Nice job.
