Hey Girl

Hi and good morning to everyone.
today's share is in conjunction with lili of the valley's facebook challenge (facebook link available above) and the challenge runs up to the 15th June 6:00 pm (uk time). lots of lovely prizes to be won and this months theme challenge is sport.
so onto my card:
as we are now approaching summer i've chosen to use the ever so sweet Annabel tennis. my colour medium for my image is distress re-inkers and ive chosen to use a different ink to stamp my image rather than stazon jet black i have used archival ink coffee and i love how it's turned out.
my card design inspiration is thanks to a card i saw over on ldrs (negative cut out from the gilded oval die) and i've kept the card cas style by just stamping around my card edges and adding some coordinating paper behind my main image that has been mounted on 3d foam pads, with a little ribbon and sentiment statement to finish.

onto what i have used:
lili of the valley: Annabel tennis
sentiment stamp: ldrs girl friends sentiments
stempleglede: just a note (flourish part of a senitment stamp)
archival ink: coffee
memento: espresso truffle
distress re-inkers:
vintage photo, tattered rose, spun sugar, aged mahogany, antique linen, twisted citron
gilded oval and stitched circle
polka dot ribbon

the first card i ever made using annabel tennis
