Finally, Mary Poppins!

Good morning everyone! I promised I'd be back with my Card Makin' Mamas Inspiration card so without further ado, here it is!

After the first two disasters I had with colouring the image and the ink bleeding outside the lines, I decided to paper pie Mary and I have to say, I really love the final result! I had the perfect paper pad for vintage clothes and as the sheet was double sided I really didn't waste much paper. All materials except the image came from the old stash pile. I hope you like the card, let me know! The CMM challenge theme is 'USE SOMETHING OLD" this time, so dive in your stash and play along, you still have a week to enter! The prize up for grabs is 4 digis of your choice from the Sassy Studio Catalogue; they also provided the DT with their digis to work with.

* White Scalloped base card
* Sassy Studio Mary Poppins digi, paper pieced and coloured with Promarkers
* K&Co Mat Pad and DP from my scrap stash
* Vintage Photo Distress Ink
* RicRac ribbon, pearls and corner peeloffs from my stash
* Computer-generated sentiments

* Fairytale Challenges (The Cinema - Mary Poppins)
* Paper Sundaes (Paper Piecing)
* Simon Says Stamp (Anything Goes)
* My Time to Craft (Favourite Embellishment - Pearls)
* Sassy Cheryl's (Light Blue and Brown)
* Critter Sketch (Use 3 embellishments)
* Mark Finest Papers (Birthday)
* Daisy Doodles (Anything Goes)
* One Stop Craft (Under the Weather - Clouds DP and umbrella)
* Stamp & Create (Anything Goes)

Right, one more busy day at work and then it's the weekend! I will be visiting one of my oldest friends, she has moved into a new house ages ago and we haven't been round to have a look yet! I guess that's what you get when you like so far apart like we do, we live in opposite ends of the Netherlands. But it will be great fun to see them and their little girl. I hope you all enjoy your weekend too! :)
