Serious problem "Brain Freeze"!!!

Hi everyone hope you all had a great long Bank Holiday! Its all the same to me but I did enjoy the extra time with my DH and the Jubilee celebrations on TV especially getting to watch the concert with Robbie and of course Sir Paul McCartney who I knew all the songs which my DH couldn't believe said I wasn't old enough but dare I say I've always loved the Beatles!!!

Not done much crafting so today I thought I would crack on with some DT work and OMG I have Brain Freeze well that's if there is actually one in there!!!

So to try and Kick start it I thought I would play along with D'Arcy's Diaries - Menu Theme.

Love this image she looks so absorbed and so serene. Coloured her with my pro markers as always.

 While looking through the blogs last night I had a light bulb moment!! I purchased this beautiful trellis months ago and I have never used it so out it came today thought it was just a perfect backdrop.
  Used some lush flat backed pearls on the trellis and loving the papers they are Tilda and from a 12 x 12 pad.

Assortment of yummy flowers, a Marriane flourish die, pearl leaves and stamen.

Side View of card where you can also see the ribbon and bling.

Challenges I am entering:

D'Arcy's Diaries - Menu Starter - Pink and Green, Main - Birthday, Dessert - Ribbon, 2 Side Orders - Pearls and Flowers.
I Love Pro markers - For a little girl
Truly Scrumptious - Flower Power
Simon Says - Crown or Gems obviously I went with the lush Green Bling
Tip Top Tuesday - Sparkle
Try it Tuesday - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - PPMC42 Bling
Cutie Pie Challenge - Dies & Punch's (Flourish Die and Small Retro Punch)
Saturdays Challenge - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Swirls & Flourishes
Zoe Bunny - Anything Goes

Well that's all for today I really must try to sort out my DT work or there will be trouble.

Will be over later to look at your beautiful creations.

Love and Hugs Chanelle xxx
