These are a few of my favourite things.

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens!  Now I can't get the Sound of Music song out of my head, I shall  play at being  Maria all day now!  The talented Sarah is now a DT member of the Craft your Days Away Challenge Blog and the challenge this week is Favourite Things.  My favourite seems to be Vintage, I love soft and muted tones of papers and flowers and script images.    This card is for my Mother in Law whose birthday it will be very soon.

The inspiration for this card came from Antonia's Attic and the gorgeous card Toni made.  I've used an 8" square card to show off the gorgeous paper from a pad called Ella Bleu.  The image is from a Clarity Stamps and I wanted all the tones to be muted like the paper so I've stamped her in brown onto blue card from DCWV Linen Closet and embossed her with some Gelly Powder that is supposed to have a coffee scent..  The roses are from my stash and Wild Orchid Crafts.  Sentiment is from Craftworks Cards.

I'd like to enter this card into the following
