I'm a trier!!!!....

You can't say I haven't tried,lol!!!
This is my card for the Pollycraft DT call,using the papers that should be green & brown,I know,nothing like them,mine are orange & lemon!!! (you never know what you are gonna get with ebay ink,lol!!!!)
Last night the luvly Paula from Pollycraft saw my post about my struggles & said it was ok to go ahead with the papers regardless of the colours,AWWWWW,How kind,bless her,MWAH!!!!X
So here is my entry,using all 4 papers,I even cut out some of the leaves from 1 sheet & stuck them around the image.I used the Reflection stamp & coloured her with Distress Inks.
Right off to enter my card & sit with everything crossed for a few days,haha!!!! TFL :o)xxx

Oh Diane...
In future I'm only going to buy my inks from ebay...the papers look better in orange!!lol!
Its absolutely gorgeous, and I love the extra leaves!!
Brilliant!! and actually it was hubbys idea about the papers, he said we didnt state that they had to remain the same colour, just that you had to use them!! I'm not clever enough to come up with that!
Well done!!

Hi Diane, well even though it was a mistake the colours of the papers are lovely. The leaves around the circle are brilliant (I bet they were a nightmare to cut out!!). Lovely image. Good luck, hugs, Denise x
