Papertake Weekly - Anything goes PLUS a brand new sponsor!

Well....I'm still working on getting back into the swing of things. My sincerest apologies that I haven't visited you!!!  I hope I'll be by to see you within the next couple of days. Since the kids left, I've been trying to get caught up with some DT projects, including doing some things for CHA coming up at the end of the month.  So please be patient with me as I work my way back to my norm.  With it being Tuesday, it's time for a new challenge from Papertake Weekly,  and this week it's "anything goes" with an option of using lace!! AAAAAANNNNND....we have a new sponsor, Lili of the Valley!!!  We're all so excited! I just wish I could enter to win! LOL!

To celebrate our first sponsorship, I used this adorable image called "Time for a Cuppa". I love it!!! It's colored with Copic markers and cut out using Nesties. I decided to use the optional lace, but made it out of paper with a Martha Stewart border punch. The papers are from Nitwit Colelctions and the flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts with some added Stickles around the edges.

Colors for Copic markers are: (yes...I actually wrote them down!!)
R11, 12, 14, 17
YG21, 23, 25
face: E02, 01, and 000
hair: E21, 25
T1, T2 for shading on the white

Please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see the gorgeous creations the DT has for your viewing pleasure this week. And then we'd love it if you'd grab your paper and glue and play along with us for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Lili of the Valley!!

I am entering this card into the Lili of the Valley New Beginnings challenge! It's my very first LOTV card, and I'm looking forward to many more! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
