Good Morning,
It seems to have been ages since I've blogged as my last 2 posts have been scheduled far in advance  due to hospital appointments & treatments. This is also scheduled but only written over the last couple of days.
 I am here today with my first challenge with Songbird Challenges.
Not sure if you're familiar with this challenge but each challenge is linked to the name of a song.
This week's song is:
'Dancing Queen'
so we would like to see creations including dancing or a crown or both
This week's fabby sponsor is Saturated Canary who is offering the winner 2 digis of their choice
Krista kindly gave the DT members an image of their choice, I chose the wonderful Zorana a dancing gypsy girl, isn't she just a cutie!
I coloured the image in with Copics & chalks. The backing papers are from Raspberry Road  'Timeless Victorian' collection.
The crown was cut out on the silhouette in kraft card to match the mats. I then added a bit of frantage for a bit of interest & an excuse for me to have a bit of a play!!!
The bunting was aslo cut on the silhouette in kraft which I added frantage to and in white with small crowns cut out of which I coloured with copics to match the image.
Cream lace was added along with some flowers for that finishing touch.

Hop on over to the main challenge blog for some super inspiration from the established DT team and the 5 Newbies (of which I am one). Then get crafting and join in this week's super themed challenge.



  1. Gorgeous card Carole - beautiful image and fabulous details.
    Hope all has gone well at the hospital.

  2. Hi Carole, your card is beautiful! Zorana looks fabulous coloured in the lovely soft shades you have chosen. So pleased to have you on the team!

  3. Oh Carole, that's sooo pretty! I've got that image as well, but have been too cowardly to try and colour it yet!!

    Love your colours.


  4. Wow this is gorgeous Carole!!… she's a real sweetie and I love your soft colouring… the papers and embellies are very pretty… I love the bunting, flowers and lace!

    Love and hugs
