Another "Blanche"

Sometimes you get an image or stamp that you cant stop using....I love Saturated Canary's "Blanche".  Lots of digis are very cutsey/cute and suitable for young girls/teens but Blanche is another creature altogether.  I like to imagine that she has just divorced husband No 3 and is off to socialise and get her claws into Mr. B No 4!
Here is a "Blanche" card I made for a friend's 50th birthday and forgot to blog at the time...
Coloured with Copics, background made with Anja Ovals die, added some gardenias and a bit of gold net for her wrap.  Glitter is Stickles Fruit Punch. 
Entering this is Totallypapercrafts "Divas" challenge No 167.

Mid Month reminder

Yes, we are half way through May and time to remind you of By the Cute and Girly's "Flowers" challenge which is open until the end of this month.  Details of the challenge, prize, sponsor etc HERE
Now for my (very quick and easy) card.
Background is made with Papermania "Nostalgia" paper with Spellbinders Romantic rectangles and Detailed scallop dies.
The flowers are Memory Box Hollyhocks with little gems added and the lace butterfly is one of my own snippets.  
"Flowers" is a lovely easy challenge theme and this will be our last challenge before BTC&G take a summer break.

"Flowers" challenge at By the Cute and Girly.

For our May challenge we would like to see you use some flowers on your creation.  QKR Stampede are our sponsors and I used their digi image "Flower Bouquet" to make my card.  I printed out the image several times in different sizes, coloured, cut out and combined different layers to make this card.  Yes, I like to make things complicated for myself!
To see the rest of the Design Teams creations please go to the BTC&G challenge blog where you can find details of how to enter the "Flowers" challenge.
Now, BTC&G challenges will be taking a bit of a rest but we hope to be back in a few months with new challenges for you. 
Please excuse my late post re May's challenge but I have been very busy over the last week....hope to catch up with everything over the Bank Holiday weekend.
Happy Crafting everybody!
