Pollycraft Monday - Card and Matching Tag

Good morning!  It's Monday!  You knew that though right?  You're probably at work like me, but Monday blues can't get me down today.  I'm excited because my sister in law and her husband and sweet baby girl are coming to visit us here in Greece tomorrow!  Yay!  I have lots of housework to do, but it's for a great cause!

Anyone looking for the winner of my 100 follower blog candy giveaway will have to wait a bit longer... I'll be back tonight to post that (once the house is clean and the pantry is stocked).

Thanks so much to all who joined in our sketch challenge at Pollycraft last week!  I promise I will be back around to comment on my share of the entries later tonight (I'm a bit behind this week)!  Our challenge for you today at Pollycraft Monday chosen by the lovely Lynsey is to make a Card and a matching Tag!   Head on over to the challenge blog to check out my teamies' fabulous creations! 

Our sponsor this week is the sweet Emma of Crafty Emma's Store and she will be giving the lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend in store.

Here's my card and tag using Celeste Amberglow - Owl Always Love You:

The papers are from Authentique and the seam binding ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The bling is by Prima and the brad is from Crate Paper.  The sentiment is from Amy R Summer Sentiments.  I coloured both images at the same time with copics (shoes on one, shoes on the other etc...).  I think they turned out pretty similar!

Here's a close-up of Celeste:
And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Paper Players: Tic Tac Toe (I chose Square Card, Ribbon and Designer Paper)

That's it from me today!  I hope you can join us this week at Pollycraft!

Morning Arabella, just been catching up on your cards - fabulous as always!

You know I think your colouring is amazing but I'm not sure I say very often how brilliant your paper choices are as well!! Well they are, amazingly brilliant. You're even tempting me away from my pastelly soft (or wishy-washy as they've been called!) choices.

Right I think I'm off to dig out some bright colours - will suit the bright sunshine we've finally got here!

Have a lovely week honey!
