Picture perfect ....

.... Good morning.  Well, that's the long weekend over - it went by so fast!  Everything is back to normal today - that means I've got housework to do!  However, before I head upstairs to do the pile of ironing, I thought I'd share a quick card:

Stamps: There She Goes - Oh Snap
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Midnight Muse; Versamark
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Midnight Muse, Pacific Point; Clear Embossing Powder; Photo from me; Copics - T1, T3, T5, B06

I used the layout from this week's CAS(E) this Sketch! challenge - CTS55 - and I have to admit that I was stumped for quite a while.  It was only while browsing through my stamp catalogue that I decided on the design.  I've used the colours from Dynamic Duos - DD#81 - they've given us Midnight Muse and we could pick the other colour.  I've gone for another blue - Pacific Point.

I stamped the camera in Midnight Muse onto scrap white card and coloured with Copics.  I stamped some accessories onto card and cut the lot out.  I layered the white panel onto a navy mat and adhered the camera and accessories.  I added a simple sentiment and the date on the label (in Europe we write the date, not month, first).  On the inside I had a bit of fun.  I found a photo of Jonathan, taken at the Plymouth Ice Festival in January, printed it and mounted it on a blue mat.  I added a fun, and appropriate sentiment.  As you can guess - this one is for Jonathan.

That's it - I can't put off the ironing any longer!  Fortunately, I've a few episode of The Walking Dead to catch up on - it'll make the ironing go so much quicker.  See you tomorrow!
