April CCC

This is the card I made for Deborah's April Card Chain Challenge (CCC).  I try to participate each month as it is so much fun getting a card from somewhere in the world and sending a card to someone (normally not in the same country as you).  This month I got to send one to Corey in the USA.    I used a Pure Innocence digital image by Heather Ellis.  I just love these images.  I played around with some colour pencils, sansodor (gamsol) and a paper stub!!! so fun as it was my first time trying it.  Will need to practice quite a bit I think!!!  Added glossy accents to the mail box, a fimo button which I had made recently and my new MS lace punch.

This month the template was this (Deborah also provides a colour swatch or theme that you can use... but I went for the template!).
and I made this....
Can't understand why the colour/contrast in the photo isn't so great.  Will try and retake and post it again.

I also want to share the beautiful card that I received from the super talented Sally.  Last month I sent Sally a card for the March CCC, so it was so fun receiving one from Sally this month.  Sally worked on the sketch/template too.
Be sure to keep an eye here for the next month's sign up if you want to play along.  Thanks for peeking.

I want to give a HUGE shout out and THANK YOU to all supporters of the Dream Team that have helped us on our way over the past five weeks.  It has been quite a journey!!! and Kathy, Fika and I had a wonderful time.  The last 24 hours of the Battle was absolute nail biting stuff and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help, support and encouragement.

Hope you have a great day.
