Graphicus June Challenge.

This months challenge at Graphicus is to use the colours hot pink and orange!
I have been slowly working on this all week and finally managed to complete it this afternoon - I spent the morning at Stamp Magic in Doncaster :-) and had a thoroughly good shop, comments were made about the number of heavy bags that came home with me!!!!!

Here's my card:

I am trying to decorate the inside of my cards:-

Papers are from Artylious Damask CD and the stamps are from the May Guild stamp set, "Bird Song" and the inner sentiment is from the" say it with words" stamp plate.

Roll on next weekend - we are off to Bonny Scotland, with the intention of calling in at Graphicus Open day on the way home! Excited or what!
