My Besties UK - Same But Different - Happy Couple

Good morning....

and welcome back to my blog .... 
Today over at my besties uk we are having a same but different posting... each month we are having a post where the design team all use that same image ... to showcase the different styles of the design team, its lovely to see the different interpretations of  an image and they different styles of cards and projects that can be made....

The image can be purchased here... however if you hop on over to Besties UK and leave a comment for the design team you could win this fabulous digi for yourself ... you dont have to enter a challenge design and make a card... just stop by and leave a comment what could be easier ?  

The winner will be chosen at random from the commenters and announced on the first Monday of each month...

Here is my card for the same but different posting ....



Such a cute image, I decided that I would only use part of the image today to create a cameo as a focus for my design.
I coloured it with copics using the reds and greys to co-ordinate with the fab aged mahogany core'dinations card some maja design paper from my stash, the dies I used were spellbinders bitty blossoms, the Vienna die from Sue Wilson, spellbinders ovals, and magnolia christmas lace

I hope I have inspired you to leave a comment for me and for the design team over at My Besties UK 
Thanks for Stopping by today
