Challenge on the double!

Hehe. So I was in a hurry to complete the Papercraft Crew Challenge today and quickly got to work with the card stock colours I had set out.
Now don't ask me why but the colours on the table were ready to do the Just Add Ink Challenge and for some unknown reason I forgot that and thought these were part of the Papercraft Crew Challenge Sketch as well!

So I have completed my card and now realise I have combined the two challenges!!! Something I would never attempt usually!

So I am entering this card in both challenges.

Just Add Ink


Papercraft Crew

I have used:
Island Indigo,  Pool Party and Real Red and Whisper White Cardstock.
Designer paper, which is pool party and sahara sand from Sweet Sorbet, Saleabration
Honeycomb emboss folder
One of those Essential Hardware Clips that I never know what to do with! haha.
two little red hearts from the owl builder punch and two real red candy dots.
Used the new Banner framelits from the All Occasions Catalogue
And Oval framelit.

You Make Me Happy When Skies Are Gray. Was coloured with Island Indigo and Real Red Markers. This stamp is from the See Ya Later Stamp Set in the Saleabration Brochure.
I cut the cloud by hand then sponged around with pool party ink and added dazzling diamonds.
Cause every cloud must have a silver lining!

I am going to send this card to my cousin who sent me this in the mail today.
(care package)

It is a Care Package with candles, Rocky Road Chocolate, English Breakfast Teabags, Bath Bomb and a little Sandal Notepad that has written on it - Hope you are on your feet soon.

How spoilt am I????!!!!

Yes, I haven't been well. But I am determined. I am improving. I have been in the valley but I will climb out. 

Long Live the Heart
Long Live the Soul
That knows what it wants
That piece you can find
That part is the whole
And it never lets go

Long Live the Heart
Long live the soul
That knows what it wants
No matter far
How heavy this load
It never lets go

Need to Breathe - The Heart.
