Dark Fantasy - Anything Goes at A Step in Dark

Good morning, so Half Past Week, is here already, how did that happen, LOL,,also much scarier is the fact that my "Little Brother" is 50 today, so Happy Birthday Cameron, the best Brother a girl could ask for. That does make me feel old, LOL

Anyway, onto the business of the day, we have reached CH#5 - at A Step in the Dark, which is Dark Fantasy/Anything Goes.

If you pop over to the Challenge Blog, you will catch up on news of our new Teamie - Maureen Scott, welcome hun, and also our GDT - Donna, and our Teamie Susan, who is having a wee break, hope you are back soon, Susan. Also you will see all the fabulous projects that the DT have come up with for your inspiration.

The Winners from CH#4 can be found here, congratulations and many thanks for joining us, hope to see you all again this fortnight.

Our Sponsor and Prize for CH#5 is:-

Aurora Wings - $15 Gift Certificate for the Shop

Now onto my card, I really struggle with both hair and animal colouring, and I really feel that I did not do justice to this wonderful image, all I know is I have to do lots of practicing and watching videos..

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

A Girl Who Crafts - July - Anything Goes
A Little Bit Crafty - It's Magic
Bearly-Mine - July - Let's Go Digital
Cards Galore - Use a Stamp or Digi

Thank you for visiting, my friends and I am hoping to get back into my craftroom for a wee while today, I would cross my fingers, if I could, LOL...have a fabulous day.
