All of a sudden I love Lancome

Sometime ago I was reading the papers and came across this picture that I loved and thought would look fantastic on a card. The image is an advertisement for Lancome, being a natural cosmetics girl I would never have come across this picture if I hadn't seen it in the papers. For this card I cut out the image using a craft knife, stuck to a piece of cardstock and printed the sentiment on my computer. I added the bling on the bag and decided to give the card a black background so as to make the image really stand out. This card shows me yet again that inspiration is everywhere and we just have to find it in the mundane things we do.

The Challenges I have included-
Mema's Crafts-Anything goes with a twist of red
ATC's and cards with attitude-Anything goes
Fat pages and cards with attitude-Anything goes

Catch the bug-Anything goes
CCEE stampers-Anything goes

Stempelsonne-Anything goes
Challenge up your life-Anything/everything goes
Passionately Artistic-Anything goes

I have found most of these challenges through Desire's  blog DOING LIFE. Check the blogs out and enter if you get the chance.

Anyway, I am off to watch more of the Olympics now, I will try not to have too late a night.
