Aw go on, go on, go on...

In case the headline for the post confused you, here's a short clip from one of the funniest TV-series ever (if you have my sort of twisted sense of humour, that is!)

And here is my card:
The card is for 7 Kids College Fund Challenge which this time is ANYTHING GOES.
I am using a sweet little Blidmalarna Mimosa Tea. All the Bildmalarna stamps are on preorder at 7 KCF at the moment and they are SO sweet!! The papers are from Basic Grey Curio pad (LUSH colours!) and all the colouring is done with Copic markers. I tried to keep my colouring fairly soft and subtle, not really great at that! :( I also embossed the panel behind the stamp with one of my all-time fave embossing folders - herringbone.
I used the sketch from Sweet Stop because I fancied showing off the lovely papers without burying them under too many embellies, lol

Thank you so much for looking!
Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas time!
Hugs

I love these stamps from Bildmålarna.
I like them better than Magnolia, but that's not legal to say, I think...

The card is BEAUTIFUL and I have to agree those papers need showing off. They are my fav at the moment and I don't want to cut into mine! hehehe!
Countdown to maybe a new laptop for you? Have you been a good girl for Santa?
