McIntosh Beauty!

Just a quick pop in today to say hello to you all and post my latest card for the Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge, sadly their final one.  I do feel quite sad that they are stopping the challenges, I always enjoyed them and working with all the fabulous colour combinations that the challenges presented me.  Anyway, I'm sure CB will be coming up with other things to involve those of us who love their stamps.
Here is the colours for this challenge;
 and here is my card, a bit difficult to  photograph
I've used the gorgeous lady image for the McIntosh Beauty stamp set and heat embossed in white embossing powder and added a little colour with various alcohol pens. Background has been coloured with Versacolour and then the pretty Rose image stamped on.  Just a simple design.  
I always think that she looks like a bride, but I've no brides coming up, so she is a Medieval Lady.

Thank you so much for your kind comments on my last post and about my holiday snaps, I do have some more, but for another time.

Running Alistair to the bus station in a wee while as he is going to Glasgow for a few day to visit Jim, who seems to be getting over his viral illness, thankfully, but it has really pulled him down as these nasty things do. So it's just me and Puss and a quiet time. 

See you soon, enjoy your day whatever you're doing,
I would like to enter my card into the
