DT Card for Gingerloft: Kraft Cardstock/Paper

Hi everyone, it's Gingerloft time again .This week we are asking you to create something with 
Kraft Card Stock/Paper
I printed directly onto the card stock, then cut to fit on the oval die cut I already had (not realizing that the Kraft card stock were two different tones), and added all the bits and pieces as you see which is all from my ever growing stash, and I also used Kraft card as the card base.
I used liquid pearls for the dots.

DT Card for Gingerloft : the colour Green

Image from Gingerloft

Hi everyone, it's Gingerloft time again, and this fortnight we are asking you to create a card with 
the colour GREEN
Well, what do you know, we are getting close to St Patricks day, and I have been told that this is the time here in Australia to plant your Sweat Pea flowers. Maybe that's why I never seem to be to grow them well, because I am always way later with the planting. I do love the smell of them.
This gorgeous Dragonfly image ( I am a bit partial to Dragonflies) is lovely and a little has a little Asian influence with the Bamboo and all. 
I used papers from my stash, I always colour with pro markers, and used heaps of glitz on the Dragon fly, no sure if you can see, and I deliberately left of the sentiment.
So I hope you like it and let's see yours....
I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Sweet n Sassy #95: Go green
Whoopsi Daisy: 2 Patternend Papers
Challenges4Everybody # 15: Anything goes

so go and hop on over to our main blog and check out what the prize is. Gotta be in it to win it.
Our theme for this fortnight is 
Autumn or Spring
I chose Spring, even though here in Australia we are just in the throws of Autumn now.
 I think with all the rain we have had (after all the severe bushfires)  this year, I needed to do a spring card.
I always use Pro markers for my colouring and the papers are from my stash, the flower centres are glitzed and the paper flower has a blue jewel brad centre and finished off with an organza ribbon.
I love this image, and as you can see a lot of the DT chose it and coloured it in lots of colour combos.
Hope you like it.
