Monday Morning blues

Well hope you all had a lovely weekend
Mine was ok... Boring at times..but ok
I had lots of craft time so was happy
I have made my latest card for
Tickled Pink Challenges
Actually made two..but one of them I was not happy with
It looks fine but the colouring of the image is not good
anyway here is the card I am going to enter into a couple of Challenges
I have used Die cuts, Gems and Ribbon
also three patterned paper and Embossing
Anything Goes
Anything Goes Linky

Onto my card
made in Browns and Blues this time
the papers are from Summer Driggs
she has some gorgeous papers.
The Image is from Tickled Pink 
called Lil Christmas Ivy
I followed the sketch on the front panel
 adding some square gems in the top corner.
The sentiment was stamped onto 
a die cut scalloped circle
 Closer view of the Image
 Here you can see the inside of the card
with my chicken wire embossed card as the panel to write on
This card is made as an easel card
just stood the opposite way..if that makes sense
maybe there is a name for this type of card

I have also been busy making a Maze Book.
After seeing it on Julia Dunnits blog
and wanting to have a go
I googled and got instructions..
and had lots of fun
Will show on the next post
I need to get some pictures taken
Right that's me for now
Hope you all have a good week 
will pop over to your blogs later
(I am going to look for new wallpaper for my blog)
Thanks for Stopping By xx

Liking the image, very Tim Burton-esque which I love. Saw your project on Make it Monday and had to come over and take a closer look.
