Silly Monkey DT-call

Finally it's weekend for me. Normaly I work every Saturday afternoon, but the past two weeks I had to work the whole weekend. But now the kids are at school, hubby is at work and I have the most part of the day for me!! Have to do a million things today but I wanted to make this post first.
Over at Silly Monkeys they are looking for a new DT-member. Untill last Friday you could enter by following a sketch made by Nikki.
And because I liked the sketch and wanted to make a card anyway, I thought why not give it a shot.
When I hopped over to the Silly Monkey blog just a few minutes ago I saw to my surprise I made it to the last 18!! Yippie!! Never thought I made a chance with all those great ladies entering the DT-call.
For stage 2 they want us to show us 3 creations that we think is out best work and most representing our style. So ladies please let me know what you think is my best work so far.
And now for the card I made for this DT-call.
It's a x-mas card in not so traditional colours. I love the purple and pink. Papers are from Basic Grey (Fruitcake), flowers are from Prima and the cute image is a Precious Moments.
The sentiment is made on the computer (I've got to get me some x-mas sentiment stamps).

Thanks for stopping by
xoxo Karin

I am so happy for you and I'm keeping everything crossed for you to win 'cos you deserve it.
Your card is awesome and very sweet and you know I am admiring your talent and creativity in everything you create.
My very, very, very favourites among your cards are: the "No square edges", "Circle Card", "Card for a girl" for the Dutch Dare Challenge.
And there are also : "Happy Birthday" (with a Sarah Kay stamp) for Friday Sketches; "Secret Message" for Spoon Full of Sugar and the fantastic "Turning Around and Around" card you did at a workshop.
