The weather looks a bit chilly but a really nice day out there - must be because hubby's gone flying!!! First chance this year! Shan't see him again till it starts to get dark! - Yay, so now I can craft.
Over on Craftbubble's Craft Mad & Loving It it's Sketchie challenge day today and it's been set this week by Karen and it's a lovely one this week, with the twist of PEARLS. so . . . here's the sketch
And now for my take on the sketch. I took a C6 card and covered the front with one of the pad of free papers from Card Making and Papercraft (the base card was part of a CM&P prize too and one of the last three of the hundred I won). I used my Martha Stewart double border punch on white card to create the border which I then stuck to the offcut piece (how lucky was I with the color eh?) of Coredinations card using very narrow DST - to cover the exposed sticky bits I used ultra fine crystal glitter thus giving extra twinkle! I die cut a scalloped oval which I then roughly edged with a pinkish pad which I got from the dollar bin in Michaels (brand unknown). The dress up Maggi image was donated to me as part of an image swap (my thanks to the donor - she's just fab) and I coloured her using pro markers and used liquid pearls for well, her pearls! Once my card was assembled I added four grey faux pearls to finish it - like it? I do.
