Hi all hope its not too cold where you all are ,it could be worse I suppose we could be in chaos from inches of snow, sorry if you already are.
Well my card is for mum to send to my sister the sketch is from Totally gorjuss and as I got some more gorjuss stamps just had to use one of them. I coloured it red as my sis being a natural blonde likes wearing red, she's definitely no blonde bimbo or bombshell though. Fab layout though another for the favourites book.
Over at the pink elephant challlenge they want you to use your favourite colouring medium and though I love those I have that sparkle since getting my promarkers I have bearly used anything else they are just so versatile. I used them to colour the flower so it matches perfectly. The flowers, well I have been trying to use more embellishments since entering challenges and improve my cards so went to buy some flowers , I couldn't believe how much they cost for the small packs they had in hobbycraft, and to get some in each colour, 4 multipackes with 6 of 4 colours in each was going to be £12. I came up with the idea of getting some silk flowers and pulling them to bits, but these weren't much cheaper, but in another shop just further down, the exact same spays were £1.49 each. I got 3 so now have loads of flowers in different sizes and can colour them whatever colour I like. They are all the same shape but it was only an experiment so now I know it works I can look for different flower styles. See what you think to my flower, I've used them on another project too on another post.
Right back to my card and the challenges. Stamp something have a theme of glitzy and as I have glitter on my dots and glitter paper and mirri card , I think it might be glitzy, don't you?
I love promarkers the first time I'm entering have a theme of spots and stripes and as I have dotty paper and stripes of glitter paper and ribbon I can enter so glad I found their blog. I love finding new challenges I can play.
Saturday spotlight with hidden potential have a theme of christmas flowers so I can enter this card as I have my now red flower.
C.R.A.F.T. challenge want a card for a christmas birthday, my sisters birthday isn't strictly christmas as its at the begining of January, but when she was little she always complained it was too close to christmas and often got one gift for both christmas and birthday so I count it as a christmas birthday.
Finally over at Stamping vacation they have a pick 3 challenge and I picked glitter paper, colour an image and add glittler to patterned paper.
