Well it's my Last week as Guest deisgner over at Tuesday Morning Sketches and I have to say I've enjoyed it so much,  having to think of different designs and layouts it's been fab.  This weeks image has been supplied but Soft Pencil and because of Christmas I tried to keep it as simple as I could following the Sketch,  I coloured the image with PM's and cut out added some Gem Hearts Large and medium and coloured the small hearts with Stickles,  I used some bubble's paper and a large Birthday greeting and framed that with Paper Roses from WOC,  I then just finished off with some Pearls and added some 3d Glaze to some of the paper circles to give some texture.

Thanks for looking and I want to thanks Melissa and the DT team at TMS as well..

Exciting Day today

Today is my first week as a  GDT member over at Tuesday Morning Sketches  For me this is my very first spot so it's a little daunting knowing if what Im doing is ok and if it's good enough as everyone is so talented. I want to thank Melissa for the opportunity too, its great fun.

Anyway, the image fairy from Prairie Fairy is so sweet I couldnt resist it,  I chose 2 mediums to colour her in,  H2o's for the Holly, berries and her wings to give her a lovely sheen, and the fairies body I used my H2o's  I mounted the while image on Red Mirri board and mounted that onto a Gold Miri board punched with my MS deep trellis punch,  The Main DP is Papermania Silent night,  the berries are slightly raised and foiled, for the picture corders its just some Gold Miri and I added some WOC flowers to both corners in Deep and mixed Reds,  I then finished to what thing with some Organsa Ribbon and Red gems.

Thanks for looking and enjoy this weeks challenge.

Velvet and Pearls

Good Morning,
I made this card lastnight following the Sketch on Tuesday Morning Sketches, I needed to make a 21st Birthday card for my Cousins Daughter this week,  There are a few components on this card,  I used some Starform Bodice peel offs to cut out  the shape of the bodice onto Velvet paper, I used the peel off layers on 3d pads again on Velvet cut though the middle to give me 2 pieces and threaded pale pink ribbon to lace it up,  this is then mounted onto a Nestie, I inked the edges with Distressed Ink Spun Sugar,  the card blank is then layered with Red Card and Pink card,  the pink card has Papermania Capsules collection papers in Red and Pink,  the bottom was punched with my Fiskars punch,  I used a lacy effect paper at the top cut out to give a rounded triangular effect just using my Corner rounder punch with the guards taken off, this worked perfectly,  the whole thing was then adorned with Ribbon, Roses and cherry blossoms from Wild Orchid Crafts, Pearls and a Coat Hanger Charm..  I hope this meets the sketch brief..   and more importantly I hope Danielle will love it..
