Uplifting

Hi everyone, I've done a double challenge card today for A spoon full of sugar 'sparkle and bling' and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge where there's a wonderful sketch to follow by my blogging friend Donna, it's Donna's first sketch for the DT so I hope there are lots of entries, it's also my first time for this challenge. I've used Penny Black's uplifting stamp which I stamped three times in Versafine black ink, pencil coloured and blended with Sansodor, cut out various elements and attached with gel glue. The background paper is Pebbles 'Swirls', the pink panel and image mat are Cordinations card. The vertical panel has been embossed with the paisley CB folder and then sanded and distressed. The scalloped element and bottom strip of the sketch are white bazzil card. I added lots of stickles, flowers, gems and a tiny bow for the sparkle and bling element. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris
