For my card I’ve used Violets from Digi Doodle Shop.They’ve been coloured with Polychromos Pencils and blended out with Low Odour Oils Thinners using a paper stump.I then went back in to the centres of the flowers and added more detail and deeper shading to the middles of the leaves.I simply cut some Nestabilities and Grand Nestabilities Standard Circles and Classic Scalloped Circles from Papermania Capsule Collection card and a piece of design paper I got in a bargain box at my local craft warehouse.The base has been inked around the edges with Grape Jelly Memento Dew Drop Ink.Some pearls and a length of beautiful organza ribbon complete the card.I did my usual trick of slicing a tiny strip off the back of the card to allow it it be completely free-standing without spoiling the shape.

In the pink for Christmas

Time for another Willow Sketchie Challenge!Lis-M has provided a fabulous sketch to work with this week.Here it is :

I’ve used Winnie Christmas Shopping from the Winnie and Walter does Christmas CD-rom from Willow Designs.The square is a pre-coloured and faux layered card panel so a nice,quick way to get those cards finished in time for Christmas.All the matching papers are from the CD-rom too,so no scrabbling round searching for those elusive coordinating papers either.The textured card is Papermania Colossal Capsule Collection.I’ve used Tonic Studio Edger Punch 1 with an X-Cut Border Punch System that has been gathering dust for years.Definitely gonna pull this out to play more.A piece of card cut from a Nestabilities Labels 4 has been cut in half and placed either side of the image.I found this fibre in my stash and added it as I felt it went well with the scarf.Some Diamond Stickles have been applied to the jewels on her crown and Frosted Lace Stickles has been used to glitz up her bags.

This is what you could win :
