Just a reminder that the month long 3 or More Embellishments challenge at Just Some Lines is still open.To play along you need to use a Just Some Lines image to enter and you could win a digi if you’re picked as part of the Top 3!

I’ve used the cheerful Em Joy by Just Some Lines on my card.She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and her shoes have been glammed up with a Red Copic Atyou Spica pen,along with the heart on her dress.It’s always so difficult to capture the sparkle on camera 😦 Does anyone know the secret?

Here’s an attempt in a close up :

Not brilliant but…it’s kinda there 😛

Please click on the pics for a better quality view.Not sure why but the ones in the post always look a little blurry.

I decided to make this sort of patchwork background using a die set that  I just had to buy way back in the Summer but have only used here for the first time!!These pretty papers were a freebie from a mag.I thought I’d add some interest to the sentiment by embossing it and then trimming it,and the red card it’s layered on to,down to fit the corner.It’s popped up on foam tape too.I’ve used Raffia Lace ribbon,Natural Ric Rac,a Tiny Wooden Shape which I’ve topped with a gem and another gem,in the shape of a flower,has been added to the sentiment.
