Crafty Cardmakers #63: Susie's Sketch

Here's another DT post coming attcha! ;) As I'm a bit lazy, I'll let the Crafty Cardmakers blog do the talking for a bit:

"This time we are sponsored today by ONE STOP CARD CRAFTS who are offering a £10 voucher for their store as a prize.

Not only are they giving us a fabulous prize, BUT they host a regular challenge at One Stop Crafts Challenge!

We are also sponsored today by DIGI DOODLE SHOP who are offering a $10 Gift Certificate for the store

Thank you so much for having us, and again the very best of luck to all of you.

Judy and Joy

And now, here's the sketch~
Place your image/sentiment wherever and embellish however you like!

I've used a digi image from Digi Doodle Shop--this is my first attempt at ever using a digital stamp, so PLEASE be kind! :) Since I'm hopeless at coloring (WORKING on it), I've paper pieced this lovely image--it's called Roses. Okay, I did use colored glitter gel pens to color in the really small bits...and added more glitter to the roses. LOVE glitter! :)

Here's my card~

Details~




Paper piecing takes a bit of time--it's not for the faint of heart--but I really feel that it lends special texture to our cards! And pearls were the only thing I felt could embellish this more.

I have no idea who I will give this to, but it will have to be someone special, as I hate to have my hard work thrown in the trash--I'm sure you all know the feeling!

So, what do you think of this? I do believe I'll be using more digi images in the near future!!! Thank you to Digi Doodle Shop for sponsoring--hop on over to their store and take a peek--you may be this week's winner! :)

I can't wait to see what you all create--come and join us at Crafty Cardmakers this week!!! Happy sketching! :)
