Hi All,

Just a quick one! Sorry for being in hiding a bit this week - come down with flu again and keeping getting these awful headaches which just dont go well with blogging :(

Hopefully will be all better next week and back to my usual tricks, lol!

Anyway - enough babbling, I won a challenge! The Color Me Copic teddy bear challenge, such a lovely challenge blog - if you love copics you should really check it out :)

Thanks so much for choosing me!

Hope you're all enjoying your weekend.

Sparkle and Shine

Hi All,

Here's a card I've made for my friends birthday in a couple of weeks. One of our favourite things to do when we were children was watch Cinderella, and the book was quite the favourite too, so I thought this would make a nice card for her.

To show off the sparkles!

Tilda up close

Here's how I made her:
Image & Sentiment
Princess is Tilda Princess from Fairytale Collection from Magnolia. Stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Copics
Ticket is from Whimsy stamps. Stamped with Memento Grape Jelly. Sentiment is from the Elzybells Swirly Greetings Set, stamped in Memento Lilac Posies.

Design papers are from Basic Grey Kioshi Pack

Finishing Touces
Image, papers and sentiment are all inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dusty Concord and the inkessentials foam pad tool.
Flowers are from Prima.
Roses are from Dies to Die for For.
Card candy is from craftwork cards.
Card Candy and Roses are "stickled" with Lavendar Stickles
Ticket, tilda's gloves and crown are "stickled" with Diamond Stickles
Lace was white and I covered it with Tim Holtz distress ink dusty concord and then memento lilac posies.
I added gems on to the back paper too - these are from my stash.

Phew! Lots of work put into this one! Hope you like it xx
