Challenge 51 at Pear Tree Designs- Sparkle!

Here is my card for this week's challenge over at Pear Tree Designs....the theme this week is Sparkle! The DT were given some lovely images to play with by Meljen's Designs.

I chose this little cutie called Cuddle Cloud Baby, which I coloured in with my Promarkers and added tons of Stickles for sparkle. I needed a baby girl card to pop in my card box, so I went very pink on this card. The papers are from a freebie pack that came with a mag, and they have been matted onto pink cardstock. I embellished the card with some ribbon, buttons and gems from my stash. A Lili of the Valley stamped sentiment finishes off the card.

I really hope this post appears as planned on here, I'm scheduling it as we're off on our hols...sunny Cyprus here we come!!! See you all soon :)

Challenge 50 at Pear Tree Designs- Sketch

This week's challenge at Pear Tree Designs is a nice easy sketch for you to follow, and this week's sponsor is Cardmadfairy's Card Creations who is giving away 6 new images to the lucky winner!

The DT each had a lovely digi to play with....this little bee was mine! I coloured him in with promarkers and decoupaged him up, adding Stickles to his wings for extra sparkle. The papers are from a Dovecraft pad and have been matted with green card. I used a Martha Stewart punch for the lacy effect and added gems from my stash. The sentiment is a combination of a freebie on a mgaine and a Wild Rose one. To finish the card, I added a button tied with some satin thread.

I would like to enter this card into another couple of challenges:
One Stitch at a Time: Bling it On (gems & glitter glue)
Paperplay: Sparkle Galore (gems & glitter glue)

This week's challenge over at Pear Tree Designs is to use your stamps....we want to see your cards with stamped images, but no digis please! Our sponsor this week is One Stop Card Crafts who are offering a goody bag for this week's winner.

I decided to use my new Tatty Teddy stamp for my card this week, I thought it would be perfect for my friend's birthday tomorrow. I coloured him in with Promarkers and added some extra sparkle with some Stickles. The papers are from Dovecrafts Back to Basics pad, and I used a pretty scalloped card blank for a change. I added some roses, lace, and pearls from my stash and the sentiment is a Lili of the Valley one.

Challenge 47 at Pear Tree Designs-Free for All.

This week's theme over at Pear Tree Designs is a Free for All, so anything goes! The prize this week is a goody bag from the lovely Donna, so come over and join in!

I decided to ink up my new stamp which I couldn't resist the other day, have liked the SWALK stamps for a while. I coloured her in with Promarkers, inked around the edges with sandy ink and added some Glossy Accents to the puddle and rain drops. The papers are from the Dovecraft pad Sugar & Spice, ooh what a lovely paper pad! I used some brown card for matting the layers and inked up a doily for a lacy effect. I also used a flower, ribbon & buttons from my stash, and finished off with a Craftwork Cards oval sentiment.
