Inspirational Card Sketches #7


Good morning to you all and welcome to another great sketch this week on ICS . A great big thankyou to you all who entered last week, it is so nice to see some of you coming back again for more sketches each week. The sketch this week is absolutely GORJUSS!!!!!



I haven't made an A5 card for a while but this sketch is perfect for this size card and I knew I just had to use this wonderful stamp. The papers were a free download from Patti Pickilicious Printables by the mega talented Kirsty Wiseman . I absolutely love them and am so excited that she will be doing demos in a couple of weeks at Harrogate!!



This is the first time I have stamped something around the edge of my image and I am really pleased with it. Quite like the contrast of the swirls to the geometric design on the papers. It is also the first time I have given an image black hair - I was actually worrying about how to do it, lol. Finishing touches are some glittered flowers from Joanna Sheen and the brads and pearls were from my stash.
I really hope you can join us this week. Make sure you check out the other DT cards - they are a talented bunch and offer such a variety of styles. Have a great day everyone!

Think blogger has stolen my signature thingy so just a great big kiss from me instead
MWAH!!!!
