The Pixie Cottage #62 - Sketch and/or Sparkle

Good Morning my Dears,  It's been ages since I posted anything, the horrible bug really floored me, I've had no energy what so ever.  Feeling a bit more like myself now but still feeling a little drained.

I'm here to tell you all about the new Challenge over at The Pixie Cottage, sadly this will be my last DT card for the lovely Michelle.  I've had a wonderful 6 month term and I've thoroughly enjoyed working with all the lovely talented and sweet girls.

Would you like to be a Guest Designer for The Pixie Cottage, if so then pop GDT along side your name when entering the challenge.

We have a wonderful sketch and/or the theme of Sparkle this week. I've gone with the glitter aspect and I've paper pieced sweet Hannah's dress and added glamour dust to the spots on her dress.  I've also used glitter paper from Trim craft called Love Letters, it's a stunning 6x6 pad with lots of glittery papers and double sided papers too.  I'll be buying more of this.

I've used a craft concept embossing folder behind the image called flutterby, it's so pretty, I then sanded it to make the image stand out a little. My full recipe for my card is below this post.

That's about all from me for now, but I may be back a little later with another creation that is just about finished.  I hope you all have a wonderful day.
