I have used a paper from a paper pad by Rosie's Studio.  The image is from Ike's Art and is coloured with copic markers.  The digital sentiment is from Mudmaven Designs.  I matted both the image and sentiment with brown cardstock from Rosie's Studio.  I also added three large pearls from Rosie's Studio.

Just Because

I changed one of the elements on the sketch from circle to oval - as I had already die-cut the image for another card which didn't get completed!

Christmas Wishes

The red and white theme here wasn't intentional - it sort of evolved from the paper choice.  The image made me think of gingham - and it kind of went from there!

Crafting with Friends - Anything Goes
http://crafting-with-friends.blogspot.co.nz/2016/11/challenge-32.html

I have used a gingham patterned paper from a christmas paper pad by Kaisercraft. The sentiment and border are from the same paper pad.  The image is from QKR Stampede and is coloured with copic markers and Kindy Glitz.  I die-cut with a Spellbinder die and added some small red pearls.

Happy Birthday

This is an image my daughter can really relate to.  She has just finished her second year of a costume degree.  Earlier this year, they made corsets - and she is keen to make another one.

Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
http://brownsugarchallenge.blogspot.co.nz/2016/11/challenge-226-anything-goes.html

I have used a paper, border and topper from a paper pad by Kaisercraft called "Needle and Thread".  I added a handwritten sentiment to the topper.  The image is from Pattie's Creations and is coloured with copic markers.  I added some Glossy Accents to the border to give the buttons more dimension.  Matting is green pearlescent paper.
