Sweet Dreams...

Hi there, Emma here!

Its a brand new challenge today over at Cute Card Thursday, our theme for this one is 'Whateva'. How easy is that?!!! Full details of the challenge can be found HERE! Our sponsor for this challenge is Digital Delights, and the winner gets a $10.00 Gift Certificate!

I wanted to give my card a vintage feel because this image is perfect for this style. I used an old sketch from Simon Says, because it was one I really liked. My papers are a mixture from my stash and I have inked, distressed and glittered all edges...

...My adorable image is called 'Sweet Dreams' by Penny Johnson, and I have coloured her with Promarkers and chalks and I added some stickles to the stars and candle...

...My gorgeous flowers are from Wild Orchid and I have glittered them all up, my beautiful lace, ribbon and bead trim are all from our local market...

... I did the sentiment on the computer and glittered the edges.

Challenges I am entering with this card:

Thankyou for looking!

Big hugs

  14. I know I say this about every card but this is my new favourite! I adore this card and loved it even more when I saw it up close when I came round to see you. The pearl swirl in the corner is my favourite part of the card because it travels over the different depths of backing papers, making it look 3D. I adore the little girl in the image and the lace and distressing gives this card a perfect vintage feel. As always your arrangement of flowers is beautiful and I adore the bow and pins.
    I don't know whether anyone else thinks this but I still cant get over how talented you both are, you make cards that I would never imagine could actually be made because they are always so visually stunning, they really are pieces of art to be cherished if you are lucky enough to receive one.
    Love ya Sis xxx
