Holiday Wishes

This weeks Bellariffic Fridays challenge was a sketch - you know I love a sketch, and I don't always "stick" exactly to them, use them more as a guideline as you will see today!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my card - yep I made a small change.

Uptown Girl Eve under the Mistletoe is stamped with versafine black ink onto water colour paper and coloured with distress markers.  On the trim on her dresses I used crystal stickles.  The ds paper is MME's All is Bright.  I added some crystal rhinestones in the corners and along the oval.  The shading around the image is done with antique linen distress ink.

On the inside of the card I simply used a piece of the ds paper cut with mft fishtail banner and then shaded with bundled sage distress ink.  The sentiment is from Stamping Bella

Next weeks theme is a perfect one for this time of the year - Holiday Wishes!  This is also perfect for all the yummy new stamps I have on my desk; not to pick one!  Email your card to Em by Thursday to be included on Bloggabella  & you could win some bella bucks

Hey Dana! Love your take on the sketch and how you incorporated the oval - very clever. Love all the twinkle too and love how you've finished up inside.
