2 in 1.....







It's the weekend again and usually there would be a Yaaay!! after it but every day is a weekend for me just now!!! LOL!
I have combined two challenges this week: Basic ~Grey - Glitter and Sketch Saturday.
I had a great time with this card but it did take a while.
I have used bazzill cardstock with Wassaill BG papers which I embossed with the snowflake folder and distressed and tore the edges.
I found this cute snowflake stamp lurking around begging to be used so I randomly stamped some snowflakes around the edge of the cardstock with Versafine Green Ink, used my glue pen to outline them and added some glitter.
My image is from my good friend Lim and is by H'Anglar /Stanglar and coloured with watercolours and tombows, my colouring is quite rough and I like to do it like that sometimes a bit raggedy, jaggedy!!! the ribbon border is from an SU kit and buttons are also Basic Grey. I have added glitter and attached the sentiment with a wee jump ring.
It's heavily layered and think it will be getting hand delivered!!!
What is it with this Blogger - everytime you decide to change something on your post everything has moved and gaps appear everywhere - Grrrr!! It drives me mad!!
Well I'm off to clean this "Fur Pit" that I am currently living in!!! He He!!
Be back later - might squeeze in another card depending on how the cleaning goes - Now where's my Marigolds.....................

You kill me with you DETAILS! You are the QUEEN OF DETAILS! Seriously! Look at you! WOW!
There are many layers I can see that, but the way you have coordinated everything is marvellous! You surprise me everytime with your talent for adding all the extra things that go together so well that its amazing!
Every layer has it's own thing going on! You have not just added the layers but you have "built" them! You know what I mean...? There is something going on everywhere on your card, and it looks just so GOOD!
You should get a Craft Oscar kinda award... I swear...
You rock!

STUNNING work Dawn - as always. You are so good at putting all the details together to make it look so nice. I am ever sojealous cos I can't do that!!! Dont envy you re the fur. We have that job here as well, but it isnt as bad since my 2 long haired boys went to Rainbow Bridge. Mind you, I'd sooner have the fur and have them here anyday xxxx
