I have entered this card into the following challenges:

Lets Get Stamping where we have to follow a sketchie with a recipe of 1 brad, 1 bow and 1 button.

Sketch Saturday where we have to follow a sketchie, but no theme.

Moving along with the times - to follow a sketchie and with an open theme.

The stamped image is called 'Special Day' from the Wild Rose Studio range which I bought from my local craft shop Bee Crafty and coloured with Grey shades of Promarkers and touched up with Spica glitter pens in red. I used Label 6 Nestability die backed onto plain red card, inked around the edges with Tim Holtz distressing inks.

I have tried some very drastic distressing and backing papers. I thought the image was crying out for something very regal as she looks like she is off to some posh do, and these papers remind me of those you would find in some stately home. They are from a paper pad I bought from QVC about 2 years ago, I knew I would find a use for them someday.

I used a white piece of card punched out both sides with a Silvermoon border punch for the layer behind the image using the same distressing inks as above.

I created the sentiment off my computer. Buttons, brads and ribbon are from my stash.
