Papertake Weekly challenge

Hi & Welcome to my blog!

A huge hello! to some new followers x

Today's card is for the Papertake Weekly challenge which to my delight is a sketch.

Yippee!!! I do love sketch challenges so much.
I found this challenge blog last night and instantly had an idea of what to do.  I have had some papers that have been in my crafty stash for quite a few years (I am sorry to say) and I have finally got around to using them.  What started to be quite a simple idea, as I have the little one home on half term turned out to be a labour of love.  It just kept needing the extra layers and they proved to be quite tricky to cut out!

Apologies for the photo ~ the colours haven't quite come out right it's so dark and grey today it was actually quite hard to get good light.

Green background paper ~ Bazzill Spring breeze
Decoupage and co-ordinating papers ~ are from a card making kit I purchased from my craft club rucraft
Ribbon ~ Celebrate ribbon by the spool and gems from my own crafty stash

Layering is so worth the time gives a great dimension to the card.

The detail in these fairies are great ~ it's a shame you can't see the sparkle in the photo's.  The papers and decoupage are covered in glitter and so am I now!

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.  Hope to see you all very soon with another challenge

Love Em x
