Sweet Stampin' Sketch Challenge

The challenge theme for this week at Sweet Stampin'  is a sketch by our own Fiona. I don't use sketches so this was fun for me and my card went together much faster than usual! Thank you to Lillian for the Kraftin' Kimmie image and thank you to Julie P for the pretty papers!

I know it's difficult to see, but her wings are completely coated with Cool Glitter Ritz. I used a bit of clear glitter on her wand, lace on her dress and on her ponytail holders.

The corner die is by Cheery Lynn and the leaf punch is by Martha Stewart and the flowers are from StampingScrapping and Wild Orchid. I unmounted all my stamps 2 years ago--before I thought to note the stamp companies--and have no idea who made the "May your day sparkle" sentiment. The circle die around this little image is a Spellbinders.

Here's the card sketch for this week's challenge:

  4. Love these Cheryl designs at KK -- and you've colored this one sparkly well !! Your sketch has worked out beautifully - now, if we could only get the new and "improved" (cough, cough) InLinkz to work, so we can enter the challenge . . .

  5. Super, super pretty! I love the glittery wings and little spots on her skirt. X

  6. This is lovely Gail. In answer to your query, I find the metal adapter plate is brilliant for the Cheery Lynn dies. Also, there are Tutorials on how to gett he best from them on the Cheery Lynn site. Take a look here and see if this helps Judy x

  7. She is so cute! Love the way you've colored her and the beautiful layers! I linked over from the Sweet Stampin Challenge where I am playing along too.
