Two Challenges

I've just finished this card, I know-yet another Hanglar one, and I'm entering it into 'Use Stitches' at Lovely Hanglar and 'Anything Goes' with the option to add glitter at Just Magnolia and Hanglar, when I'd finished the card there was only a few stickles on the roses, but when I saw the glitter option I had to get my pots out, lol.

Flowers are all from Wild Orchid to which I subtley added stickles. The gold leaves are a Magnolia Doohickey die, and the tag is from Go Kreate and the sentiment is from one of my Hanglar Kits. The thick seam binding, which you can just see is also fom Wild Orchid Crafts, it's so lovely I must buy some more.

I've used copics and prismacolour pencils for this image, I'm really liking the effect this gives.

The papers are K & Co from Dies To Die For and I've distressed the edges, the irridescent gold and brown bazzill are from my stash. I also dug my sewing machine out to stitch all of the edges. I love the effect this gives, really don't know why I don't use it more often.

Now for a relaxing afternoon colouring while hubby takes kids to watch the rugby, in preparation for a lovely 12 hour shift tonight-yippee!

Take care,
