Tina's Sketch At Live & Love Crafts

Hi everyone, February all ready, who stole January?? 1st of the month means that we have a new challenge at Live and Love Crafts, this month we have a lovely sketch from Tina. Here is my creation,

a card as always, following this sketch,

This is one of those lovely sketches where the card just makes itself. Sandy has just got the new Pion Design collection in, personally I think this is their best collection yet, here's a peek at the collection

gorgeous or what?? Check the store out HERE as there are loads of goodies in the sale.

I've used papers from the new Pion collection, as always there is a link at the end of the post. I've distressed the edges and machine sewn them. Once again I've coloured Tilda in with 'no lines' with distress markers, and I've added glamour dust for sparkle. I've used gorgeous blue Magnolia Vintage Berries, cream rolled roses, cream chrysanthemums and roses from my stash, with plenty of stickles for sparkle. There is one of Sandy's new charms, cream organza, cream fan cluny lace and Melissa Frances pearls. I've added picket fence crackle paint here and there.

I'm entering this into the 'Blue, Brown and Cream' challenge at Diva's By Design, 'Wings' at MDUC and also into 'Anything Goes' at Marvelous Magnolia.

Our challenge is open for a month, we can't wait to see what you create.

  13. This got to be one of my favourite cards from you ever Becky. Yes, I love your lilacs, and your vintage pink, but blue...that's just something very special about blue. :-) Or maybe it's just because I love looking at how you've put the new Pion papers to use? Don't really know, but what I do know, is that I adore this card. So very beautiful.
