I was up until 3.00 this morning trying to finish this card for entry into five challenges. Our friend is turning 60 and I wanted to make her something a bit sparkly. Fortunately for me, I found three challenges to suit:
Pollycraft wanted "ribbon and bling", Prairie Fairie wanted "glitz and glitter" and Cupcake want us to "dazzle". I chose a Tilda (one I haven't used before) which makes my card suitable for Magnolia-licious who also wanted "bling" and are celebrating a 2 year birthday themselves and Just Magnolia who have a superb sketch by the uber talented Mina.
I have managed to make my card super-sparkly simply by using a selection of some new DCWV papers called Linen Closet and some from my DCWV Glitterstack. Tilda is coloured in Copics and Promarkers. She has Stickles in her hair and I used Spica pens for her sash and bow, her shoes and petticoats and a tiny bit on the rose on her dress.
I made an easel card, using my version of Mina's sketch for the front/top. The "Enjoy your Day" sentiment is by Stampin Up and the quote is a stamp by Fiskars. I finished it off with punched flowers, brads. pearls and a little more Stickles. The Linen Closet paper on the base of the card is embossed and stunningly sparkly and I didn't think it needed any more embellishment. In spite of the very late night, I am pleased with the finished product.
