ICSketches 41 - my first GD card


I was absolutely thrilled when I was asked to be a guest designer for Inspirational Card Sketches for November, I love sketches in general and Dawn's are fab! This is my very first one, which I've really enjoyed doing, and I have another 3 weeks on the team too :o) The DT have made some beautiful cards, hope you'll join in if you have time!

I didn't know Digistamp Boutique were this week's sponsor, but I must be psychic because I chose one of their images for my card (well they are lovely aren't they?). I've coloured this cute little singing mouse in with promarkers, used ivory flowersoft for the trims on her coat, boots and hat, added a bit of polar white flowersoft for snow and a chalked sky background. The papers are MME, and you can't really tell from the pictures but each sheet is all lovely and sparkly - it seemed a shame to cut into them really! I've used DCWV cardstock and a downloaded sentiment from Pink Petticoat. The snowflake is cut with the cuttlebug icicle die (my latest toy), and then I've embossed it with the matching icicle folder and given it a liberal dose of glamour dust for lots of extra sparkle. Added a piece of sparkly sheer ribbon and a Craftwork Cards card candy dot to finish.

I'm also entering my card for Simon Says 'all that sparkles', hope I'm not too late to enter this one, and Stamp Something 'cute and fuzzy'. And at One Stop Craft and Saturday Spotlight they want to see how we can use text - one of the papers that I've used is a text one.
