Pocket Full of Posies – Challenge #4

Ayelet is hosting the challenge at Pocket Full of Posies this week, and the theme is ‘All that Glitters’, so don’t forget to add plenty of bling to your card, as well as the compulsory flowers. Our lovely sponsors for this fortnight are The Pixie Cottage.

Here is my card for this challenge. Continuing my love affair with the Lili of the Valley stamps, I’m using one of their cutie-pie little ladies as my image. I’ve used Promarkers to colour her as usual, and added some touches of glitter here and there on the little scene. I believe that the gorgeous glittery paper is by MME, but it was just a loose sheet in my stash, so don’t quote me on that! The sentiment is by Whiff of Joy, and all the cardstock is by Bazzill. The flowers are rosebuds (very similar to the Prima ones) from my local craft shop, to which I’ve also added a dusting of fine crystal glitter.

Thank you for taking a look at my card!

PFOP – A Sketch!

For our Pocket Full of Posies challenge this week we have a great sketch by Sandie  for you to follow. Our sponsors this week are Cardz’n’Scrapz, and they are giving our winner a copy of Tim Holtz’s book ‘A Compendium of Curiosities’. Our Guest Designer is Marcea Watkins.

Sandie’s sketch

Here is the card that I made using the sketch. I used designer papers from My Mind’s Eye and K & Co’s Wild Raspberry collection, and the image and sentiment are both by Lili of the Valley. I coloured the image with Promarkers, and sponged the edge the oval with Distress Ink by Ranger in Broken China. My floral decorations are all from my stash, and I added a sparkle to them by Glimmer Misting the flowers with Iridescent Gold before attaching them to the card.

I hope that you enjoyed our first challenge, and thank you to all of you who made a card – they were all wonderful!  I’m sure that you’ll love playing along this fortnight too, and I’m really looking forward to seeing the entries based on Sandie’s sketch!
