One Stop Craft Challenge # 33 - Add Some Sparkle.....























Hiya peeps!

This is just a quick post from me as I'm in and out today, shopping and running errands as you do!

I've made this card for the One Stop Craft Challenge, where the brief this week is to use sparkle on your card. Okay mine is a bit subtle - there is Stickles on the flower centre, top left corner of my card and also some on the little bee's wing Tilda is holding. There are two heart shaped gems which are sparkly too, so I suppose I can count them?

This was one of those cards where I wanted to add more, but my dd said I would spoil it so I'm doing as I'm told once again!! I wanted a flower for the top left corner and had a go at drawing and layering one myself...... ahem, I think I'll leave it to the experts in future, lol!

My papers are Basic Grey Urban Prairie and I've used some of the new die cuts I bought recently from The Craft Emporium - great service and a lovely range of papers! That's about all I need to tell you on this one I think!

Right I'm off then, dashing as I said!

Hope you all have a wonderful afternoon in the sunshine (hoping you have some today).

Toodles for now, Tara xxxx

Hi Tara, Such a cute card! I love the papers and Tilda is very sweet.

The sun has returned after a wet week so we are having a BBQ later.

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Gorgeous card Tara and I'm glad you did as you were told as it's just perfect! The paper is so pretty, I haven't got this one (amazingly) and that bottom one is just like a honeycomb, perfect for the bee Tilda, you're so clever spotting that! Beautiful colouring and design and you made me laugh re the drawing.... but you never know until you try. Hope you're having a nice evening after your busy day. Chris xxx
