Cutie Sunday # 66 - A Sketch......


Morning peeps!

There's a fab sketch over at Cutie Sunday this week so I used it to make a card for my friend's daughter who has her birthday next week....... as you can see I haven't yet finished with Autumn cards....... well it is my fave season after all!

I used the yummy papers from Basic Grey's Indian Summer collection..... these really are so beautiful! My lovely friend Gina kindly sent me some of these images ages ago and this one was a dream to colour. I also used a Magnolia stamp, the trailing vine, which I added by masking my image. The colouring was done with Poly and Koh pencils and I added some glitter to the wings..... they are sooooo sparkly IRL! The punched borders are a MS punch and the little flowers were punched with a Woodware punch.

I'd like to thank the ladies over at Cutie Sunday because this was such a fab sketch to work with and I hope to use the layout again.

As usual I'm blogging whilst at work so I'd best crack on....... the kettle has just boiled, lol!

Thanks for stopping by today ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
