Hanglar You're Sweet........

Good morning everyone!

Hope you are all feeling good today!! I've based this card on the wonderful sketch provided by the lovely Claudia over at Friday Sketchers this week. I really enjoyed adding all the layers and I do believe that, for once, my end result actually resembles the sketch I started out with, lol!

I've been meaning to ink up this sweet Hanglar image for a while now and pop her on the plant pot...... lots of colouring involved though!! I've coloured her with Prismas and also stickled her wings. I don't very often do black hair but I think it quite suits her!

I've punched out some EK Success small retro flowers and some Martha Stewart leaves, plus I've added some fancy metal corners which were sent in a RAK from my dear friend Heather..... see you Saturday at the NEC matey (excited wink)! I've also stamped lots of faux stitching around various edges as I do love the effect and its much easier than trying to sew (well for me anyway)!!

I think this card could be given to someone for Christmas because of the colours..... these gorgeous papers are Mermory Box. Or it might be nice as a birthday card for someone celebrating around the festive time maybe!

I'm also entering the following challenges:

Lovely hAnglar Only - Punched Out

Crafty Cardmakers - Stitching

E-A-C - Untraditional Christmas

Can I just finish by saying a huge thank you to everyone who visits my blog and especially those lovely peeps who leave regular comments..... I love ya!! And I'm really sorry for being so PANTS at commenting lately myself..... I'm blaming my job for that as there are never enough hours left in the day when I get home!!!

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xxx
