A Spoon Full Of Sugar

We have a great sketch from Michelle this week for the A Spoon Full Of Sugar challenge There is a great prize this week too for one lucky random winner. It is a Whiff Of Joy stamp called Teenage Lizzie.


Here is her sketch



And here is my card

Hardly any stamping!!!! Well except for the sentiment. This card is called a suspension card. The scalloped circle "hangs" on a silver thread. I've embossed a white blank card with a Cuttlebug sledding embossing folder and then sponged over it with a pearl blue ink pad. The papers are Basic Grey Dasher which I've layered onto olive cardstock. To make the suspended scalloped circle I used my Cricut. The snowflakes are also cut out with my Cricut and I used SU dazzling diamond glitter over them to make them really sparkle. All the edges of the card and paper have been edged with a sakura clear star pen. Of course you can't see all the sparkle in the photo but in real life it really does! For embellies I used some blooms, ribbon, pearls and gems. The sentiment is a rubber stamp , not too sure who makes it though.

If you would like to join in the challenge why not pop over to the blog and take a look at the other DT members work? All gorgeous as always and all inspiring. We also have a guest designer this week and it's Heike.
