JAI59 - just add a sketch

Hi there,
welcome back for this week’s Just Add Ink challenge. This week we have a lovely sketch for you. Here it is.

It’s going to be another girls birthday card I really figure I need to build up my stash to prepare for whenever Miss 6 gets invited to a party since I don’t always have the option to whip one up in time. (My card making is more of a slow cooking process than an....omlette - nothing wrong with an omlette though) ;) So here is my slow cooked card.

For this one I decided to use Candy Lane DSP as my starting point. So I pulled it out and decided which patterns I wanted to use. Having sorted out my layers I stamped my image and coloured her in, was pretty chuffed with how that turned out. Then it was sticking it all together and adding the finishing touches - in this case some stitching, and dazzling diamonds. I really love how adding these touches kind of lifts everything :) I know pretty brief again, for me anyway, but I'm tirrreedd. Any questions just ask!

Thanks for visiting and if you have time this week why don't you have a go at the sketch too!
