Can you believe it's December already!!!!! Three weeks to Christmas - loads of presents still to buy - lots of cards still to make!!!! OMG!!! Anyone would think I'm starting to panic!
Without further ado this week's challenge at Totally Gorjuss is a sketch. For the sake of always repeating myself, I so love working with sketches and this week's wonderful sponsor is the fantastic Joanna Sheen.
I love Joanna's on line shop - she has loads and loads of goodies to choose from at really competitive prices and then she charges absolutely nothing for postage - we love you Joanna!
Oh I nearly forgot - thank you for all your amazing creations for last week's challenge - there was sparkle just everywhere.
So here is the sketch that we would like you to follow:
Simple eh! Don't forget you can mirror it, turn it upside down and make some slight alterations to it; as long as we can see that you've tried to follow the sketch you're in with a chance to win. Go and see what the wonderful DT ladies have created to inspire you - they are just fabulous.
Here is the card I made:
I just love Lili of the Valley stamps - they are just so perfect.
Here is a close-up of the stamp:

I have edged everything with Aged Mahogany Distress Ink and everything has been given a good coating of Glamour Dust except for the flowers where I have edged them with "Stardust" Stickles to give them a frosty, blingy look.
Finally, as normal I have carried the layout through to the inside of the card:
So that's it from me - I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to see all your wonderful creations across at Totally Gorjuss.
