Lili of the Valley & Totally Gorjuss


Last card for today i promise lol this card is for my Niece she is such a stroppy madam it's the perfect image for her and i love how this card turned out, the papers are dove craft again not got many left now will have to get some more me thinks. I'm entering this into the Lili Of The Valley Challenge this week its Glitter & Glitz, I'm a bit gutted cause the camera hasn't picked up the glitter her skirt and the ribbon on the prezzie is covered in angel dust and in real life it looks fab.

I followed the sketch over at Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog and used non traditional Christmas colours so its perfect for Totally Gorjuss this week as well......Oh by the way the sentiment reads " Please Santa Define Good" I love it and it only cost me £1.30 from the nec.

Thanks for looking Shell xx

Another card i did make this yesterday but the light is so back had to wait to take the picture. For this card i followed the sketch on The Sweet Stop Challenge Blog it also fits into the Allsorts Challenge which is Lace, Ribbon and a Charm, i have just noticed my charm is not hanging properly because i had to lay it flat to take the pic, I'll be back in a minute with another card.
