Papertake weekly challenge!

This is my entry for this weeks papertake weekly sketch challenge!

I'm a big fan of all things girly so though I would use this image of Lola with Flowers from Sugar Nellie that I haven't used in a while (available online at funky kits). I coloured her in with my whispers pens with little glitter on the flowers! Papers are from the sweet nothings papermania range as is the chipboard accent which I have covered in their spotty paper. CS is coredinations and had been embossed with the swiss dots folder. Sentiment is from a studio G set. Black 'x' rub on's are from doodlebug. The flowers were handmade using my x-cut puches and this tutorial. Embellished with a button and adhesive gems to finish!

I can't sleep tonight, hence why I am on here uploading another card a this ungodly hour!! I thought I could do it now as I am going to visit my parents today and also going the the Stamp Magic papercrafts and stamping show at the Doncaster Dome with my mum! Yes I have also recruited my mum to the dark side! Lol! Really looking forward to it, and all that yummy craft stash.

I had a really enjoyable and productive crafty day yesterday using my new stash that arrived yesterday and managed to make 5 cards in total, which I will be uploading over the forthcoming days. I love these kinds of days, although they don't tend to happen all that often!

Hope you are all having a great weekend whether you're crafting or cleaning (hope it's the first rather than the latter)!

Hugs, Vicky x

Hi Vicky, these colours are just gorgeous - just my kind of colours and what a great job you have done with these flowers - I will certainly be giving these a go.

Hope you had a great time at The Dome, I was so disappointed that i couldn't make to the Glasgow show.
