Cute Card Thursday V's Friday Sketchers!

Morning all. Well today's card was made with two challenges in mind. The challenge over at cute card thursday is to use eyelets, which I admit I don't use very often and I have combined this with the sketch over at friday sketchers, which I have rotated to fit my image better!

This adorably cute CC image was sent to me in a recent RAK I won from Leanne, thanks so much hun! I coloured her with my koh-i-noor pencils and sansodor before adding lots of glamour dust to her wings {hope you can see this better in the close up}. The delish papers are MME Bloom & Grow again, sorry it you're getting fed up of seeing these but I still LOVE them! CS is coredinations and I have distressed it with my emery board. I set the eyelets with my cropodile before threading ribbon through. The sentiment is PB and the flowers, pearls and brad are from my stash!

Well I hope you like it, sorry about the poor lighting, it's been so dingy these last few days, where has our summer gone? I can assure you the colours re much more vibrant IRL! I'd best get ready for work now, but I shall be back tonight to have a look what you've all been up to over the weekend!

For those who asked, I had a wonderful time at my mum's garden party. She seemed to have a really good time with all her close friends and family!


Hugs, Vicky ~x~

Gorgeous card Vicky! You know I love Swiss Pixies and MME, so it ticks all the boxes for me! :)

So sorry I've been a bad blogger recently and haven't stopped by.

The weather here is awful too, cold, grey and wet. The dog has gone back to bed in disgust, I might have to do the same!
