Simply Shabby

My friend Sylvia introduced me to a site called Pile It On this week. There they list many of the card challenges around on the days they are released. I had a lot of fun checking them out and spent hours drooling over some very talented ladies cards and blogs. This week I thought I would try to “pile it on”.

Starting out with the 2 Sketches 4 You sketch this week I ended up with this gorgeous and simply shabby card. I made the two paper flowers at the bottom too. I didn’t find a shabby challenge in all that

Here are all the challenges used to pull this card together.

Taylored Expressions Sketch #121

Today is Friday and apparently Friday is Taylored Expressions Card Sketch day. Seeing I am on a card kick at the moment and thoroughly enjoying the whole paper scissors glue hybrid thing I am going to play along.

Discovering all these fabulous sketch challenges it really a lot of fun. Could get expensive too – all the wonderful eye candy products are very attractive. I think Copics may be my next big thing. 😀

Here is what I ended up with working from the Taylored Expressions Sketch #121

It is for someone very near and dear to me who is heavily on my heart at the moment. I wanted to make it special for her and did some extra layers to the flower. The butterfly is repeated 3 times, with a little pearl glitter glue added to pretty it up. I hope she can get a little lift from it.

A little lace and some blanket stitch around the edges of the sentiment circle for texture. The sentiment stamp is another digital one made by “moi” and there will be more on that later in the week.

Adore that little butterfly!

Digital kit used for papers is Cerulean Lime from Danielle Engebretson. Floss is DMC, Inked edges are with Versacolour and the glitter glue is CTMH.
