Just for the sake of it!

Well, I've had a pretty good week this week! My Tickled Pink card won at Ike's Art and came in Top 3 at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and my Pearls and Bling card got Pick of The Week at The Stamping Chef! So I sat early this morning colouring, just for the sake of it! I found a fabulous sketch on 'Crafting When We Can' and made my image into a card.

I've used the Bella Broomstick image from The Stamping Chef (again!) and coloured her in black, white and orange to go with my 'Thirty One' paper pad from Pebbles. I've used orange and black pearlescent papers for matting and layering. And I've used a Crafts Too oval die to cut a mount for the image. The stars are a Joanna Sheen signature die - this is the first time I've tried layering the die cuts like that, i've seen it on a few cards recently and quite like the effect!

I will enter this card in the following challenges:
The Stamping Chef - #27 Anything Goes
Crafting When We Can - #68 Sketch
WeDoDoobadoo - #5 Lots of Layers
Dies R Us - #1 Anything Goes

Thanks for looking!
