Happileigh Scrappin' Challenge HLSC #11

Again, I must apologise for being late with my post for the latest challenge over at Happileigh Scrappin' Challenges. Paul and I went for a lovely weekend away and stayed at an old mill in Somerset, it was so quiet and peaceful and we even went to the seaside :)

We've got our 1st ever sketch challenge this week and Leigh has given us the choice if a simple version or a more fancy one. I had intended to do the simple one but my card sort of grew all on it's own and it was a great sketch to work with.


Leigh has got some great digi's released into the Happi Scrappin' Store this week, however I chose one of the gorgeous digis from last week, Jenny Jeans.


I chose a colour scheme of blue and brown and coloured the image with Promarkers. I cut the image out using the 'Out of The Frame' technique which I have done for the first time following a tutorial I had seen on another challenge blog. I always thought if your Nestie was too small you couldn't use it to cut out your image, how wrong was I? LOL

Anyhoo, the papers are from Creative Cardmaking magazine. The big gems are Paperchase, the little gems and sequin flowers are from a Let's Make Cards pack. The swirl is actually 2 double sided Doodlebug stickers that I have added glitter to. The paper flower was one that I made by cutting a swirl out of a circle. It is the first time have made one of those and I am not sure if it looks right but it has a lot of dimension. I added a bit of silver marker to the edge. The ribbon is a chocolate velvet which feels so lovely and last but not least the sentiment is one that has been recycled from a shop bought card.

Please do take a minute to have a look at the rest of the DT's cards as there are some beauties on there and I hope we will see your entries in our challenge this week.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-
