The Next Level


How are you all??? Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. As my Son has just said to me, we are now in 'holiday mode'! Schools finished here yesterday, so now we have 6 weeks of rest and relaxation! ha ha ha!!

No, I will enjoy the hols and make the most of them. I will hopefully still manage some time to craft in the evening but my days will be filled with picnics and day trips and water fights!! Sounds idyllic eh?? Maybe sometimes it will be!

Onto the card! I made this card folowing the sketch from The Next Level. I decided I hadn't used one of my Sarah Kays stamps in an age, so it got a wee shot out of its box. Coloured with the usual prismas and the edges are inked with Distress Ink 'Tea Dye'.

All of the papers are from my new set from MME 'Wild Asparagus'. They kinda scream 'shabby chic' to me, so that is where I went with this card. A bit of sewing, distressing and lace and pearls and there you have it!

For the first time I used abit of a digital kit on my card. Not as scary as I thought it might be! The butterfly is from a digital kit that Scrapagogo were giving away free to subscribers. Again the edges are inked and I added some Shimmerz to the wings.

I hope you all have a great weekend. The sun is shining now...so looks like it will be a scorcher! Enjoy!
