Challenge *13* Lilian's Sketch

Over at the Sugar Bowl this week Lilian has created a pretty sketch for us to work with and the option is Kraft paper. I just love the look of this stuff but always forget about it!! (LOL)For this card I have used a new Leanne Ellis stamp called 'A little hug'. I think this is my favorite of them! Such a cute image. I have tried to go alittle artsy with this one as these new images are pretty artsy. I have added glimmer mist to my flowers, purple blocks and the main image. It bled alittle on the main image giving it a washed out look but I liked the way it looked so I kept it that way! I used hydrangea which is a blueish color. It matched my MME paper perfectly! I must admit that I am not a fan of purple but this paper is so pretty I just could not resist! I also embossed lines around my card on the Kraft paper but it didn't come out so good in the picture.

Paper: My Mind's Eye
Inks: distressed inks, Glimmer mist
Accessories: ribbon ~ Micheals, pearls ~ Basic Grey, pins ~ Walmart


Please stop by and see the DT cards ~ just fabulous as always.
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope everyone has a fabulous week-end!! (If I can't get on here again! LOL)

I love your color combo Kathy and gorgeous coloring with distress inks! Your whole card turned out just beautiful with the image you used. Have to buy those. You know, I might just really buy those Glimmer mists too, sigh, I keep putting it off. You tempt me.. Really artsy card! I am so happy and proud to be a fellow Sugar Sweetie! Have a great day!

This is beautiful, Kathy. I love this image, and you've created a fantastic card with it!

I don't know why, but I find purple really hard to work with. You've done a fabulous job.
