Sweet Dreamers Challenge ASC 2
Greetings! Hope your week is starting well!
This week's Sweet Dreamers Challenge is a real doozy for me! It is based on a sketch made by Alyssa. Alyssa is ten years old and quite the crafter! Her mom, Tami, is also part of the blog group. Alyssa now has her own blog and offers sketch challenges each week. She has done a beautiful job this week and Sweet Dreamers wanted to participate.
I have done maybe two other sketch based cards so challenge was an understatement for me on this one! I started with the dove die cut and went on from there but I had no clue it would take me to "Bling City" I just decided to go big bling or go on to the next challenge!
So I did a shadow die cut of the dove in silver, used silver card stock for the background and embossed those with the CB. I had the sequin trim and silver ribbon in my stash. The flower is punched with a MS punch and then embossed with silver powder as is the dove. I adhered the flower to the card with a crystal brad. It doesn't show up too well in the photo, but, trust me... in the light you need shades for this card!!
I have absolutely no idea what I will use this card for but I had a blast making it! And I loved that I had to get out of my comfort zone to create! Even my animals have some sparkle in their coats as they all decided to visit as I was embossing! (We are easily entertained in my house!!)
Thanks, Alyssa, for a great sketch! I am so proud of you! Now you have to promise not to make fun of the old lady with all the shiny stuff on her card!! LOL!!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my bling adventure with me! I'll try to tone things down by your next visit! I can make no promises though... this was so much fun!!
Blessings to you,
