Crafting When We Can Challenges #40 = Sketch by Ang

I can't believe how time flies.  It doesn't seem like 2 minutes since I was writing my last Challenge post.  The quality of work from our DT is awesome and if you haven't hopped over to the Challenge you should even if it's just to see their work.

This Challenge our sponsor is the talented Heather from 


We were given our choice of images from the Lacy Sunshine shop and I chose 

Lizabeth with Butterfly Kisses

The theme for this Challenge is a sketch by Ang

My base card is a linen effect white card with the papers from a Craftworks Cards Vintage Rose paper pack.  I coloured my image using the mica paints from The Works.  The bling is from Poundland and the charm is off a mobile phone charm that I used to have on my Glitter Girl ball tool.  The Sentiment if from a sheet of various sentiment but I don't know the manufacturer.  

I nearly had a mishap with this card.  I made the design up on the base layer of paper then went to stick the paper on the base card when I realised the paper was too big to go on the card  DUH!.  I was very lucky that I had enough room to cut away a border from the top and right side so it would fit.  Moral of the story is to always make sure your base layer fits the base card you are using.  I don't know why I decided to make up the design before I stuck my base layer to the card as it makes it very difficult to stick it to the base card using double sided tape.  I think I'm still tired (that's my excuse).
