One Stop Craft Challenge - Sketch

This week over at One Stop Craft Challenge we have a fab sketch by my teamie Val, and we are sponsored this week by Sassy Studio Designs .  I really enjoyed making this card, and went to town on dies, punches and lots of sparkle.

I hand stitched the papers and hand beaded the embellishments.  I used Prima papers, an MS punch and the frame was cut with my digital die-cutter as the image was just too big for a standard nestie. 

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Digital Tuesday - Spellbound - the flourishes are Spellbinders
Crafts and Me - Summertime

Emerald Faeries - Nice and Girly
Crafty Calendar - Under the Sea

Stunning with those little shells & the way they pick up the detailing of her tail.I can see you are at home with your new toy too. Love the colours on this - I'm just a greenie!! As for all the frondwork - so apt for the image & it adds so well to the feeling of swirliness of water.
