C.R.A.F.T. GDT Card - Cerridwen

1st Post of the Day

Morning :)  Here with my first post of the day and my last card as GDT for C.R.A.F.T Challenge, I have thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it :)

Our new challenge for this week is 'Background Text' and again there are multiple sponsors and lots of chances to win a fab prize.  We are sponsored by My Heart Pieces, EyeCandie Creations and Saturated Canary and our Star of the Month winner will receive a prize from Stitchy Bear Stamps.

I was given this gorgeous image 'Cerridwen' to work with and she was just wonderful to colour.  I used a mixture of MME and Prima papers and coloured the image with Promarkers and added shimmery highlights with a Sakura shimmer pen.

The border punch is MS, the dies are Spellbinder and the flowers are WOC.  I followed the sketch over on Sketch Saturday and once I had chosen this to work with, this card really just seemed to make itself :)

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Bunny Zoes Challenge - Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday - Brilliant Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
I ♥ Promarkers - Use a digi

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, and please pop back later to see my second post :)

Glorious shabby chic & I love your shading of her dress.
The tiny sparkly blue bits of the roses are a masterstroke really bringing out the aqua elements of the bottom leafy patterned layer.
