Totally Gorjuss 62 - Sketch.

Hi everyone and after a couple of weeks not knowing what day of the week it is now I know it is Saturday  and time for our first challenge of 2011 over at Totally Gorjuss.

As this is our first January challenge Net has given us a lovely sketch to follow this week and we are sponsored by the ever generous Joanna Sheen. What would you spend £10 on in Joanna's online store? Why don't you pop over to her store for a look? You won't be disappointed as she has a varied stock and best of all no p&p.

So here's my take on Net's sketch. I needed a card for a special lady so this sketch was ideal. Dolly is the most senior member of our WRI. She will be 80 later this month and has been a member since she was  a teenager. She has been president for many years and latterly vice-president. She is very talented at baking, cooking, growing bulbs and flowers and also at various handcrafts. Since I'm the one who usually makes cards for competitions I said I would make her birthday card. Hope she  likes it. I'm sure she'll be interested to know how I made it!

Not sure if this next photo shows that I 3D'd the flowers?

 Maybe you can see the 3D effect on this one?

I used :-
Image :- Hero Arts.
Sentiment :- LOTV.
Embossing folders :- Cuttlebug.
Lace, ribbon and jewels from stash.
Distress Ink in Dusty Concord round edges and glitter.

Hope you like and I hope you want to join us this week. Seems like a while since our last challenge and thanks to everyone who joined us at such a busy time of year. Remember to pop over to Totally Gorjuss to see who won last time.

I'd like to enter the following challenges :-
Papertake Weekly :- Anything Goes.
One Stitch at a Time :- Anything Goes.
By the Cute and Girly :- Bling it on.

Thanks for looking and if you want more inspiration my talented teamies have some lovely cards to show you this week.
