Dutch Dare Challenge - Sketch

DUTCH DARE CHALLENGE SKETCH
I am not completely happy with this card, i loved the sketch, but think i should have used a different shaped card, my mistake but never mind its done now. I have used one of the lovely High hopes stamps isn't the dragon adorable? I have coloured with my pro-markers with some crystal lacquer highlights. I have used yellow nailheads as embelishments and a greeting from a kit from QVC.
WALLET FOLDER OR CARD?
I made this card to go with some stamped images for a friend. Behind the coloured cracker image is some stamped up images of the same design. I am not sure what paper this is but I adore it, if anyone knows what make it is please email me and let me know. The image was coloured with my SU trush markers and the crown has been highlighted with rangers glossy accents. The large burgundy flower is a punch, and the gold flower inside is a bead cap, as too are the other flowers, with gems in the centre.
Crafty planet glitter glue baubles and the lovely Martha Stewart border punch doyley.


I actually managed to get a few other cards finished that ill post later. Got to go and get ready its the dread grocery shop today. Then I suppose i should do some housework, and some more laundry, before i sit back down at my craft desk!!

Fab cards Linda....love the striking clours/papers.....and where did you get that MS punch? They're like gold dust!

Hee..I've gone back to getting my shopping delivered...extravagant? My time's more important to me so I'll go without something for the £3.50-£5 it costs...so much quicker, easier and no complaints yet...try it...xx
