Papertake Weekly Challenge


It's been a while since I posted. I had other things on my mind as my grandfather was in hospital and passed away last week. It's the first time now I feel like crafting again. I tried this week's challenge on Papertake Weekly: Sparkly & Bright.
I based this card on an example I saw at my LSS. I hope you can see it fits in the challenge as I added Stickles on the border of Tilda's cap. (not easy to photograph this)

My supplies
- Stickles Frosted Lace
- Copic markers: E50-E51-E93 (face-hands)
Y28-E53 (hair)
R22-27-29 (red clothes)
G21-YG63 (green clothes)
W1-W3 (grey clothes)
- patterned paper: Lori's candy
- Magnolia stamp: Tilda Santas little helper (2009)
- sentiment stamp: Hero Arts = Kat's candy
