Wishful Thinking

Today I was really lucky.  Even if my husband left to see his mother with 2 of my kids, the other 2 were old enough and responsible enough that I could still go away for a bit.  I went to a crop day offered by Scrapbook Centrale, with 2 friends Chrystiane and her daughter Shanny.

I colored for a big part of the day and learned a new technique with a make and take.  Of course I wanted to try it out... so I bought the sparkles to be able to do it too.  I had just the perfect image to use it with and found the perfect sketch for it. Here's my card:
I used a great digi image that I found on Stitchy Bear Stamp which is by Floppy Latte Design.  It's called Wishful thinking.
I used Jewel Glitter Ritz powder that I burnished. And the paper is from K & cie.  The sentiment is from Impression obsession.

I used this sketch:
Sketch 171

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Eat sleep stamp - sketch
  2. Digi darlas - Thinking of you
  3. Divas by design challenge - monochromatic (my 2nd and last entry)
  4. Shellys images blog - no punch or die cuts (I always use them but this card was perfect without ;) )
I hope you liked what you saw ;)  Thanks to all my new followers!  And please keep on commenting... it keeps me creating ;)

See you later
