Another "Thank You" card!

I made this card for a great friend, who I also have the pleasure of working with, to say "Thank You" for my pressie.

I used the fab sketch from the "Friday Sketches" blog as my "starting point" :

Papers: "Shabby Xmas" Funky Fairy's
Image: The Stamping Boutique
Sentimenr stamps: unknow!
Ribbons from stash
All punches: SU

I am also entering my card into the following challenges:

Charisma Cardz - Anything New - I have used my NEW Miss Jennifer image from The Stamping Boutique

Colour Create - to use Kraft, blue & white. Unfortunately I don't have any craft paper or card at mo as I have used it all (feel a spend coming on!) but have used brown as my alternative.They also had a further option of "texture". Mine has been created using the different ribbons.

Creative Inspirations - to use anything NEW

Now I did learn something NEW . . . well new to me that is ! Whilst colouring my image, I discovered my Sakura pens - glaze & stardust. I wanted to add shading to my image and thought I'd play with my blender pen and it worked ! ! ! I was able to play with the colour to create light & dark without loosing the glittery feel/shimmer from the Stardust pens. Definitely going to use this technique again.

Gotta dash (again) as youngest son is now feeling a little unwell with a stomach age . . . oh I dread tummy bugs . . . !
