Daring Cardmakers to Get Sketchy in a Secret Spotlight!

I'm late!! Guess who forgot to press the 'publish' button for this post and just left it in draft format? Doh!

I'll get straight to it today and say Woo Hoo! Yes, I have to say thank you to some people before I get on to my card. That lucky streak hadn't quite gone away after all. I'd had the 'icing on the cake' last week with several winnings, but yesterday I got the 'sprinkles' and 'the cherry on the top'!!! Can you guess I'm hungry as I write this? :) I had 2 more wins yesterday so a big thank you goes to Suzi and Vikki's Christmas Challenge for picking one of my cards as the winner for challenge number 2. I'll be doing a 1 week GDT spot with them this coming Saturday. Thanks ladies. Then I had the mega surprise of winning the Basic Grey Challenge and a heap of Magnolia goodies. Wow! Thanks so much; I can't wait to get inky with those. How lucky can one girl get????I was also going to post an award that I've won today, but I'll save that for tomorrow.

Phew! Back to reality now. That lucky streak must be over with.

Today's card is for :

Get Sketchy Challenge - the sketch (rotated by 90 degrees)

Saturday Spotlight - Teeny Tiny (small stamps and pearls)

The Secret Crafter - Monochrome tones of one colour and white (Hope you forgive the little bit of green that crept in there).

This is the New Home card I made for my daughter. It's a bit of a 'back to basics card' with no distressing, roughed edges or sewing. It made a lovely change to do something like this.

Items Used:
Stamp: Freebie with Craft Stamper Magazine September 2009
Card Stock: 3 shades of purple from the Papermill
Prima Hydrangeas and Roses
Lilac Stickles
Distress inks: Dusty Concorde, Milled Lavender, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Black Soot, Brushed Corduroy
Leone Em Ash Branch punch
Computer printed sentiment
tiny 3mm pearls

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
