Frosted Designs

Now, what seems to have been the recurring theme on my blog for the past week or so? Yes, you guessed it....I have another 'Woo Hoo' and thank you to make. I should have done this yesterday but time was completely against me. So, a big THANK YOU goes out to the lovely ladies at La-la-land Crafts Challenge for picking the Frosted Designs DT card I made last week in their top 3. It was a pleasure to enter your challenge and I am honoured that you picked my card.

Well, I'd better show you this week's Frosted Designs Challenge DT card where the theme today is:

Polka dots and Plaids.

I thought this one was going to be a real challenge for me, but luckily I found the perfect papers so it wasn't as difficult at all. I really enjoyed this challenge and I love the way this card has turned out.

I'm also entering this into:

Sketch Saturday - the fabulous sketch
Crafty Creations - Stitching
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Spring is in the Air (The fairy looks like she is smelling the first flowers of spring)
Papertake - Check this out (the plaids are checks)
Pile it on - Let's See Flowers (The hydrangeas and flowers on the image)
The Pink Elephant - Ribbon (It's all laced up)
Cute Card Thursday - Metal Mania (eyelets and charm)
I love the delicate way the glamour dust adds some sparkle to the flowers in the corner - now why haven't I thought about using that before? I think it also makes the fairy look like she is covered with pixie dust too.

Items used:
Image: Lili of the Valley
Sentiment: Whimsy Stamps
Paper: Bearly Mine
Fairy Charm: Whimsy Stamps
Distress Inks: Milled Lavender, Dusty Concorde, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Scattered Straw, Mustard Seed
Mark Richards Pearls
Prima Hydrangeas
Glamour Dust
Eyelets and ribbon from my stash

It would be lovely to see some of you entering this challenge this week to see the creative way you handle polka dots and plaids. I can't wait to see what the rest of the DT have done with this challenge. Please head over there to take a look and leave them some love.

Thanks for looking
Sharon xx
