The Next Level Challenge sketch...........


Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. So happy the weather was gorgeous here it is just so lovely to be able to throw open those windows and enjoy the day.

Well, how delighted was I when Dawn asked me to be guest designer for this week's challenge at The Next Level. So it is with great pleasure that I have made my card for today. I have coloured my image with distress inks. Which I won in Hanne's blog candy giveaway. Thank you so much Hanne I have been hording them but couldn't resist using this little chap for my card.

This is the sketch we are to use which was great fun so thank you girls. xxx

This is the inside I left a space between my card and paper to put my tag in. I have glimmer misted the grungeboard heart.

I have added liquid pearls on my swirls and distressed my paper with vintage photo the circle I die cut using my nesties.

This is the front of my card the text was again from Hanne just right for my tag.

This is the back of the tag.

Before I go I was given these awards by the sweet Maxine. Thank you so much Maxine you are so sweet to pass these onto me thank you. I would like to pass these onto everyone who visits my blog. I really appreciate your wonderful support and thank you so much for your lovely comments they really touch my heart you are all so wonderful!

Well I wish you all a wonderful day and hope you week is a good one!

Thank you again for looking.
