Sketch Saturday - GDT - Terry's Sketch!


I hope you are all well and are having a great start to your weekend!

I have had the absolute pleasure of being invited by the gorgeous Terry to Guest Design for today's challenge over at Sketch Saturday! Thank you so very much Terry for this great honour! 

Here is the card I made using the wonderfully talented Terry's sketch!

Thank you so much for this sketch Terry such a dream to work with.
Here is Terry's Sketch

I have coloured my Magnolia image with Distress Ink Pads onto 300gsm watercolour paper.

I have added Star Dust Stickles for some sprinkly spronkly. Also, a touch of Sakura Clear Stardust pen.

The borders are die cut using  Magnolia Doohickey border dies. The oval is a nestie. The leaves are also a Magnolia Doohickey die.

I have decorated the inside of my card too.

Here is the inside left.

Here is the inside right. I have added teeny tiny liquid pearls to the edge of my card.

Thank you so very much for visiting with me.

I want to send huge hugs to you all for your lovely comments. They all mean so much and you are just so very kind mwah!

This card will be available on Ebay if anyone is interested.

Take care and please do go and visit the teamies of Sketch Saturday and see their amazing works for inspiration! Thanks so much again girls for this wonderful honour!
