not a card

MMSC#81 sketch this week is the layout I used on this calender - the simple one. Another of Delicious Doodles' images, "Winter's Wonder". I saw this in their blog hop the other day and had to have it - The Snow Leopard did it for me. I coloured the image using some metallic pencils, cut it out and mounted onto a lace covered lilac card stock then framed her with some bronze glimmer misted purple. Bronze and purple dewdrops to finish. This was then all mounted onto a pearlised bronze paper which in turn was mounted onto more bronzed purple. The ribbon and lace trim and dewdrops are all from Crafty Feelings.

The corrugated card, eyelets etc all from stash.

I am entering this into the challenge over on Midnight Madness - their sketch #81
Make it Crafty have an "Anything but a Card" challenge so entering this into that as well.
