SFC - now featuring me!

I am thrilled to say I have been invited to join another Design Team, this time for one of my favourite challenge blogs - Sparkles Forum Challenges. I would like to thank the lovely Angel for inviting me, and for her very sweet welcome. I am thrilled to be part of the team and can't wait to check out all the fabulous entries into each challenge.

This fortnight's challenge at Sparkles Forum Challenge is Punch It.

I have to admit that since acquiring my very first punch - a Martha Stewart butterfly one - I have been sticking butterflies on lots of cards! I love the added dimension they give to cards, not to mention the added 'girlyness'.  Here is the card I created for the challenge:

Copics used:
Hair: E35, E31
Skin; E000, E00, E11, R20
Dress, Shoes, Hat: E02, E04, G000
Stamp: La La Land Marci with Rose

I recently purchased some gorgeous little antique style charms online from a store here in Australia called Scrap Matrix, and was excited to try one out on this little card. As I love photography I found it hard to resist the gorgeous little vintage looking camera charm. Coupled with some vintage style lace and La La Land's Marci with Rose, I've tried to create this card to have an 'olde world' look about it. Hopefully I've succeeded!

To see how the other DT members tackled the challenge, and to add your own creations of course, please visit us at Sparkles Forum Challenges - Punch It. The sponsor for this challenge is Stitchy Bear, and they are offering this fabulous prize:

I hope to see you there!
