Papertake Weekly sketch #45 challenge


Woohoo!! We made it through Monday, and now it's time for a new Papertake Weekly challenge. This week, it's a sketch challenge by the fabulously talented Dawny and  we're being sponsored by the awesome Simon Says Stamp.  I chose to use one of the beautiful Tilda's from the Fairytale Collection from Magnolia-licious. She's #382 Lady Tilda, and I think she just exudes elegance! She's colored with Copic markers. I also used the new Vintage tag from the assortment of Doohickey Dies made by Magnolia. They work so beautifully in my Cuttlebug.


The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts , paper is Basic Grey Cappella, and the ribbon is May Arts silk ribbon. I added some stickles to the flowers, but I'm wishing now that I'd gone with Shimmerz instead. The stickles just wasn't the look I was going for. I added a little charm I picked up ages ago (I think from Michaels) and also used some branch punches courtesy of Martha Stewart, and that is just about it! Oh yeah...the sentiment is computer generated. 

 

That's it for me today! Please be sure and visit Papertake Weekly to see the rest of the fabulous designers creations! Then grab your paper and glue and join us in the challenge for a chance to win a fabulous prize from Simon Says Stamp! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
