Card for a friend ...

It's sketch week over at Papertake Weekly, follow the current sketch or have a go at one of the older ones. I used the current sketch  #75 for my card and my card ... well it might just be my favourite card ever! Even better is that it was made for a very special and inspirational friend x  Special cards for special people are always the best don't you think?

I used:
More of the papers from this gorgeous digital kit and the script paper I dug out of my odds and ends box
Coloured my Magnolia with Copics and added extra sparkle with Stickles
All the flowery bits and bobs as well as the pleated satin, ivory rose organza, vintage style lace and ivory faux silk is from the Ribbon Girl shop
I inked all the edges with walnut ink and added even more stickles to make it super sparkly.
The little stick pin up at the top is a Tim Holtz pin, a perfect place to tie on a little scrap of pretty lace or ribbon - love those!

Well that's me done for now, not long until the weekend thank goodness and then only 2 more weeks at work and I have a week on holiday - hoorayyyyyy :)
