1st Sketch and Stash , Papertake weekly, Stamp Something New Challenge


First of all I would like to congratulate the girls at sketch and stash for introducing a brand new challenge :-)
We were asked to make a card to a specific sketch and use 'something new'. I REALLY wanted to use my new set of clear satmps from 'Stamps Happen'. My mum bought these for me for Christmas from Charmed Crafts I apologise for altering the sketch slightly but i had to for it to fit !! sorry :-/. The dots on the red background card was made using my Judikins bollio and black stazon ink. I also used loads of glitter n liquid pearls which doesn't show up very well but they are there :-)I really like this set but next time I think i 'll use the 'other' hairdo , this was tricky to cut out !!
p.s The Papertake weekly challenge is to use spots !! This fits the bill so am entering it for that one too :-)
p.p, s I am entering it in the Stamp Something new challenge too :-)
Thanks for looking and i appreciate your comments
