Papertake Weekly Check this Out !! :-)

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge we have a lovely theme for you 'CHECK THIS OUT' :-) We would like to see anything with checks ! :-)
We are being sponsored by Stitchy Stamps Store all the DT were given a choice of whatever image we would like from the store ,,, I chose a set of silhouettes ,, I just thougt these were so beautiful. Amy has recently taken up ballet again and has been asked to take part in a show in Malta ,, so I thought I would give this card to her on the day of the show :-)


I made my card following Aud's fabulous sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge I just thought this sketch was perfect for the image ,,,, :-)



No colouring on this one :-) I will definitely be using these images ha ha :-)I used a Nellie Snellen oval frame using black glitter card :-) The papers are from Funky Fairys, which unfortunately is not around for the time being :-/ The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the gems from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and the sentiment from a Simon Says Stamp Exclusives set :-) I love their sentiment sets ,,, I use them all the time !! :-) The ribbon and ballet shoes charm are from my stash :-)

thanks for looking :-) the DT and our Guest designers have made some gorgeous cards for you to see so hop on over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge to see them :-)

I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)

Such a gorgeous card Lorraine! Amy will love it!

The stamps and the details are fab. Like the papers, so sorry to hear that the Funky Fairys aren´t around. I´m often using their papers.
