Papertake Weekly , Dawny's Sketch :-)

Time for a fabby new sketch by Dawny on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)

My Mum has been going to Weight watchers for a few months and has lost 14kg !!! she has gone from a size 18/20 to a 14 !! I am so looking forward to seeing her next month :-) When I told Amy she said ,,, OH NO ,,, I like my Grandma cuddly :-) I am so glad she has lost the weight though, she has also started going to keep fit classes and swimming ,,, so I am very proud of her :-) I made this card for her ,,, perfect image I thought :-)

I flipped the skech and had to move the sentiment down as it didn't look right in the proper place :-)

I used my new Happy Hoppers stamp from Simon Says Stamp this one is called Light as a Feather. I coloured the image with copics and added glaze to the scales and used a copic spica pen to make faux stitches.
I have no idea who's paper the background one is but the side panel and orange are Basic Grey from the cupcake pad. The flower is prima, sprayed with pearl glimmer mist and I added stickles for extra sparkle :-) The sentiment was cut on my cricut. I finished with some large pearls from Bunny Zoe Crafts :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-) Helen and Christine, our Guest Designers, and the DT have made some fantastic cards for you to see so pop on over to the PTW 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 :-)
