Friday Sketchers #9

After receiving so many lovely presents for my birthday, I decided I had better get cracking on the thank you cards! This is obviously a massive excuse to use my new Cuttlebug embossing folders and also my lovely sparkly new Nestabilities!

I made this card using the Friday Sketchers challenge #9 layout. The image is my new Eloise Greengrass stamp from Stamping Bella. I coloured her with watercolour pencils and used Stickles on her wings to give her a little bit of sparkle. I matted her onto a Nestie rectangle and this in turn was mounted onto lilac Swiss Dots embossed card. The card was finished with Sizzix photocorners and tiny tag. Sorry the picture is a little dark - it's really dingy and blowy outside today getting a decent pic proved impossible!

By the way - I need some advice! I've just realised that my stocks of white card are running awfully low. I've had trouble in the past getting really white card to make up my card blanks. So.....I need to know.....where do you all buy yours from?!

Hope you are all having a splendiferous weekend!
