If you have hopped on over here from ELAINE's BLOG then you are on the right track, if not then the first blog on the hop youneed to go back to Elaine's blog to start again!

For my make today I got to play with the utterly beautiful 'Sitting Pretty'. I decided I wanted to try and create a bit of a mystical scene so I had a little play with some vine stamps I've had forever and stamped in an olive ink and then added Sakura Stardust pen over the outlines to add a bit of extra definition. for the 'Sitting Pretty' image I used copics to colour-she is a total dream to colour in-I love all the details on her!

All the papers I've used are Basic Grey the new Hello Luscious collection. In my DT pack this month was also some of the fab Make It Crafty chipboard elements-I have the used the Filigree Jewels. They are so easy to use-I will definetly be stocking up on these! They're also so versatile to alter-I decided to just use some glitter on mine-specifically the Viva Decor in Holo-I think Viva Decor is the fastest drying glitter I have ever used-great if like me you have no patience for things drying!

I am going to enter this card at Cupcake Crafts (challenge is in the garden) and Diva's by Design (for the girls challenge) and also Simon Says Stamp (sparkle and shine).

Well that's it from me! This card will be available for purchase shortly in My Etsy Shop in this section.

Thank you for hopping with us today! I hope you are enjoying the journey.
