Pink & Sparkly

Monday, 25 March 2013
Good evening all.  I must firstly apologise as I've not got round to looking at everyone's blogs the last week or so.  I was just taking things easy and left my laptop alone for a bit.

Anyhoo, I've had a little craft over the weekend.  I was asked by a friend to make a card and bracelet for her son's fianceé and the only criteria was to be pink and sparkly!  As always, when I'm asked to make anything girly, I head to my Miss Anya stamps.  I don't have many "girly" stamps that aren't cuddly and furry!  The papers are from an old Papermania set, Henbury Lane.  It had the added glitter sparkles.  Please excuse my shocking handwritten name!

 
 I don't think I missed the brief in pinkness........do you!?  I'm gutted as I should've posted this before today as I used a sketch from a challenge, but it ended Sunday evening.  I apologise for the glare, I had to photograph when I got to work and I think the overhead lighting was a bit too bright.


 Here's a close up of Miss Anya.  I had a slight bleed on one of the bunches, but I don't think it looks too bad.

The bracelet is another Montee Embellished bracelet, this time using hot pink beads and silver lined seed beeds. This does look very sparkly in real life.


My friend was very pleased with both item, I hope the recipient is too.

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.

  1. Wow Sarah - the card is gorgeous and the bracelet is so beautiful. You are so talented. I am sure the recipient LOVED her special gifts.

    Frustrating when we miss a challenge blog deadline - I do it all the time because I am so slow at my cardmaking. I have no idea how people make a card everyday and blog about it. I would get nothing else done!
