DT card for CCC Blog- challenge 6

Okay, I'm really sorry, this week I didn't have new cards to show you because today the children will be starting school, and I had LOADS of books to cover (with other loads to come next week!), copybooks, project books and files to organise and cover as well.. pencil boxes to fill, stationery to mark... and so the list does go on and on.

Having said that.. do you think I could have energy to create and craft at the end of the day?? No, I didn't! And yes, I had craft withdrawing symptoms! lol

But I did blog some things, just to keep in touch.. and to show you some stuff! Anyway.. this is the sketch we had to work on for this coming week:

This sketch was chosen by Chris, at Pollicrafts, this month's grand prize sponsor.
I don't know about you, but the simpler the sketch is, the more difficult I find it to work with! And I spent almost all week thinking what style I will adopt to interpret this.

Anyway, finally yesterday I came up with this card; with light blue, purple and brown as main colours. I never mixed these colours together, but I like the effect! :) The "I", "heart" and "U" are decoupaged and I glued the surface with a 2 way glue pen, then added fine glitter. I achieved a lovely raised effect.

For this card i used:

DP from stash
Sentiment computer generated
Large brad
Purple pearl brads for tags
fine white glitter
Prima flowers
Brown ribbon
Sudio G clear stamp for flourish
Black pen for free hand doodling around sentiment
Butterfly embellies

I hope to see much more of you lovely creations following this sketch on Cupcake CC You have till next Monday to enter. You can win the grand prize at the end of the month. And while you're there... go and peep on the other DT members' blogs. They have lovely makes to show you.
Thanks for looking, and for taking your time to leave a comment. It was highly appreciated
God Bless

Great card.
How funny we both use the 3 circles down the side to write I {heart} U!
Great minds! :)
