Lothian Crafts Online

Hi Folks
Back again for my second post of the day.  Please scroll down for my Imagination Crafts challenge post.

Today sees the start of a new monthly challenge over at Lothian Crafts Online.  Our theme for this month is:
Use the provided sketch layout
The prize for the winner is a fabulous die.

Here is my inspiration project


Here is the sketch layout for the challenge.  



I used one of my favourite colour combos for this one, pink and kraft.  The backing paper is from Tim Holtz and although you cant see it very well I did add some glitter to each corner before using my corner punch to round the edges.  I have had this Tim Holtz paper pad for about 12 months.  This was then matted onto kraft card.  The image is a topper that was in my stash and this was matted onto some more of the Tim Holtz paper and then kraft card.  I die cut a Marianne Creatable birdcage and distressed with some acrylic paint and frantage.  My other embellishments are some Marianne die cut butterflies and some flowers from The Hobby House.  The sentiment is from Papermania.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Lothian Crafts Online to upload your entry.
