My Lovely Friends,

Merry Christmas

Hey I'm back, and it's only 1.30 lol, 
This card is another one for a commission and I've been asked for posh! well I hope this fits the bill!!!!
Again I've left it fairly unadorned, no flowers etc, because they may be posting it and I can't lumber them with loads of postal cost can I?

Challenges,
Whiff Of Joy ~ Sketch,


I thought this gorgeous Whiff of Joy image fit the criteria perfectly as she's certainly elegant, and I've coloured her with Copics and added silver stickles  glitter glue for her bow and shoe,
The edges of the main image are heat embossed using silver embossing powder and I've distressed the edges of the card too, the paper edges are all sewn and again distressed, 
I've tweaked the sketch a little as I usually do lol,
The papers are from the Ella Blue collection by GCD and I've used my Martha Stewart Doily punch on the edges of the brown paper,
The sparkle on the bow really doesn't show at all well on here because the day is so dull,
ribbon is from stash and the lovely charm is from Susie at DCD here,
I'm off now to make some more commissioned cards, so I'll be back soon, 
 Have fun,

Hi Liz, sorry I've not been by for while - your cards have been absolutely gorgeous - why people still buy some shop ones I'll never know. Loving your tones and your commission cards is "posh" - take care. Sarah x

Stunning card Liz - the soft colouring is perfect, and it really doesn't need anything else on there - it's just totally beautiful as it is. Hope you are well, and hope you've got used to the glasses!!

Hi Liz, hope you're well hun!! I've just returned from windy, wet Lancs (Blackburn) to freezing cold Germany - don't know which is worst!!
I'd certainly put Willow with lantern in the posh category, so beautiful, so elegant. Fabulous layout, gorgeous papers and lovely details.

So glad you could join us in the Simon Says Stamp challenge,
