Wish Big

Wednesday! :) My day to share a little Quixotic inspiration with you all. Sorry I missed you last week, time just ran away with me. Gosh. The run up to Christmas is non-stop! Anywho, I have something very un-Christmas-y, for ya today. I also have a little confession.. I forgot to use this months sketch. *slaps wrists* I do have a good reason though.. I was no where near the laptop when I created this card. I just wanted alone time with my pens and papers. Can you blame a girl? :)

I used the gorgeous Blush Bonnie from The Greeting Farm. It just so happens that this stamp is on sale right now, so if you haven't got yours yet, nows the time!! When I first seen the Blush Society release from TGF, I nearly died. I put it off for ages, but I'm so glad I gave in and bought Bonnie. :) 

I've coloured her skin and hair using Copics and the rest of her clothing using ProMarkers. Her dress is.. pink!! To match my patterned papers from My Minds Eye. Madison Avenue 6x6 pad.

The patterned paper I've used for the base of my design looked a little bare, so I added some pink scrolls using the Stempelglede Grunge Scroll stamp. Love this for little details. :) I also stamped the cardbase too. I've added some pink twine to the ribbon and down the right hand side - holding the lace in place. There are loads of different twines from WRMK and Divine Twine to choose from over at Quixotic Paperie.

I'd like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Creative Craft Challenges - Real or Faux Stitching
× Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes plus Glitter
× Stamp and Create - December Monthly - Vintage

I think that just about covers it from me. :) Can't stop long. Enjoy your Wednesday, whatever you're doing.
