Get Creative March 20th Card Sketch Challenge

Hello lovely ladies !!!

Thank you all so much for your healing hugs and get well wishes I’m pleased to announce that after nearly two months of being ill and miserable I’m finally feeling well !!!!! Yes the mange has finally deserted me and gone in search of pastures new . So without further ado I’ll get straight onto the subject at hand which is the new card challenge at Get Creative , yes you heard right, no whingeing or moaning or feeling sorry for myself rest assured this will be one quick post !

Our lovely leader Irini has created this wonderful sketch for us to follow


Here’s my take on the sketch


The image was created with the aid of my Cameo and cut into four, coloured with Copics, I stamped and die cut a little butterfly and coloured also with Copics , glossy accents  added hither and thither, don’t know if you can see the thither but if you look closely you will see it !

Four tarty crystals in the centre and a touch of layering and there you have my little kitschy card. This photo does not do it justice it’s ever so classy in real life,  honest !

The winner of our challenge will join us as guest designer for May.

Do pop over to Get Creative and see what the other DT members have come up with and welcome our guest designer Meletini who has created two fabulous cards for us.

That’s all from me folks off to Pilates, something I haven’t done for two months now so wish me luck !

Take care

  5. Hi Marie. So good to hear that you are feeling well and that nasty bug has flown the coup!! Love your card … such wonderful, vibrant jewel tones … and those crystals are gorgeous! Lovely design and always inspiring. Loll xx

  6. You say tarty I say classy!
    Full of Easten Promise and so gorgeously coloured.
    Wonderful creation.
    P.S. Are you behaving yourself. Probably a silly question Heh! Heh! Heh!

  7. Fabulous colour and brilliant interpretation of the sketch, I love this Marie! So glad that you’re feeling better, not before time! Hugs Gay x

  8. Hope you didn’t overdo your pilates – I mean a woman of your age needs to be careful, we don’t want you doing your back in! Your card is an explosion of turkish delight – yum! Not tarty – just tangy! xx

  9. Anita got it in one with Sumptuous, and I could copy her spelling of it :0)
    The pattern has not suffered from being chopped up into four and love the tarty bling too. So good to hear you are finally feeling fit again…. Not sure that will be the word after rejoining Pilates though!!! :0)

  11. So pleased to hear that you are now feeling much better, Marie.
    Your card is a gorgeous little masterpiece! Love the beautiful jewel colours, and yes, I can see all the glossy accents…which add lovely dimension and texture to your design. Your fab ‘tarty’ bling finish your card off perfectly!
    Pilates is good! Hope it went well 🙂

    Thank you for your kind words on our loss of our sweet girl, Cookie. We are all missing her so much, and life has been so miserable without her around. We were all in shock, as she had just had her check up at the vets, and they said she was marvellous for her age xxx

  12. How lovely to hear that you’re up on your pins and not wondering around the streets in your PJs any more Marie! You’ve come up with a stunner in this card – I love the jewel colours as well as the actual jewels and the hither and thitherness of the glossy accents is a touch of your usual genius! Vicky x

  13. LOVE this one, Marie. A little different with the shapes which is always nice and the colours – well you know me and colour. Another little “Miracle by Marie” — not a bad handle … what do you think? Sorry spring as not arrived in Greece. Soon, Marie …. soon. hugs, Donna

  14. So pleased to hear that you are feeling well again! Your gorgeous colourfull card (love the bling in the middle!) reflects your newly-found well-being!

  15. This was definitely a “wow” when I saw this one, it’s gorgeous Marie and has a very luxurious look about it! I love the rich colours, and the tarty crystals in the centre are far from tarty!

  16. Oh this is fantastic, love the bling! Now with a bit of luck I’ve finally got WordPress sorted out and this comment will stick! Also a little bird tells me you might be at Port Sunlight this year, do hope so will the promise of a drink of coffee clinch the deal? XOXO Zoe
