Not Quite Straight.....


This weeks CCC Digi Creations Challenge is "Not Quite Straight".  
Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps

and the image I have worked with is Beautiful blocks - Faith

I started by colouring the image block with Prismacolor pencils, and decided to mount it on a lacy square cut from pink cardstock

To keep with the theme, I used my ribbons on an angle, and then adorned the card with butterflies and rhinestones.

The glitter that can be seen on the patterned paper is some Tattered Angels glitter paint - which I 'splattered' on - and it went not only on the paper, but despite my precautions, also onto some other cardstock on my desk, and this morning I discovered some on my glasses!!

I am linking this to:

I had hoped to be back sooner than this, but life intervened - the winter lurgies have hit the family!
