LOC Beautiful - Ecc 3

Today I have enjoyed just 'cruising' with cardmaking and made this card for the Sketch Challenge on SCS - it has been 'forever' since I have played along, I have been wanting to use one of the scriptures Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz) sent me in a fabulous RAK.

I used the Layers of Color new release set Touch of Elegance to create my own DP, something I don't do too often, but I should -  I am pleased with the way it came out.  Each layer is distressed lightly and sponged with distressing ink - I love the blue and brown colour combination.

 I added Kindy Glitz lightly to each image to make it 'beautiful' as you can see in this close up.  This also qualifies it for The Corrosive Challenge which is all about bling. I have also linked it to the Creative Card Crew Challenge - where anything goes!!  To fit with the SCS sketch I used Vintage Corners which have also been sponged with distressing ink and added them where the triangles are then added Pewter half pearls. 

So here you have it, the result of one relaxing afternoon of feeling neither inspired or not inspired...just 'going with the flow!!  Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comments - you are so very kind - I love seeing that you have been!  It is so close to Christmas I hope that you are able to find the time to relax and enjoy the festivties and to remember why and who we celebrate!  God bless you!!
