I also went of the theme on http://dutchdare-cardchallenges.blogspot.com/ which were asking you to make a thankyou card.
And finally i chose to use the sketch from http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/ as it looked like a really nice sketch to work with.

I thought id have a go at one last challenge for today, so here we go.... my take on the sketch from http://cupcakecraftchallenges.blogspot.com/ i thought id do something a little less girly.
The card is all pearlescent and looked really good i thought? i used some ribbon i got from craft central, and the stamp is from my see ds collection, again the photo isnt quite as light as i would have liked but not too bad, the card is supposed to be blue/shiny gold and white/gold. i have matted all the card and put 3d squares on the stamped card to give some depth, to finish of the look i just doodled around all the edges with my black stardust sakura pen. i would love your feed back.
Lets get dotty from http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/ which you just had to use dots in your design and as you can see i used dotty paper and embossed some dots with one of my cuttlebug border folders,
And X is for....from http://abc-challenge.blogspot.com/ m/ which was just asking for you to use an x somewhere in your design, which i did in my border around edge of card,
The card and paper in this design is all pearlescent and shines really nice but as usual i couldnt get a decent shot despite trying loads of times.
and last off the sketch is from http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/
