paperplay and friday sketchers plus Paper Cutz

Wow, this is organised for me - 2 challenges in one card. I look at blogs where girls are entering one card into a dozen various challenges, I just never remember to combine more than one... maybe next week I should try a three challengeli card!
So Paperplay asked for a special Birthday card and I've made a diamante monogram card using the sketch from Friday Sketchers, which I turned around to fit my design.
It's quite dimensional in real life - lots of Spellbinders layers mounted on foam pads and just a tiny bit of stamping under the diamante letter using Tattered Rose distress and I've used more of my delicious pearl brads, I'm down to the last dozen so I'll go into conservation mode with them very soon!
This weeks Paper cutz challenge was to make a card for a teen, so mine is for a young teen - using a Mo Manning digi image. Coloured with Pro markers - do you see the little pink dots on the blanket and in her hair? They were tiny seed pearls that I painstakingly glued on and then - doh! I ran it through the Big Kick to cut the square out and squished them all flat. Oh well better luck next time.
