Crafting & Tennis

I just love weeks like this. I have a load of cards to get made & the Australian Open has started so I will be toing & froing between my craft room & the tv :-)

My 1st card this week is a birthday card. It is for the wife of an ex-work colleague of hubbys. I have decided to shake the dust off one of my crafting cds.
I have followed the Sketch from Sketch N Stash. The teddy image is from Debbie Moore & I have added dots using the new Pinflair Brass Pearl Wand. I think this will be a very popular colour for me. Here is a closeup of the image.
It has been layered onto core-dinations cardstock & papers from We R Memory Keepers. I have added ribbon, a stamped sentiment, gems & a wooden flower embellishment.
 
As per my usual style I have decorated through to the inside & added a smaller version of the image in the writing space x Clare x
