Freshly Made Sketches #117

Hello Everyone,

I'm playing in another sketch challenge today at Freshly Made Sketches

The challenge is running a little longer to allow for Christmas, so that gives me time, LOL!

Today I wanted to use my Swallowtail stamp on the background of my card.  It's stamped in Illuminate ink which gives a subtle glimmer effect on the dark card.

The cardstock used is Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant and Silver Glimmer.  The Sentiment "Imagine" comes from the stamp set Loving Thoughts and I've added a tiny butterfly to the panel from the Beautiful Wings die as well as a row of  Basic Jewels.  The larges Banner under the greeting was cut with the Hearts a Flutter framelits and embossed with the Snowflake border EF.  The other banners were cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits.

Thanks so much for stopping by today to see my card.  I hope you will leave some comments.  See you soon.


  1. Gorgeous! I just pulled that ink pad out myself for the first time to give it a go & then decided I couldn't make it work. You've found the right image for the glimmeryness of the ink to work perfectly - and I just love the bling you've added! Gee you've really photographed your card to show off the sparkle of the glimmer paper and ink! Merry Christmas to you and your family Carolyn! xxx

    1. Thanks very much, Narelle. Happy Christmas to you and your family too. xx
