Precious one

When I saw Blanche over at Saturated Canary I knew I had to have her. This wasn't just down to the per usual gorgeousness of Krista's designs, that goes without saying, but I had to have Blanche because she reminded me of my sister. I knew I had to have her for my sister's birthday card.

My sister loves girly things and things that twinkle, she's like a magpie. The dress that my sister was wearing in the photo was purple, so out came my purple ProMarker box and Blanche (or my precious one, as I like to call my sister) came to life.

My precious one

Saturated Canary's current blog challenge is a sketch challenge. I love sketches, they help you to make speedier cards, give you inspiration, and are a good starting point for making a card.

I based my card on the current sketch but I did get a bit carried away with elements. I had so many pretty things that I had been collecting for my sisters card that I couldn't decide what to use, so they all sort of got used! lol.  

Lots of shiny things and lots of girlyness to tie in with the challenge over at Inky Impressions, Cute card Thursday blog challenge & Digital Tuesday challenge blog

I decorated an envelope to co-ordinate with the card too.

I love the finished result, it's one of my favourite cards I've made this year.
