Light The Way

Soooo, I bring you another weekend blog post, so that I can bring you my blog challenges entry for this week:

I'm entering this card into both the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge blog for this week ( and the Lili's Little Fairies challenge blog (, whose theme this week is 'A Christmas Card for the Girls'.

To make this card, I followed the sketch on the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.  For the backing card I used some pale pink glittery card I had in my stash and then the two panels were done using paper from a freebie paper pack from Simply Homemade magazine a couple of issues ago.

The image is a Lili of the Valley mini masterpiece, which I cut to an oval, as per the sketch.  I then layered this onto a scalloped circle, die cut from my Dovecraft Fairytale Princess paper pack.

Along the top, I attached a piece of pink and white striped ribbon to bring together the stripy paper.  I then stamped three label sentiments using my new Lili of the Valley stamps which I bought today.  I attached these to a piece of sparkly string and attached this along the ribbon.  To tidy up the joins, I then attached three small white roses from Wild Orchid (which I also bought at Lili of the Valley today).

Finally, to finish, and you may not be able to see from the photograph, I added glitter glue to the centre of the roses, the candle flame and the pompoms at the bottom of the girl's scarf.

Happy Crafting!
