New Challenge #124 at Glitter N Sparkle

So Sorry,
I had to take a week off last week
for personal reasons,
both Emotional and Health.

Glad to say that I'm feeling slightly better now,
than I have done in quite a few days.
Just need to catch up on my sleep and fingers crossed
I should feel back to normal,
(well normal for me lol).

So this week I decided to follow another Sketch,
so hope you like the end result.

The Image this week reminded me of when I was a girl
living in Fife, Scotland,
playing with my kitten Smokey.
As you can imagine he was a fluffy grey kitten with
a pink nose.
And he really did love chasing the Marbles,
especially downstairs while someone was walking up them.

The Theme at
Gems And Glitter

Our Sponsor this week is:-

Aurora Wings who is offering
$10 Gift Certificate from her store.

My Project this
week is:-

Windows To The Soul (Innocent) Digi Stamp
from Aurora Wings
(our sponsor)

To begin with I used an A4 Sheet of Cream Card
which I folded in Half and cut to make 
a 20 x 13cm Base Card.
Next I decided all the Papers and Card 
I was going to use would be from my Scrap Pile
(and trust me like any crafter knows this is huge lol).
So I cut a 13 x 10cm piece of
Wood Grain Embossed Card
then a 12.5 x 10.5cm piece of 
Embossed Bark Effect Bronze Paper
and finally a 11 x 8cm piece of 
Glitter Polka Dot Paper
(Safari Kids - Matstack with Glitter)

Then I printed my Image
  on White DC Paper
and coloured it in
using my Promarker Pens

                                                           Marbles -  Meadow Green

Because I wanted to  try and attempt a Vintage look,
I distressed all the Cut Rectangles with
Then over the top I used Distress Inks,
for the Cream Base Card and the Image I used
Antique Linen Ink.
For the Wood Effect Card I used 
Walnut Stain.
And on the Bronze and Polka Dot Paper I used 
Vintage Photo.
(All Distress Inks - Tim Holtz).

I used a 2cm Cream Lace to wrap around the 
Wood Card at the Back,
and for the Front a 1cm Brown Satin Ribbon,
(both from Boyes Haberdashery)
and to make the Bow I folded the little scrap of ribbon left 
and joined it in the Middle with a 
Bronzed Brad with Brown Gem

To finish off I used Holographic Copper Glitter
on the Collar of the Girls Dress,
and Penny Copper Glitter
on both the Cat and the Girl's Bows
(both from Glitter Magic).

For the Marbles I used a selection of
4mm, 3mm, 2mm Crystal Flat-backed Rhinestones
and 1 Crystal Dew Drop at the Front
