Layered lovely !

I always look at the sketch and the DT creations over at CLP sketch challenge and drool over the amazing creations but this is the first time I am having a go myself.
I wanted a sketch worthy of this gorgeous new stamp to make a card for one of my best friends birthdays as she turns 40 next week !

The super sweet image is a rubber stamp from the greeting farm and I coloured it with my prisma pencils and added some stickles and pearly stuff I also added a little dot of glossy accents to the dog's nose to make it look wet ! (if you click the pic you'll see it !)

My papers are from the basic grey porcelain paper pad - so beautiful that they have been saved for a special card !
I added a doily which I inked with pink and peach brilliance ink pads so it has a lovely sheen - I also added this to one of my flowers and my lace to make it match perfectly.

The bling swirls are off cuts laying about on my craft mat - I never run a swirl under anything - I always chop it and use the bits on another project !

I am well aware that it isn't a patch on the DT projetcs or some of the other entrants over at CLP but I am quite pleased with it myself especially since it is a new style for me.

I would also like to add my card to the following challenges;

Charisma cardz challenge
- Inspired by a song - Pretty in pink by The Psychedelic Furs (OMG I watched that film sooooo many times as a teenager !!!)
Delightful challenges - Bling it
Do you stack up ? - Texture
