thinking of you

My card today is for three challenges:

The sketch I used is from this week's challenge at Sketch and Stash, which I spun around 90 degrees. The papers and stamp that I used are all new and have never been used before.

I am also entering this into the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge and the Dutch Dare Card Challenge, where the challenge in each case is 'glitter'. I have used glitter brads and stickles.

Here is my card and if it looks a little wonky, it is! I hadn't finished sticking it all down properly but wanted to photograph it in the five minutes of available light I had left.

The base card is Bazzill Swiss Dot and patterned papers are from the Sassafraslass ~ Vintage Yummy collection.

I used Daintily and Blossomed to create a double layered distressed heart which I edged with Stickles.
The image is a Gorjuss Girl and I coloured her with my copics and added some more stickles to the wings.
The heart is sitting on a piece of Darling Dear which I matted and stitched with my sewing machine. I also stitched on a strip of shaped border from the papers.
The ribbon trim is from my stash and is held in place at each end, with glitter brads.
Below is a close up of the sentiment and you can also see some of the sparkle on the card. I made the 'you' from chipboard letters which I embossed with Tim Holtz ~ Distress Embossing Powder and then added some stickles.
Thank you for looking.
