Posh With a Present



It's a new month so that means a new challenge at A Die for a Sketch.  The challenge rules are simple - you need to follow the sketch and use at least one die on your card/project.  This is Posh Has a Present, one of Stamping Bella's Uptown Girls.  I love this collection and of course went a little bonkers and bought a couple.... well, ok... maybe 10, but they are so darned cute!  Besides being adorable, they are very large stamps.  This is a 6 x 6 card and the stamp fills it up but to me, that's a plus so I'm happy.


I coloured the image with Copics; the ribbon is from one of Really Reasonable Ribbon's monthly collections; the paper is from one of my all time fave paper collections which is Basic Grey's Little Black Dress; the Memory Box Fresh Daisies flower die is a Simon Says Stamp exclusive.  Finally, I added little bits of Glamour Dust and some Viva Cream Pearl Pen.  Here's the sketch you need to use for the challenge:

Challenges:
Basic Grey - Punch It
No Matter Which - Die Cuts &/or Punches
Stamp & Create - Anything Goes
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Oozak - Sparkle & Bling
My Mum's Craft Shop - Anything Goes
