There's a fabulous sketch by Maya over at Sketch Saturday this week and I couldn't resist using it to make one of the Confirmation cards I need in the next few weeks.
I used this WOJ image, coloured her with Copics and replaced the holly berries with pearl beads. I did consider replacing the holly then I thought - no - holly is an evergreen, why should it be for Christmas only. I stamped the edge of the circle with Magnolia's New Year Swirl and heat embossed it with clear powder, I then distressed the edges with a mixture of greens and browns distress inks. The papers are by Tim Holtz, the lace is from my ex-local market and everything else is from my stash.
I decorated the inside and made a pocket for the money it is traditional to give on confirmations. I will personalize the card later.
I can't tell you how good it is to be able to do a challenge card. Now I've sorted out my computer, finally to be able to visit blogs and actually see cards perhaps I will be able to do more challenges.
Hope you're all having a great Bank Holiday and have better weather than we have today - RAIN.
