My first Blog challenge!

Hi everyone,

i was encouraged yesterday to enter a blog challenge! (you know who you are he he ;-).... couldn't sleep all night thinking shall i? can i do this? ....of course i can i thought when i awoke this morning! ... so here it is!
the Glitter Geek theme is a sketch challenge, i have turned the sketch at an opposite angle, i used a lili of the valley stamp, coloured with pro markers and matt and layered onto a die cut shape, cut a tag shape by hand and embossed and distressed it using dusty Concorde and walnut stain distress inks, with a little lace edge trimming (couldn't resist) glitter and gems to accent this card. The small sentiment is also a lili of the valley stamp and i wanted a subtle greeting so i think its quite fitting for this card ....I really enjoyed taking part in this weeks challenege and  i hope i've met the requirements...wish me luck Bloggers ....X
