Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #36

It seems to come around sooo fast... the weeks that is! I'm now enjoying my 30th week of pregnancy and to think that it's all so close now is HUGE!!! I love being pregnant and I'm not really wanting that all to be over but... that's how time goes isn't it?? FAST!!
It's the same for these challenges, Karen from "the Sweetest thing" has her latest sketch challenge up and I needed to make a special Thank you card for Leanne, a wonderful customer of mine who is teaching me knitting!!! I am loving it!! SO much fun!! Anyway she's a BIG fan of purple so that's where I got my inspiration from. This is a layout that I would never think of, but WOW it really works great!!
I water coloured the flowers for the main image and then added Crystal Effects to give them the shine, markers are great too for this one when only wanting certain words and with a bit of bling it was done!! YAY!! :0)
Here is a closer look at the crystal effects! It is a great product to add that little extra to your cards, especially with flowers and fruit!!
I hope you're having a wonderful day and looking forward to the great weekend ahead! Catch up with you soon,
