SNS New Challenge Number 136

Today's card is for our new challenge over at Sketch N Stash.  And because I've used a Prima Media Doll Stamp which doesn't really fit my usual square cards, I've stretched the sketch  a bit to an A5 size.
I decided to do  a bit of Paper Piecing and used some co-cordinating papers from a Paper Mania Rose Garden 12x12 pad. This was the stash item that has been in my collection for quite  a while now!
I added some chiffon roses and some Dazzlers for a bit of sparkle!
Added a  few pearls and a die-cut sentiment from the same pad.
Our sponsors for this challenge are the fabulous Live and Love Crafts - a recently new shopping find for me - lots of vintagy goods in stock there!

I don't know where the weekend went - in fact life has been a bit hectic recently!  Did I mention that someone tried to break in but Holly disturbed them, they didn't get in but smashed a pane of glass in the front door - she's been a bit shaken about it , not surprisingly.  What with other stuff, it's all been a bit scary! We have building work going on too, so wondered if the scaffolding tempted him in!

Anyway, enough of that, do go and check out the fab makes of my fellow DT members over at Sketch N Stash, here.  And do come and play along with us- just think of the fab prize from Live and Love Crafts!!

This is stunning Julie. I love the image with her pretty floral dress. Gorgeous papers and beautiful detailing too.
Oh my goodness, no wonder Holly was shaken up to discover someone trying to break in, I would have been terrified! I hope things settle down a bit for you soon.
