Hold on Tight!

Good morning everyone hope you are okay and having nice weekends.  Did you see the Voice last night - who were your favourites?  I liked the first and last singers the best they both gave great performances.

For today's card I have followed the sketch at Lili's Little Fairies:


I have used one of the images from the last release which I won on the blog hop.  I have coloured it with my Copics and Prisma Pencils and added a bit of Silver Spica Pen and some Glossy Accents.  The papers are by Authentique called Celebrate.  I have cut and matted using Spellbinders Large Circles and Star Circles.  I have used the smallest star and the fallout from the Nestie to add stars to the background paper.  I have used my Edgeabilities to cut out some Coredinations for the strips at the back.  I wanted some buttons to match but couldn't find any in my stash or at the haberdashery so I made some with the paper and my Epiphany button maker and added some Baker's Twine to finish.  I thought this would make a male card so I didn't want any ribbon or bling on it.  I will enter this in the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
One Stop Craft - One Image, Two Papers and Three Embellishments
Crafty Catz - Anything Goes
Hot Shot Craft - Young Love
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
Divas by Design - Buttons and Bows
Inky Impressions - Anything Goes
Ribbon Carousel - Anything Goes


I'd like to welcome my new follower - a big helloooooo and thank you!  That is it for me for today no doubt will do a bit of crafting and catch up with you all.  Hope you all have a fab day and I'll see you tomorrow, take care xx
