My "Ultimate Card Showdown" Entry

Hello!
I created today’s card for the 1st annual “2 Shetches 4 You” Ultimate Card Showdown that Kazan and Laura are putting on. It was based off of a sketch by Laura.

It is a very exciting “judged challenge”…my favorite kind!
There will be weekly eliminations of sorts, until it gets down to the winners.
This is going to be so exciting to watch!
They will be giving away some really awesome prizes too!





For this card I used a “The Greeting Farm” image that I water colored then detailed out with “Crystal Effects” and 7 colors of “Stickles”. The image is popped several times for a 3D effect. The sky has "chalked in" billowy clouds.
The papers are DCWV “Pocket Full of Posies” and “core’dinations”.
There is lots of stitching in 3 different colors and I added sparkle around the outer boarder. I then finished it off with some pretty flowers, and gem stones.




Please let me know what you think.
Remember…you can enlarge the pictures by clicking on them.
Thanks for coming by.
Wish me luck!! ;)
