Friday Freebie - 068

HI Everybody,

This card is truly sparkly and the photo does not do it the justice it deserves.

The stamp is from the Sheena Douglass  "Little Bit Sketchy"  range and this is her  Through The rain  stamp set

When I first showed this card somebody wrote to me and said  "What a pity you smudged it ...."

Nope !!  I didn't it is supposed to be like rain dripping off the words and I embossed them in gold.

The background is also stamped and then added with sparkly glitter ...  but you will see what it is like if you add your name and leave me a comment to win it

You wont be disappointed with it.

A name will be chosen from those comments and the winner announced tomorrow.

You will have 48 hours in which to claim the card and then I will need your full name and address complete with country and post/zip code.

More tomorrow...

Hugs xx

  60. Hi Christina .....Thank you for putting me in the drawer to wim this beautiful card. Like all your others, this one is exceptionally beautiful. I really love the colours in it. Have a wonderful weekend

  61. Thanks Christina for telling us about the "smudge". I have a stamp from Heartfelt Creations and it has that same sort of thing. It's a kind of guy stamp and went with a cowboy line so think it's supposed to look rustic. I like this as it does look like rain.
    U always make such beautiful cards. I love them all!

  62. Hi Christina, goodness I thought I'd slept through til tea time with all the people ahead of me, then I remembered what day it is.
    I would love to see what this card looks like close up as it does look as though it's had an accident with a wet cloth. Still I've a good a chance as any of the other 67. Lol
    Hope you have a great weekend. X Ros
