Distressed and candy winner

Distressed, I certainly was a little while ago as I couldn't get the camera to work with the computer. Tried connecting the camera as usual, inserting the memory stick, using another memory stick, using another camera, all to no avail. Switched off computer, switched it on again and voila, it worked. Sometimes my technical ability is amazing, lol!!!!!

I have no idea how this card turned out so well as I was feeling worse yesterday and every time I looked down I felt dizzy, which made colouring a real challenge. I can't just do nothing though but did only manage to make one card. I distressed and inked all the edges of the BG Euphoria and Capella papers. The image is Star Dust from SN Simply Sassy range. She is coloured with Promarkers and I added some silver highlights with a Sakura clearstar pen. I added some of my fave Paper Cellar raffia lace, organza ribbon and pearls. Sentiment is from the new Tulip range from Do Crafts.

Sketch Saturday
ABC V is for Violet
Kaboodle Doodles Distressing
Incy Wincy Lavender and lace
Crafty Purple Frog Beautiful things (Everything on my card as they are all some of my faves, especially the colour)
The Crafty Pad Lace and bows
Basic Grey Mix and match (2 paper pads)
I love Promarkers Pearls

I am also entering this into the Thank You challenge on the SN group on Facebook.

And now for the winner of my little candy...............................................................
