Crafting Life's Pieces Sponsored by Spesch Stamps!!

Hello to you all out there in blogland!!
Long time, no see....
Yeah, not really!!
It's the start of a new month, and the magical Chelsea, designer of those magical sketches over at the CLP Monthly Challenge Blog has made us something utterly fabulous to work with!! We are sponsored by Spesch Stamps this month and have the added treat of sharing the DT floor with the design team of Spesch Stamps, you are in for a treat!!

For this card, I have used a Spesch Hallowe'en image called Rose and you can find it HERE. I had fun colouring her, her hair has these great waves in it, to tuck colour in it just so, just a touch of glitter and a stripe or two with a highlighter pen, and wow!! I coloured her in distress inks, I gave her umbrella an overhaul by modgepodging some black lace over the form of the umbrella then adhering the shape to the image with foam mounts.

The paper is by GCD Studios, the doily and little white flowers are Prima, the pearls are Zva Create and the rest of the items are from my stash.

I hope you have some fun crafty stuff planned for the weekend!! I am really interested in seeing what everyone is doing as far as Hallowe'en and autumn projects are going, I guess I have to wait another week or so, eh? Just a wee bit too soon on that one!! I plan to do some baking and gardening this weekend while the weather is so heavenly!!

I hope you will pop in at CLP Monthly Challenge Blog, the sketch this month is pure bliss and the prize will make you smile in anticipation!! I've posted the sketch in my sidebar, but really, you ought to go over there and see it!! Gorgeous work this month!!
Til next time, stephanne

Stephanie, what a great image to work with and I love what you did with her. So many details, must have taken you forever to put this together. Lace in different textures and colors is wonderful. I love fall and halloween, this is such a fun card.
