I'll never knott miss you.

I have a lovely purple paper with sparkles on it which I wanted to use for this card...it was perfect for the colour plus sparkle challenge. No matter how I tried though I just couldn't make it work with my other colours. I found out other papers and then realised that Jeanie's clothes weren't right, just way too pastel. I've virtually made two cards and only ended up with one to show for it lol.  

The Sentiment is really a play on the song 'I'll never not Love you', no idea who by, but then I hardly know what day it is either. I used brown fibre pen to edge round the layers, to pull them together. The chiffon ribbon and buttons were coloured using the same pens which are sold for colouring stickers. I find they give a nice even cover and don't rub off.

 The plant leaves are coloured with glitter pens, and bits around the flowers too. One of my few remaining AB gems for the dandelion clock, plus gem flowers complete my bling. 
My Recipe :-
DP - Basic Grey, Damask, Cashmere & Exposure
Other papers - stash
Image -  Jeanie from Imag-e-nation
Colouring - Blendable pencils from WH Smith,
Glitter pens - Sakura Tiara
Sticker fibre pens- from Imag-e-nations
Cardstock - 12x12 scrapbook from stash
Gems, Buttons, ribbon - Stash
Sentiment - Inspired by a Song Title
Sketch - Truly Scrumptious (too late for the challenge)

WOW!You put alot of work into this, Lin. You did so well with the paper piecing, I know what you mean though about making two cards with only one to show for it. I do that all the time. I want to make a card to fit a certain challenge but no matter how hard I try to make the color scheme fit it doesn't. So sometimes I have to just make the card and THEN see what I can put it into.
In saying that, that doesn't always work. Like right now Ive got a pretty decent card made and there's not jack that it'll fit into. :-( So I'm just "sitting on it" til I find more than one challenge to put it in....
by the way, I posted your nestie shapes today.:-)

linda... i just read your comment at my challenge. please note... you are free to play in ANY challenge as long as there is BLING. however, the only draw back for NOT following the specific challenge is... you do not go into the prize drawing! but that's ONLY if the challenge is not noticeable. so please come back soon and play. your work is stunning.

hugs :)

About designer papers:
All that really means is patterned paper. It doesn't matter who the designer is after all, they're all designed by someone! But yeah, just a patterned paper is fine. :-)
