How Sentimental at OSCC

It's new challenge time over at One Stop Crafts. This week Maggie challenges us with the theme 'How Sentimental'; use a sentiment as the main focus on your card. This is certainly a challenge for me as I tend to find comfort in coloring images and often my sentiment is an afterthought. I admit I really enjoyed the challenge and am pleased with my final card. I found the sentiment over at Create with TLC. Paulette is a digi whiz and offers up multiple freebies every day. If you're looking to play with digis or expland your inventory, you need to pop over and say hello. Don't forget to give her some comment love for all her hard work. I was blessed with some other great inspiration when I created my card.

This week at Midnight Madness I took bits from both versions of the sketch to create my card.

I was inspired by the physical appearance of sugar, and used a glittered cardstock that looks like real sugar.

It's hard to see in the photo, I used Smooch Spritz over the image to pair in with the glittered cardstock.
