Just about getting this card entered in time and it's not like I've not had all week to enter it!! But this morning I found the perfect image to use and well, the rest is history!

This is the sketch for the current Papertake Weekly challenge:

And I've used papers, sentiment and image from Love, Marriage and More from Polkadoodles which will be released on Sunday on Create and Craft (details in my sidebar). And as it is a really simple sketch, it just asked for a big red ribbon and big bit of bling to be added!

The big bling heart is actually an earing, or to be precise, part of a set. I bought two pairs - one like the one on the card and a matching red set from Asda last week, reduced to £1!! So that is 25p each for a big bit of bling! The backs of the earings fold virtually flat and are great for adding onto cards as they work a bit like brads! So I am well pleased with myself for that find and shall be getting some more tomorrow morning on my way to work!!
I've added a little drop here and there of White Opal Liquid Pearls on the chandelier. The sentiment says Cherish just in case you can't make it out!
  • All printed elements including sentiment and topper: Love, Marriage and More from Polkadodles
  • Ribbon: My stash
  • Big bling heart: Asda earrings
