Frilly Friendship for Christmas!

I had a lovely crafty session with a friend yesterday evening via webcam... {i don't know what i'd do without it, i only have 1 crafty friend who lives sort of near to me, so this is like a lifeline to my far away mates}... anyways enough of my sad life lol
....
She found a super 'sketch' over at Crafty Catz.
I choose to turn it 90° clockwise as i had already coloured an image
which is the Greetings Farm, I coloured with a smudge of distress ink and then copic'ed.
{sorry for the glare in the pic.. had to use the flash as the light is very poor and i've not worked out how to edit in PSP yet!!}

I added a bit of sparkle with my clear sepia pen and some frosted lace stickles.
I framed the 'nestie'd image with gorgeous lace and finished off with some paper roses and a pin i made myself and a punched out circle i stamped the greeting onto.
The papers are DCWV and BG and the sentiment stamp is Magnolia.
This card also fits the Fun with Shapes challenge which is 'Borders and frames' this week and Simon Says Stamp with the theme 'All that Sparkles'.
.....
Thanks for looking and have a fab weekend... i'm off this morning to a 'Sincerely Yours' craft fair in Taunton, it's only a small one but Oyster stamps are gonna be there and i love that shop he he
