Cupcake Challenge 143

Hello everyone, over on Cupcake Challenge 143 we have a theme of bookworm and we would like to see book/reading related cards or projects. This week we are sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store and they are giving us the fabulous prize of a £10 gift certificate. I am also entering this card into the following challenges; this week's Simon Says challenge has a theme of sparkle and shine, and A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 152 has a theme of anything goes.

For my card I decided to go with a slightly different design.... its kinda growing on me but I wasn't sure about it at first.....something doesn't look quite right and I think it is maybe a proportion issue!!! I use Willow with book from WOJ and she is coloured with copics and highlighted with stickles. I used a spellbinders fancy tag to cut the shape for my sentiment and I sponged it with tattered rose distress ink for some definition, then stamped a Magnolia sentiment. The DP is from Dovecraft and the ribbon and jewels are from my stash.

I made this bookmark a while ago, so I decided to make my card to match it!

This month our icing on the cupcake prize is sponsored by Crafts U Love who are giving us a £15 voucher as a prize, and all you have to do is enter at least one of our challenges this month to be in with a chance to win.
