Here is this week's Sketch and my creations:

For my Petaloo "Color Me Crazy: project I covered a mini photo album using dark blue handmade paper and decorated using some die cuts, and some Petaloo paper wild roses that I coloured with a little fabric dye left over from a tie die project I made the day before. Isn't that a pretty pale blue?

The image on my card is from the Priscillastyles store, and was Copics-coloured. The jar was double heat embossed using UTEE to which I added a little crystal sparkle powdered glitter. Because it is such a girl image I added lots of roses that I sewed on to secure them to the card. The die cut is from Nellie's Choice and I sewed on the sequins and beads. The DP was matted onto white cardstock which I fussy cut by hand.

There are some fabulous prizes to be won so why don't you enter a creation for this week's challenge too?

There are some fabulous new images in the Priscillastyles store that would be just perfect for this sketch so pop in over by clicking HERE
