A new challenge at Sparkles!

 Hello everyone, I have scheduled this to post on time as I'm
busy at school this week so I hope it works! There is a new
challenge at Sparkles today and the theme is
Monochrome. I love this theme cos I can use all different
shade of black and grey. My Mum and me coloured some
images the other day and I used this one to make a
 bookmark. I tried real hard with the shading on
this one and I really like it but I think I need to practice a
bit more! I used a scrap of paper and a die cut doily, some
punched flowers and some pearls and some peel offs 
for the words. If you want to join us at Sparkles you can make
anything you like and you have a month to join in. We are
sponsored by Crafty Ribbon - here is something about them:
    Crafty Ribbons is a ribbon emporium, we are passionate about ribbons and want to share our fantastic ribbons with others. Our range of Christmas ribbons is second to none.

Remember when we only used ribbons to add a bow to our hair, or tie up a birthday parcel?  Ribbons are now a "must-have" for all types of craft.  Whether your project requires satin, sheer, silk, grosgrain, gingham or polka dot ribbon we have them all!  Lots and lots of different colours in a range of widths.
Need a little bit of ribbon inspiration - then have a look at our projects on our blog,or visit our Inspiration blog,or maybe join in with us at our Challenge blog.  Go on, have a look... It's worth it !
