Crafts 4 Eternity-Recipe 1

Welcome all:-) Here's the first challenge for Crafts 4 Eternity for 2011:-) Michele has a sketch for this week and then she is changing the challenge a bit and I think you will all like it:-) The challenge is to use the sketch I have added below, the prize is a card kit from Crafts 4 Eternity!
I decided to use Crissy Armstrong's, Digital image called "A Good Book" ! I opened up my brand new paper stack from DCWV called Linen Closet for something new, with a piece of doodlebug trim in brown, (which seems to look more like a red/brown in the photo), to accent the card . I distressed the papers just a touch for a little bit of white to show. I used an EK success punch for the flourish accents, and the sentiment and punch are from Stampin Up! Flat backed Rhinestones were added for a little bit of sparkle:-)
I used Copic markers to color in my image, my card is 6x6 inches, on a CS base of Bazzill.
Other Challenges I will be entering my card in are:
Papertake weekly :Anything goes
Stamp something- a weekly challenge: Use a digi image
Cute card Thursday: Use something old- I used the doodlebug trim that I've had for a year and just opened it:-) and my flourish punch that I had to have and only used it one time:-(

Please go by C4E to see what the other DT members have come up with and if you like the sketch why not try it out.
Supplies used: Copic markers, Punches:
EK success swirl punch, punch for sentiment Stampin Up
