Get Creative Card Challenge May 20th

Good Morning Bloggers !!!! As it’s the 20th of the month its time for our card challenge over at Get Creative and we where given a wonderful sketch to work with. Now I hope you can all bear with me on this one and ignore any grammatical and spelling mistakes in this post as I seem to have mis- placed my glasses ! We had a little party here last night until the small hours and on arising  rather late I may add it seems they have disappeared !! Even the spare pair have legged it !!! So am definitely suffering from bloggers blindness and coupled with well shall we say with  a little over indulgment it all adds up to a bit of a pigs ear in the blogging department. Dont you just hate spell check !!! too many choices and none of them I can see properly so sorry !.

I used some of my new stash from Aintree finally !!  I emossed the background with a lovely new folder from Sizzix ( sorry box in the bin !! ) The stamp is from the vintage oval labels set by Just Rite and used the coordinating Spellbinders die to cut the aperture. A second Just Rite stamp for the sentiment  also with a Spellbinders  label die. I used SU Rich Razzlebury and Marina Mist inks. For the flowers  ( well they where flowers to begin with ) I cut up some Sfragidomania chipboard inked it in Rich Razzlebury and the double embossed it with UTEE. Added some over -sized pearls to the centre and some ribbon from my stash.

Here is the gorgeous sketch we had been given to inspire us and hopefully you !

Do pop over to Get Creative to see the beautiful and inspiring inspirational  pieces from the rest of our Design Team and who knows you may be one of our lucky winners. There’s  a fabulous prize for our lucky winner from the very generous Celine Navarro of Green Frog Studio check out our blog for all of the details.

Right am off out for a spot of lunch , well as soon as I’ve found my glasses and done the washing up !!!
