Stamp with Us Recipe

I must admit I often find recipe challenges a little bit tricky (& I think some other people do too) that is why the Stamp With Us team are dropping them from their challenges, so this is their last recipe challenge which is to use 2 patterned papers, 3 brads & 1 stamp. The papers are from Designer Digitals, the gorgeous stamp is from Lil of the Valley & is called "Fairies - Bouquet" & is coloured in with Prismas & I sprayed her with Crafter's Companion silver spray & glitter which gives her a gorgeous twinkle (but I don't think you can see this very well in the photo). I punched some flowers out of white paper, inked & glittered them & added some brads to the centres.

This card fits 2 other challenges too:
Charisma Cardz - I'm Dreaming of Summertime!
Creative Inspirations - Sketch

A Different Card

I've had a lovely day off today my friend came round this afternoon & we watched It's a Wonderful Life (we watch it every year now, it's become a tradition) & drank tea & ate mince pies. The trouble is as I've said (many times) before there just aren't enough hours in days off or weekends so I haven't done half of what I wanted to do but I have had a great day none-the-less :)

Anyway onto the card which different from my usual style but I do like to diversify now & again lol. This was made for my Aunty who is going through a rough time at the moment. The papers are from Designs by Krista, I used another flower design from Mel & the flowers have been coloured, glazed & glamour dusted. I finished off with a flourish stamp, ribbon & computer generated greeting.

I'm entering this card for 4 challenges:
Sketch Saturday - (can you guess lol) Sketch
ABC - Indigo Blue
Etsy Inspired - Triangle Scarf
Pile It On - Flowers & Flourishes
