Sketch Challenge #5 Take 2!

Couldn't resist another go at Makeesha's sketch challenge - I wanted to use colours other than pink, (which I just can't stop using lately!), and wanted to see if I could make something quite different from my first card here.
So, this is take 2:
Unfortunately, the angle of the photo is not great & it was taken at the wrong time of day for the light....but, oh well, it was the best I could manage.....
Stamps: Eastern blooms, short & sweet, linen background (can't see in this photo though) Ink & card: Taken with teal, apricot appeal, groovy guava, certainly celery, bali breeze dsp Other: Fire rhinestone brads, celery grosgrain, paper piercing tool & mat, sponges, nestabilities circle & scallop circle dies (non SU!).
Oooh, not long now until us demos get sneak previews from the new SU! catalogue - SO looking forward to seeing all the new stamps & stuff!
Have a good long WA weekend!

So here it is:

Stamps: Scribble (doodle) this, Cheer & wishes, polka dot background Ink & card:Rose red, cameo coral, pretty in pink, old olive. Other: dazzling diamonds, fire rhinestone brad, corner rounder, paper piercing tool & mat pack.

Thanks for looking...better go & get dinner organised now...

UK Mother's Day

Fortunately yesterday I was reminded that Mother's Day in England is, in fact, next month. So, unusually for me, I have been able to get organised early and have made this card.

Stamp sets: Boho backgrounds, occasional greetings Ink & card: Purely pomegranate, pretty in pink Other: white taffeta ribbon, fire rhinestones, berry bliss dsp, scallop edge punch, scallop circle punch, photo corners punch. The card layout was CASED from this one by Amy Celona.

Happy Sunday!
