Okay, now on with the show. Creative time has been a little short around here lately, and when that happens, I find that challenges are often just the kick start I need to get creating without too much mucking around and wasting of precious time.
For this card I used two different challenges for my inspiration. The first was the Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #21:
The second was the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #67 :
I used the 'Fifth Avenue Floral' and 'Short and Sweet' stamp sets, an assortment of inks and markers (saffron, pretty in pink, rose red, regal rose) and card (pretty in pink, regal rose, and pink pirouette) and finished the flower off with a half pearl bead from the pretties kit. The patterned card started life as a plain white piece of card, but some stamping and sponging transformed it into a perfectly coordinated patterned piece instead.
Hoping to squeeze in a bit more craft time tomorrow - probably with the help of another challenge or two. Blogging about it though, is a whole other 'wait and see' kind of story!
