Simply Stampin' - Challenge #4.

This week's challenge at Simply Stampin' is a sketch
And here is my card

I sponged a background directly on to the card blank using Bashful Blue and Certain Celery ink. I made a mask for the sun using a post it note cut in to a circle. I then added a piece of Very Vanilla ribbon which I knotted at the end. The main image is again sponged with Bashful Blue and Certain Celery and the the large image from Just Believe has been stamped in Old Olive. I then used Old Olive to sponge around all the edges. The small flowers are punched out of Night of Navy and Bashful Blue card stock using the Boho Blossoms punch - I added a little bling to the centers of each one. I then added the sentiment in the corner.
Did everyone enjoy their Easter break and the glorious sunny weather? It's a bit overcast here today but I shall still have to water my garden - I don't think I have ever had to water so much in April before!! I bought a gorgeous new, red Peony at the end of last year and this is the first time I shall see the flowers IRL - they are my favourite flowers so I am very excited and I keep stroking it and talking nicely to it! Hee hee - I'm not really mad honest! - See you soon - Jacqueline xx.


  1. What a lovely idea to put a focal image on top of your sponged and stamped scene! I think mother nature is getting a bit confused - this is summer isn't it? Expect winter in July!

  2. I love how your card - the raised focal image looks great. Thanks for taking part in this week's Simply Stampin Challenge....x
