Sketch Challenge at Simply Stampin'

We have a lovely sketch to follow this week at Simply Stampin' - take a look

Here is my card

I started out with a 5" x 5" card base on to which I added some Poppy Parade card stock and some of my new Sale-a-bration paper.  Then using some Very Vanilla card stock I stamped the two sentiments from My Friend in Lucky Limeade ink. I also used Lucky Limeade for my leaves, more of the Poppy Parade and DSP for my flowers. I added a little sparkle to the flowers in the form of flat backed gems.
I used at least four paper punches too - 2 Step Bird, 5 Petal Flower, Boho Blossoms and the Scallop Edge Punch.
There are some fabulous DT cards over at Simply Stampin' and they have a Guest Designer. It's a lady I have been following for a couple of years now and she does fantastic work - Monica Gale. Please pop over and take a look - I promise you won't be disappointed.

I've been feeling very chilly today so I 'm going to light myself a fire and curl up on the sofa and read for the rest of the evening. My husband is on kitchen duty and as we speak is poaching salmon steaks and stir-frying noodles mmmmm can't wait!!
Bye for now - Jacqueline xx

  7. Oh my goodness, this is GORGEOUS Jacqueline! I can't wait to get my inky mitts on the 'My Friend' set. I'm getting it as part of my birthday pressie from hubby and it is absolutely killing me to know the stamps are squirelled away somewhere in the house! Just a few weeks to go but patience has never been my strong point!
