Sketch Saturday Challenge Card - #35




OMG it has been over a week since I last made a card. Do you know, I have felt really guilty all week lazing around after work instead of card making lol. I did attempt to make a card during the week but my mojo had gone walkabout and I couldn't find it. However as I got paid yesterday I went craft shopping today to all my favourite crafts shops, spent a small fortune. I also had a delivery from The Glitter Pot today with some more stamps and papers lol...aren't I naughty. There's a local craft show/stamp show on next week at The Gordon Craig Theatre in Stevenage which I shall also be attending...I can't wait for that and to top it all off I am anxiously awaiting the release of the Gorjuss stamps.....I wish they would hurry and release them.

Anyhow here is the card I made this evening for the Sketch Saturday Challenge this week using one of my new Magnolia stamps that I received from the Glitter Pot today.
This is also my first attempt at colouring with distress inks...how did I do?
The elements I used are:-

Stamp - Magnolia
Image coloured using Tim Holtz Distress Inks
Papers - Cosmo Cricket "Jitterbug - Lil Suzie"
Flowers cut using Woodware flower punch
Brads - Dovecraft and Papermania
Sentiment generated on my laptop

Thanks for looking and I hope you like the card.
