I've been looking for a new colour challenge but my wonderful ladies who I follow have not put up a new one yet!! I woke up early to go for my walk but due to the rain I went to the office instead and made this card! I've NEVER done a sketch challenge before so I found it very interesting. It's from another very talented ladies blog I visit called "The Sweetest Thing" by Karen.
I just opened and mounted a new set "Dreams du Jour." I have wanted this one ever since the new cat came out and when my beautiful friend Heather ordered one and I had it in my hands (only for a short time to put it into the bag, he he!) I knew that it was time to order one for myself!! So with that set ready to go and the gorgeous Bella Rose paper, LOVE THAT, I was off and racing.
Actually Heather has inspired me a lot with this card, she LOVES embossing! I really like it too but don't really think to do it in my cards very often, especially just the clear to really add and lift a card. So that's what I did, the butterfly and the Dreams stamp have both been embossed in clear, WOW I love the glossy look it gives. Of course I couldn't go past using the new satin Kiwi kiss ribbon and the new buttons, after all they match so well with the Sweet Bella Style Watch!!
In case you were wondering how I made that scallop edge, it's easy! I learnt it at Convention earlier this year in Canberra. I'll be back soon to show you step by step! Keep watching...
