FMS#271 and NBUS#8

Hi everyone!!!!!

A lovely new sketch up at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog!!!!

My card:

I will also be entering my card at Darnell's NBUS Challenge #8Darnell is asking us to use the technique of colouring on kraft and that is indeed a new technique for me.  I have coloured my flowers with pencils, but you can actually hardly see that I have coloured it!!!!  I have used white, a soft coral colour and a deeper pinkish pencil to colour the flowers.  I don't own any fancy colouring pencils, just the old fashioned ones we used at school ages ago, so that's most probably why the colouring doesn't show nicely - IRL it does look better than on the screen.   The bottom part of the sentiment is NBUS.
Sentiment stamps from Inspired by Stamping.
The flower stamp is from a local craft shop, Great Impressions.
Finished my card off with black plastic dots.

Such a pleasure having you here - hope to see you again, soon!!!!

Hi everyone!!!!

Nearly one o'clock in the morning, but before I'm off to bed I want to share a card I've made for the current sketch up at the Freshly Made Sketches Blog!!!!!!  This is the lovely sketch by Linda:


I've flipped the sketch on it's side and made a landscape card.

I absolutely LOVE these flowers from CAS-UAL FRIDAYS Stamps!!!!  Coloured it with my GraphIt pens.
The flowers that aren't coloured were stamped on the card front using grey ink.  The smaller, coloured flowers were stamped in black, die cut and adhered to the card front.  The bigger flower is on foam tape, as is the sentiment strip. 
Piece of silver mirror card and a blue glitter paper strip at the bottom.
Some rhinestones to add sparkle.

I can hear my bed calling loud and clear!!!!!

So lovely having you here - thanks for the visit - hope to see you again, soon!!!!
