Just Christmas and Birthday Cards - Sketch #62 Georgia - May 10/Sweet Peas Challenge Green, Pink and Brown

Good morning, can you believe another weekend has passed? where do they go. I actually got time to do a bit of crafting this week, not much but my DT cards, which as usual were very last minute. I hope you had a good weekend, with better weather than us. I have a busy week ahead so I am not expecting much time to craft. Also have a hubby who is not feeling too good, he is off to the doctors this morning, so hopefully we will find out why he keeps going dizzy and can't focus properly.

So another week at the Sweet Pea Challenge. We would really love to see more of you join in with our challenge, don't forget we have a card of the month prize, which means one lucky entry will receive some Sweet Pea Stamps, if your card is chosen for that month. So what are you waiting for? please join us, we would love to come visit you and see your creations.

Our challenge this week is a colour challenge, the colours this time are Pink, Brown and Green.

I have used some papers from a HOTP pad that i've had forever, and i'm loving this adorable sweet pea image. A simple layout, the image has been coloured with my pro markers.

Have added some glass baubles, and some hand made flowers mixed with some punched flowers and co-ordinating leaves. A martha stewart punched border and an elegant satin ribbon to complete.

The addition of stickles to the wings and some glossy accents to the toadstools complete this simple card.

Please join us this week, and for more inspiration visit the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog. Here.

JCBC Challenge Sketch 62
Georgia's sketch

It's week 62 at the JCBC Challenge, and what a wonderful sketch we have for you to work with this week.

I have really enjoyed doing this card.

You all know how much I love my easel cards, so you wont be surprised to see yet another one this week.

I have made a window and used the lovely magnolia wedding couple. what a totally adorable image.

Used some tulle to make some curtains.

Loving my nestabilities hearts, and found some fabulous gold rings in my stash, and with the addition of the dove, again hidden in my stash. A love embellishment and some gorgeous flat backed pearls, give simple elegance.

The inside has been decorated with some DCWV "Love" sentiments and some flourishes.

The last addition of some punched flowers and leaves.

Those of you who visit regularly will know i love flowers, and I am just adoring these lilac flowers, they smell divine and look gorgeous, dont they?

Love all your cards. Thanks for leaving kind comments on my blog. The answer to your question is that the papers are Stampin Up not Basic Grey. Hope this helps.
