Friday Challenge Time...


Happy Friday.

As you know I had a Summer challenge break and I have been slowly easing myself back in..

One of my fave challenges is Freshly Made Sketches and this week's sketch (#206) and DT inspiration made me rush to my desk to have a play, so I could enter..

Here is the sketch -
I recently bought a set of great stitched flower dies in the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember releases..I love them, but I didn't get a chance to play with them before I left for London.

So I broke them out for this challenge - yes they are NBUS! Initially I was just going with the flowers and a sentiment, but it felt flat, so I got out a Darice spotty embossing folder (it's a strip) and voila! life was breathed into my card.

I loved the outcome so much, I made 3..

A close-up, so you can see the stitched flowers...

Papers - American Crafts and Lidl (Lidl is a supermarket in the UK...)
Bling by Michaels
Sentiments by Simon Says Stamp and Paper Smooches.

Hope you all have a great weekend.. Hubby and I are off out with JT's godparents tonight..tomorrow night we are heading out with friends to keep on celebrating my birthday LOL.
