Time to Play!

I had a few minutes home alone before heading to the dentist today, so decided to play along with a couple of challenges and make a quick card.

I liked the look of the sketch at I heart Sketches and decided to use the color inspiration from the Black with Two Challenge Blog.

The die cut rose and leaves, the white oval and the scrap of green paper were already on my desk as they were left overs from a previous project.  Also on my desk already was my corner rounder punch, my scallop border punch and the rhinestones.  So it all fell together quite easily for a change.



Stamp:  Unity Stamp Co KOTM
Paper:  Stampin' Up and Bo Bunny
Other:  Rhinestones, Olive Ribbon, Flower and Leaf Dies, Watercolor Pencils, Scallop Border Punch, Round Corner Punch

Other Challenges:
Addicted to Stamps - #52 Make Your Mark where I have chosen to use my Water Color Pencils to add color to this stamped image.

Isn't great when a card comes together like this. I really liked the subtle use of the gems and the added water colour really dies look good on this image x
