ABSC004 - 1st post of two today!


I wanted to post this card today and at 3pm this afternoon I'll have the Stamp TV CentreStage Blog Hop to post. So two posts - the blog hop will be up for at least 24 hours!

This is my card for Andrea's sketch challenge on Annabelle Stamps.
I know in the US you're into Autumn/Winter cards but here in the southern hemisphere we're ready for light and bright to match the glorious sunshine we've been enjoying. So my card uses a JustRite stamp from an oval set called Thinking of You.

I left off the outer oval stamp and just stamped the centre, using Memento Tuxedo Black and colouring with Copics.
Card used as follows: GKD Pure Luxury in pure white for the base with layering weight for the stamped image. SU Lavender Lace and the DP is from a KaiserCraft 6x6 Paper Pad Lilac Avenue Collection.
I used an EK Success punch for the double lace border and some pearl sprinkles for the embellishments.

This card was photographed at the end of the day as the sun was starting to drop, you can see a little bit of shadow but the Lavender colours are pretty much true.

That's it hope you'll come back later for the blog hop!!!
Till them.........

How pretty. Love the soft colors. It's refreshing to see this as yes, we are heading into winter now so this makes me think of what lies ahead in the spring and gives me something to look forward too. Thanks for playing with the sketch challenge.
