Another Challenge!

O.K. I have been trying to upload this post since late Monday night, Blogger and IE apparently are not friends right now?! But here we are finally ;-)
Another day, another challenge, that two this week and yes, I know! Challenges are like buses at this here blog but when I saw Mandi and Chrissies challenge this week over at LIM was Punches and/or Die cuts I couldn't resist joining in. As you know though I am generally a more is more kinda girl so please, if this is not CAS enough, do feel free to discount it from the challenge :-)
To begin though I must show you the inspiration for the colour combo of Rich Razzleberry and Wisteria Wonder (I also added Sahara Sand as the Neutral) regular readers  may know I was at Gunwharf Quays the other day and when I was there I spotted this stack of towels in a display area. Crazy lady that I am I stood and took a photo of said display (see Zoe waiting patiently too in the reflection, as well as a gawping me, pritty, not!)
and this is the end result of afore mentioned inspiration
Lots of Itty Bitty Punches, DSP flowers and Rhinestones with the fab new 'Borderlines' flower stems to sit on top of (Borderlines can be seen on page 13 of the MINI catalogue)
Now, you can't really see on the top two pics but I also gave this a generous helping of shimmer mist (shimmer paint mixed with Alcohol) so this photo under artificial light (hopefully) shows the sparkle a little more
Well, that today's card, I am off out today with the girls so I really hope this post goes up on time?? I will like it onto the LIM blog later
Thanks for looking and I really hope this is OK for the challenge
Stampin' Hugs for today,


  1. Ooooh that's pretty! Isn't it amazing the places we find inspiration...if you see someone taking a picture of something weird, it's probably a crafter having a "moment" lol. I'm loving that stamp set...another one for the wish list...*sigh* ;)

  2. This is simply super Sarah-Jane... love the colours, love the design and just love that opulent ribbon!
    Thanks so much

  3. Pretty card & it's true inspiration can come from anywhere.

  4. Lovely card Sarah-Jane. In fact your post inspired me to enter the same blog challenge. It's the first one I've done as I've not been blogging long. Just submitted my entry (number 236), really had fun doing it. Looking forward to the next one.

  5. I love your card, it's so pretty. Thanks for the inspiration x x

  6. Such a pretty card, love the ribbon bow. :)x

  7. This is a brilliant idea, I have a leaf stem stamp, never even though of adding flowers! FAB colours.

  8. Love all of the dainty little flowers! Such a creative idea and a wonderful card!


Thank-You for any comments you may leave, I appreciate the time it takes to do so and I love to read them all :)
