Sweet Stamps Challenge #2 Flowers

Hello and Happy Tuesday to you

Today, is our 2nd challenge at Sweet Stamps , I want to thank everyone who joined us last week and I have to say the entries were absolutely amazing!! I also want to thank everyone who stopped by during the blog hop and left me such lovely comments.

Have you checked the blog to see if you won, we had one grand prize winner and then 5 lucky players were randomly selected to win one of Jacqueline Hill's new Wildlife released stamps that the design team showcased on our blogs.

So on with this week's challenge - another pretty easy one to get you crafting.

FLOWERS

We would love for you to show us your flowers, it can be a stamp of a flower or the use of flowers as your embellishment.


I been dying to ink up this beautiful stamp by Jacqueline Hill Swan Family -3009-i
I used Memento Black ink and then lightly highlighted the image with my Copics. For added shimmer I lightly added a bit of Stardust Stickles within the image.

My layout is using this week's sketch at Sketchy Colors and then I used these gorgeous flowers for my embellishment along with a swirl of pearls and a bit of enchanted evening Swiss dotted ribbon.

I didn't add a sentiment as I wasn't sure who I will be giving this to, but will add to the finished inside when needed.

Now you have to hop on over to the Sweet Stamps challenge blog as my awesome design sisters each have an amazing card to share showcasing their take of the challenge with flowers.

I hope you will join us this week, as we have a Fabulous prize just waiting to be given away.
