PPA2 Sketch Challenge

Happy Monday! Well hmm who is actually happy on a Monday? I know I'm not lol, and today is so wet and cold brrr. A few more weeks and it will be Spring here in Australia YAY I love Spring. Anyway I came accross this awesome challenge blog called Pals Paper Arts its a group of very passionate Stampin Up demos who like to inspire Stamping pals. Primarly they like you to use SU products but do welcome other products. I LOVE the idea of only using SU products and can see myself playing these challenges on a weekly basis. So anyway this week it is a sketch which I just loved as soon as I saw it. So here is the sketch and below is my card.

All products are from the current spring mini catalogue, I'm loving this stamp set called tree trimmings and these papers SO BEAUTIFUL. I had a class at home yesterday and had customers asking if i can make up a stamping kit, so stay tuned as I will be making my first ever Kit with this stamp set and papers plus other stuff too. Thanks for looking.



OH I am so kicking myself I didn't buy this set now because your card just SOLD me on it! Wow it's absolutely gorgeous! You know I love me some gel pen stitching! I think I may need to CASE this one off you when I come over next, LOVE it Princess! xx
