Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #13

This week I have got in a little earlier with the Inkspriration Sketch Challenge run by Makeesha Byl I really enjoyed the Sketch Challenge as I find it much easier to complete, & I will probably make more cards to this sketch in the future.
I spent all Sunday Stamping & managed to complete some tasks on my to do list the first was to create some sample wedding invitations for my nieces friend, I managed to make 5 in all (I will post them after I have shown the girls). Designed a gift box & six cards using the Fifth Ave Floral, this will be a workshop once I have a completion date for my new craft room.

My first card for Makeesha's Challenge is using Fifth Ave Floral.

Card Recipe:
Stamp Set; Fifth Ave Floral
Ink; Kiwi Kiss & Basic Black
Cardstock; Basic Black, Whisper White & Kraft
Designer Paper: Urban Oasis
Accessories: 1 3/8 Punch & Kiwi Kiss Corduroy Button

Happy Stamping

Lace Edge Card

Hi Everyone,

I love this card & no its not an original design I got the Idea for the lace edge insert from an Australian Blog but the picture I saved does not have a watermark & they used Rose Red & the Dreams De Jour Stamp set so if anyone happens to know who the creator was let me know so I can give credit
Card Recipe:

Stamp Set: Echoes of Kindness
Cardstock: Elegant Eggplant , Pale Plum & Whisper White
