Another Challenge Entry

This is the second card I made for Makeesha Byl's Challenge.

This is actually the 2nd version my, I tried to follow the layout of the picture so I had half a flower stamped in white on the side of the card but only as a 10yr old can say "mum what's that there for it looks silly!" so after taking her advice I removed it but I am still not 100% sure

Stamp set; Eastern Blooms & Basic Phrases

Cardstock; Riding hood red. Kraft, Basic black & Whisper White

Ink; basic Black, Sahara sand, Riding Hood Red

Accessories; Scallop edge punch, word window punch, build a brad, white gel pen, mat pack & black grosgrain ribbon

Inspiration Challenge #13

After spending 6 days on the NSW South Coast in miserable weather (with no stamping supplies) I am glad to be back, don't get me wrong we had a great time & Robert even managed to come away as well. We spent time sightseeing, visiting Magic Mountain, the kids even had a five minute swim at the beach the day we arrived & then they spent the other time swimming in the heated pool as Robert or I sat watching dressed in full winter garb. Another day was spent Whale Watching (but that's a whole other story lets just say 70% of the boat was sick & we had to head back early. NEVER NEVER again!!!!!!!!)

So now we are home & rejuvenated I am ready to do some creating & a good place to start was Makeesha Byl's Inspiration Challenge

this was the picture which we had to draw inspiration from

& this is my creation Card Recipe:
Stamp Set; Eastern Blooms & Short & Sweet
Cardstock; Kraft, Basic Black & Whisper White
Ink; Real Red
Acessories; Real Red grossgrain ribbon, mat pack, small & large oval punch & scallop oval punch
I will be back tomorrow to post another card for the challenge that I am working on.
