A Challenge...

The other day I challenged myself to use 2 things - the In Colour Poppy Parade, which is my most neglected In Colour and the Every Moment stamp set, which I really like, but have hardly touched. This card was the result.... I used a Sketch Challenge from somewhere too.
The colours are Cherry Cobbler, Poppy Parade, Always Artichoke and So Saffron...way out of my comfort zone! The little border and sentiment are from Because I Care (Level 1 Hostess set). I masked the flowers, stamped in Black Stazon and water coloured with ink pads and a Blender pen.
We're off to my Brother-in-Law's wedding this weekend. They live in Gymea Bay, so we are staying there overnight, and then it's my birthday on Sunday, so it should be a fun weekend!


  1. Happy Birthday Mad has her birthday on I'd love to be turning 10 again LOL.....enjoy Gymea Bay!!

  2. Beautiful card Marelle! The wedding will be fun and what a way to top of the weekend with your birthday! I hope 'little shrek' spoils you rotton! (waving at you Dave!)


  3. Happy birthday for Sunday Marelle. Enjoy the stay on the south side; hope the wedding goes well - long may they love. Luv KimT

    This card looks great - the colours work so well and the bow is gorgeous. Happy Birthday too.

    Oh and the Sketch was a Utah Diva's International Sketch ;)
