THE MYSTERY LETTER FOR MY BLOG IS P.


Here is my card. The DT are show casing Stampabilities stamps this week (House Mouse, Happy Hoppers, Gruffies), but as we realise some of you may not have these stamps we have a recipe challenge for you of 3 different types of embellishments, 2 papers and 1 image. If you have a Stampability stamp we'd love to see it on your creation! I have also managed to make this card to fit two other challenges, Basic Grey's sketch by Martine and the Colour Create Challenge of red, white, pink and chocolate. My papers are both from the Basic Grey Indian Summer collection and I've distressed them with vintage photo distress ink and stickles.


I have coloured my House Mouse "geronimo" image with distress inks and distressed the edge of the image with vintage photo distress ink and stickles also.

I added some blossoms to match the cherry blossoms on the image. They were white but I inked the edges with tattered rose and sprayed them with glimmer mist. My flowers are my first type of embellishment.

I added some swirls of pearlescent card using my new punch - can you tell I'm loving this punch LOL??? It is everywhere this week!! and I added some gorgeous lace from my stash as my second type of embellishment and the pearls in the top right corner are my third type!

Hope you like it and thanks for stopping by!! Have fun and good luck!


Next head over to Jo to see what fabulous inspiration she has for you! x
