A new Challenge Blog

Crafter's Companions have set up a new monthly Blog Challenge.
For the first week they have decided upon a sketch. The only stipulation being that the image should be available on the Crafter's Companion website. As they sell loads of different images in various forms, this doesn't present too much of a problem. This morning I bought some more Penny Black clear stamps and they have a fabulous offer of any 2 sets for £20. How cool is that!!!
This card uses the PB stamp Garden Gossip, don't you just love it!
The paper is a digi download but sadly I can't remember where is was from. The white panel has been overstamped with SU's Vintage wheel, and the panel with the horizontal lines with random dots, both using gold ink.
The flower is made from Nellie Snellen's punch/emboss duo and the leaves are made with an XCut cut/emboss punch.
I just had to pop a little something in the top right hand corner and the Cuttlebug corner won the day.
Looking at it now, I think a little stitching wouldn't have gone amiss, maybe next time!

  7. Hi Chrissie, I like the card just as it is (without the stitching) but that probably for me is because it's just too much effort to get the sewing machine out and then put it away again.

  8. Lovely card, love the colour and PB are my favourites!
    Love the flower and leaves

  9. Very sweet card Chrissie, just love the colour and the flower is so pretty! Kim

  10. Chrissie - this is gorgeous - love the soft greens and a lovely layout!! Juliexx

  11. Oh how lovely is this card. do like the soft green colours you have used.. and this so cute image from PB, so , so , sweet!

  12. Your cards are always beautiful Chrissie :)
    Forgot to say about the Big Shot - although that and the Cuttlebug do the same job, the reason I went for the Big Shot was it just looks more sturdy to me though the Cuttlebug is more compact. Despite the BS looking more sturdy it is light - unlike the old red Sizzix! It's difficult to really compare them though unless you've used both :)
