Sweet Pea Stampers - Swirls and Flourishes/FREEBIE BASH

Hiya folks!

I hope you all had a great weekend? I'm pleased to say the sun came out for us for a change - I even got rid of some weeds that were threatening to take over the garden!!

Time for a new challenge over at Sweet Pea Stampers, which this week is 'Swirls and Flourishes'. Here is what I made with this theme:

I have used papers from Papermania 'Henbury Lane' for this card, and I followed the sketch from Fussy and Fancy Friday for my layout. Just noticed I left off the sentiment, and put flowers there instead - bother, I knew things were going too well!!

The challenge at Fab 'n' Funky is to use your favourite colour - hard choice that, LOL. Of course it had to be purple! I coloured my image with the usual watercolour pencils, and have added liberal amounts of stickles!

My flowers are made using the usual punches with gems for the centres. The wee corner flourishes are vinyl stickers that I have had for ages but not used. I stuck them to some spare paper from the set I used and cut around them so I could use them with foam pads underneath.

There are two stamps as a prize this week - and don't forget to enter the 'August Entrants Candy' as well!!


As of September we will be changing our challenge day to a Friday, just to give all you weekend crafters more time to create! I hope you will be able to join us!
