Sweet Pea Stampers - Charmed

Hiya folks!

Well, some of us in the UK might have the sun, but we here in NE Scotland have the rain, wind and cold!! Time to get the winter coat out me thinks!! Bbrrrrrrr.

It's also time for a new challenge at Sweet Pea Stampers, and this week we are 'Charmed I'm Sure'. That's it, simple! We want to see some charms.

I have used Ching Chou-Kuik's 'Lotus Trio' from Sweet Pea Stamps for my card today, coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, and covered the moon in stickles! My layout follows the sketch from Sunday Sketch and Stamp:

My papers are from The Creative Cottage - Sunny Days and Summer Mornings. Both kits are digital. My ribbon is from my stash, as are the silvery brad tops. These are not actual brads, but just sticky metal dots that look like brads - cool huh?

My charms are not real charms either! These used to be part of a pair of ear-rings that I dismantled. They have been looped through the ribbon at the top. I am entering this in the challenge at Magical Monday, which is 'Under the Sea'.

Right then folks - lets see those charms. Head over to Sweet Pea Stampers for some more inspiration, and to check out the yummy prize up for grabs this fortnight. See you there!

Beautiful card Teri. The papers work perfectly with the image. I was thinking as I was looking at your card "wouldn't the charms make great earrings" and it turns out they did!. It's very grey in Sheffield today (Monday) so I'm looking at all the colourful cards on blogs to cheer myself up. :-) xx
