Sketch and Stash Challenge


Hi, I made this card for the sketch and stash challenge which is to use something new/ neglected on your card and use this sketch too. Well, the stamp is very neglected, I've had it for ages, it's practically antique and rarely used !! The sugar coated brads and pearl gems are new,(these don't show up on the photo very much, click on the photo for larger view to see more clearly) I bought them last week from Binky Crafts
I also used black/pink cordinations and my fave swirly cuttlebug folder. I put a miniscule text on, to fit the challenge :-) but really think it would be better leaving that out altogether !! I finished the card with a big black bow :-)
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your coments so please leave me one :-)
