Charisma Cardz White on White :-) last GD card ,,,

I have had a fabulous month on the Charisma Cardz Challenge and their GD :-) The girls are a lovely bunch to work with ,, thank you for making me feel so welcome :-)

This week Allison has set the theme and it is a lovely one ,,


I followed the lovely sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge :-)

I decided to ink up my old Penny Black wedding cake stamp ,,I thought it was discontinued but fornd it on the Penny Black site I colourd it a little bit with pink, green and light grey for shading ,, the 'ribbons' on the cake were slightly tinted with off white :-)
I made the background paper by embossing it then painstakingly applying glue to all the raised areas and sprinkling with glitter ,,, it does look ever so sparkly in real life :-) The ribbon is from Wild Orchid Crafts and the flowers are prima :-) I would have liked to have used white roses but I only have ivory ones ,,, and they just didn't look right ! :-) the sentiment is from a Simon Says Stamp exclusives set ,,,I use these sentiments all the time ! :-) I used my SU oval punches too ,, love them ! :-) I finished off with a few pearls and a charm :-)

I have just bought a fabulous bow easy from Sally who is on the DT,, it is fantastic :-) The bow I made on here didn't use it ,,, but I am going to remove that one now and make another ,,, will be back soon with a new piccy so you can see the before and after !!!! :-)

here's the 'after' better eh !! :-) You will be seeing bows on everything now ,,, I even asked Amy if she wanted me to make her one for her hair clip,,, I thought she would have looked pretty ,,, she just laughed at me !!!! LOL :-)

I am also entering this into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge whose theme is Something Sweet :-)

I have a blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp at the top of my blog if you would like to take a peek :-)
