Stamp Something ,,,,,,, Pink

Hope you are all well and looking forward to the weekend :-) I am sure there will be lots of parties this weekend ,,,all scary and spooky ,,, woohoo . Unfortunately we don't really celebrate Halloween in Malta ,,, but Amy has managed to find a party to go to and is now wanting me to make her a costume !!! I did suggest wearing orange and spraying her hair green ,,, go as the cute HM carrot lol :-),, she was not impressed ,,, !!! I thought it was a brilliant idea ,,, lol

Anyway ,,,we are at the end of October so this is the last opportunity to spread the word on Breast Cancer Awareness month ,, so on the Stamp Something Challenge we would like to see

Stamp Something ,,,, PINK,,

(you MUST use stamps for this challenge no digi's allowed !! :-) )

We are sponsored by the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp so a fab spree for one lucky entrant




For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge , perfect sketch for larger stamps !! I used my old but cute Penny Black Uplifting Occasion stamp ,,, perfect for the theme I thought :-) I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. I then added star Dust sickles here and there ,, I wish they would make this in larger bottles ,, I go through loads of them lol !! The papers are Basic Grey from the Green at Heart paper pad. I used a EK Success border punch and a Martha Stewart one too, as well as 2 Martha Stewart Butterfly punches. The sentiment is from a Simon says Stamp Exclusives set, I added a few gems, a silk ribbon and a ribbon slider in there too.



Challenges:

Sketch Saturday,,, fab sketch
Oldie But Goodie ,,,,, Add a Butterfly + old stamp
Totally Gorjuss ,,,,, Sparkle


Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration ,, so hop on over to the Stamp Something Challenge to see them :-)
