Secret Crafter and Penny Black Saturday Challenges

I made this card following the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge sketch. On the Penny Black Saturday Challenge the theme is 'Get Well Soon'.
The paper is BG London sunset, the stamp is PB mouse bouquet :-) The text stamp is by hero arts.
My new spellbinder corners arrived today so I just had to use them on this sketch :-)
I sprayed brown cardstock with green and peach glimmer mists, I used this to cut the diagonal strip, the largest nestie square and the corners, I don't know if it shows up in the photo's but they are really shimmery and gorgeous :-) The bronze flower is papermania and I think it finishes the card quite nicely :-)
I sort of decorated the inside too, this is a 1st for me . I usually just stick a plain insert with 'happy birthday 'or whatever stamped on it !!
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments
Am off to bed, will link this tomorrow, my typing's gorn haywire and this has taken ages to type, am exhausted, it's midnight here !!
goodnight all x x

p.s I was going to enter this in the Basic Grey Challenge but I hadn't read the rules properly and it can't be linked with another challenge so off to do another one :-)

Sketch and Stash Challenge,,,, Cat Wedding !

This is my 2nd and final card as GD for this challenge. This fab sketch is by Becky. As my last card for this challenge was using my new stash I thought I really should use old and neglegted stash for this one. The cat stamp is from an Australian company called 'Stamp-It' and is one of my first ever buy's, I used to colour it with orange and brown embossing pens ughughugh!! I don't have a photo ( fortunately I can hear you all saying ha ha ) otherwise I would have given you all a good laugh :-)The angel hair I bought at the same time, and obviously I haven't used it cos I still have loads of it ! I do like it though. I layered that over silver stardream card and secured it at the back. I decided to make this card into a Wedding card for cat lovers ! Hence the girly cat with pearls and the tom cat with a dickie bow :-)
The flowers were made on my cricut, I really don't know what I would do without that gadget !! The brads are papermania.
I would just like to add that I have loved being a GD on this challenge, Becky is a lovely girl and has given me alot of encouragement, go and see the cards the DT have made they are just fabulous :-)
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so PLEASE leave me one :-)
