Simon Says ,,,,,,, Pinkor Blue with Green and Brown

It seems that the tent card challenge didn't appeal to so many of you but the entries we did have were all beautiful and they gave me some lovely ideas for future projects :-) So thank you to everyone :-)

This weeek on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge we have a nice easy one for you :-)

Use pink or blue WITH green and brown!

The Design Team is showcasing PENNY BLACK stamps this week - you don't have to use them in your creation, but if you have them, why not ink them up?? Simon Says Stamp Superstore has a HUGE selection of Penny Black stamps - there is SOMETHING for everyone!!!! Head on over there and check it out!!!!!

Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $25 spree to her fabulous Simon Says Stamp Superstore :-)

This week we also have a super talented Guest Designer joining us :-)MARCEA has agreed to join us for a whole month ! :-) Welcome aboard Marcea x

I made my card following Jo's fabulous sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge
I used my lovely Penny Black 'Vanilla' stamp that I was lucky enough to win in a little competition on the Simon Says Stamp Blog a while ago :-) I coloured her with copics and used a copic green glitter pen to add dots around the hem and sleeve. The papers are lovely new BG Green at Heart papers. The flowers are Prima which have been sprayed with Pearl Glimmer mist and stikled with star dust for extra sparkle :-) I used a Martha Stewart border punch and butterfly punch, the 'hi'in the bottom left corner are stickers in the BG Green at Heart paper kit (I bought the 12 x 12 collection pack).

I am also entering this into the following challenges :-

Penny Black Challenge ,,,, Lots of Dots (hem and sleeve of dress and polka dot ribbon)

Creative Card Crew ,,,,,,, Pink and Green

Totally Gorgeous ,,,,,, Bling it on ( she has lots of jewellery and I added gems to the flower centers,,, stickled EVERYTHING :-))

thanks for your comments I really do appreciate them :-) xx

Hi Lorraine,
I don't think the tent challenge didn't appeal so much as the lovely weather was keeping people outdoors so less time to play with glue and paper.
Wish I could join in all the fabby challenges I see but time restrictions dictate otherwise and I have to pick'n'choose. Presumably most people are in the same boat and I anticipate things may get a bit quieter over the summer hols when we will all be forced to spend time with kids and hubbies etc - doing family stuff ... such torture LOL!
