Simply Stampin' Challenge week 4

What a beautiful week it has been for the school holidays!!! Better weather than we usually have in July!!  I'm afraid my blog has suffered as a result, its been lovely spending time outside - we took a picnic to the park on Wednesday in April????

There have been some fabulous Easter projects this week at Simply Stampin' Challenge,  so thank you to everyone who joined us again this week.  Our new challenge is a sketch this week, you can use the sketch in any way you wish as long as we can still see the original sketch.

I have used the Stampin' Up! Colour Coach for my inspiration for this card, it is certainly a combination I wouldn't have chosen but I  do like it.  The colours are River Rock, Melon Mambo and Elegant Eggplant.

I have used the Big Shot with the gorgeous Square Lattice embossing forlder to add some texture to the Melon Mambo layer, then I decided to use a stamp set I haven't used for a while - Vintage Vogue, this is a lovely set perfect for pretty summery cards!   The flowers have been stamped using the "rock and roll" technique and cut out, with a basic rhinestone for a little bling!!  I have stamped my greeting in River Rock ink, it is from the Just Believe stamp set.

If you would like to see the beautiful projects the other Design team members have created this week

Don't for get this is the final week to enter our challenge to be in with a chance of winning some fabulous Stampin' Up! products, one lucky winner will be chosen at random at the end of this weeks challenge. There will aslo be a Top 3 choosen and a banner to display on your blog.
