Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe Challenge #21

Gosh, I've been such a bad blogger of late. I just don't know where the time goes. Fortunately it's C4E time again & Michele has come up with another great sketch & recipe. This week we want you to:-
1. use the sketch
2.use the colours black & pink
3. include staples in your creation

I have a confession to make. I bought this Leanne Ellis, Poise stamp, from Sugar Nellie, when it first came out & this is the first time I have actually used it. (Smacks back of hand). She is actually a dream to colour with my Distress Inks. I think I will be using her a lot more.

There is not much to else to tell you about this card. I used some old monochrome Anna Griffin papers & the flowers & brad are from a Crafty Feeling kit. I also added black sequins to the centre of the small flowers, for a little added shine, but they don't show up so well in the photo.

It's time to pop on over to the Crafts 4 Eternity blog now to see the gorgeous work of my extremely talented DT colleagues. I think we all really liked this challenge, they have excelled themselves!
It is my Mum's birthday next weekend & I made this card for her. So I would also like to enter this into this week's challenge at Quixotic Paperie where the challenge is to make 'Something for Mum'
Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
Big Hugs,
Andie xx
