The quieter you become, the more you can hear.......

Hey there, my lovelies! Today there's a new challenge over at Scrap Creations and it's a nice, easy one this week - Anything Goes!!!!! There's a wonderful sponsor, Stampotique Originals who are offering the winner a $30 gift certificate and take it from me, you'll be spoilt for choice at this store!!! The DT were lucky enough to be able to pick a stamp and sentiment out to work with and believe me, I was there for ages, umm-ing and ahh-ing. I love what I finally picked out but I'll be back for more!!!!! Here's my card:

The papers, border sticker and rose sticker are all Echo Park 'For the Record', I've used a Tim Holtz script stamp and stamped the Stampotique sentiment directly onto the DP. The 'Jasmine' image I stamped onto some different DP, coloured some areas with promarkers, cut it out and then mounted it onto the card with foam pads. Lastly, I've added a big bow using ribbon plus some pearls from my stash.
I'm going to enter my card into the following challenges: CASE study - Challenge #30 and Make It Monday #28.
Hope you like my card, it's a bit different for me but cos I CASE'd another card, I think it took me outside my comfort zone a bit, which is a good idea now and again methinks!
How's the weather in your part of the world? We've had a lovely couple of days and I actually thought spring had arrived and then last night I went to take the dog out for his last 'wee' (LOL) and it was all foggy, was like stepping out into Victorian England!!?? And today it's cold again!! Mind you, I really shouldn't complain what with everything those poor people in Japan are going through, my heart really does go out to them. I mean, I know UK weather can't make it's mind up but at least we don't get hurricanes and earthquakes and all that sorta thing. Anyway, I must stop rambling on about the weather and get off to watch a bit of crafting on the telly. Bye for now.........xx
