A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #43 "Gems"

This week over on A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge Blog we are challenged to use "gems" on our creations. I have combined this with the sketch that Tiets provided on her forum.....I can't read Dutch so I copied the sketch from Marlene's Blog.

For my card I have used a Miss Anya stamp, coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose
Walnut Stain
Black Soot
Worn Lipstick
I got the papers which are in a paper pad, from the NEC HobbyCraft show last week....just wish I could remember what shop they were from...LOL I have also added some ribbon that was wrapped around my Links of London jewellery box, a Craftwork Cards sentiment, some Prima Blossoms attached with a doodlebug sugar coated brad and a spacer, obviously...GEMS, and finally a heart pin theough the ribbon.

The papers is the pad are more like very heavy cardstock...so this card is pretty heavy. Below is also a picture of the decorated inside.
Thanks to the DT over on A Spoon Full of Sugar for the theme, and also to Tiets for providing such a fab sketch.

Hiya Birthday Girl!!!

This card is terrific, the colour combo really works for me.

I am coveting these anya stamps, but they are out of stock everywhere at the mo. You have decorated this card so beautifully with the flowers and ribbon, it all goes together so well.

Have a super duper day Caz and I hope you get all you were hoping for and a bit more besides. lol.

Hugs and happy birthday Jan xxx
