My Paper World Sketch Challenge #6

Nicola set a challenge for this fortnight to make cards from the sketch pictured. I need to make quite a few cards this month so am starting off with the one shown here. I used Stampin' Up! Certainly Celery, Pale Plum and Whisper White cardstock, and a stamped background provided in a RAK (thank you!) I chose the sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s 'Blooming with Happiness' set, stamping in black Stazon and sponging around it with Lavender Lace ink. The little jewels are from Heidi Swapp and the grosgrain ribbon from Stampin' Up! I paper pierced the edges of the green cardstock too.
If you are a cardmaker and look at Nicola's cards, then also follow the links she has in her posts to the other people's blogs who have made gorgeous cards using her sketch, I promise you will be inspired.
I plan to make a few more cards with this sketch this week, maybe even becoming a BIT more adventurous with how I do it.

Gorgeous card, Susan. I love those two colours together. I have two chalk inks Eggplant & Tea Leaves & they are a close match to these Stampin' up ones.
Its looking like my internet probs will be coming to an end soon. They have been doing massive server updates & the bad weather has slowed them down causing havoc.
My emails are still affected so I can't check them from work. I am worn out & looking forward to the weekend. I have so much craft stuff that I have to finish they are becoming a chore instead of a pleasure. I do have some fun bits lined up for me once the commissions are done.
