St Lukes charity card challenge....

Another month and another challenge over at St Lukes Charity Card challenge
Our new challenge for this month is a Card Buffet where you have a list of items that can be used on your card and you are asked to use only a certain number of them.  The menu was:
Patterned paper, Ribbon, Gems, Pearls, Charms, Flowers, Punches, buttons, Embossing and String.... you are asked to use only 4 of  items on your card but you are allowed to have a focal image and sentiment.
My 4 items that I have chosen to use are:  Textured Core-dinations whitewash paper which I have sanded the bottom half and embossed the top using an embossing folder. Ribbon and pearls.
The focal image is one of Joanna sheens stamps this one is the 'Wild rose'. I have stamped onto watercolour paper and used Distress Inks to colour.
Please pop across to the St Lukes Blog and see prize you could win this month for entering a card, if you would also like to donate your card then the address is also on the St Lukes Blog....

thanks

Anne

This is gorgeous hun. I am a bit sentimental about wild roses, they were my godmother's favourite flower. Beautiful soft feel and lovely delicate colours. Hugs Sxx
