Simply Stampin....Challenge 43


 This is a new Challenge for me its called 'Simply Stampin' and this week its a Sketch.
Stamping the En Francais background onto squares then took stamps from the Pocket Silhouettes set and stamped onto 4 of the square, the small butterfly from Flight of the Butterfly and the sentiment came from Whimsical Words set.  Punched out a couple of flowes and added pearls before popping them onto the card.  Across the bottom I used the Eyelet Border punch. I shall enjoy doing this challenge as it will mean my S.U. stamps will get used more!


Strictly was fabulous last night, it was at the NIA and not the NEC as I though the only complaint I have is that the seats so were hard! Next time I will take a cushion to sit on..lOl..lOl.

This is beautiful Anne - I love the little flowers against the En Francais script. I'm with you about hard seats - I think someone should invent a cushion which magically folds up small and pops in your handbag!

Sasha said...

Love your pretty stamped squares, Anne. Such a lovely layout and beautiful colours:)

This is such a lovely card Anne, fab colour scheme and a nice combination of stamps! I love background stamps stamped behind images, it adds that little extra something to kick the design up a notch. Love the punched borders at the bottom and the pop of bright colour your little flowers add!
Thanks so much for joining us at Simply Stampin' and I really hope we see you again very soon! Ruth x
