You're Special To Me - Double Challenge

I found another new blog challenge this week over at Annabelle Stamps - and discovered that as well as their weekly challenges, they do a monthly sketch challenge, and its possible to combine the two.  I liked the idea of this weeks challenge, as it was to "say it with emboss resist" and I haven't used my embossing powders in an age.  I used one of the gorgeous sentiments from Stempelglede and embossed it with clear matt powder.  As I was also going to use the monthly sketch from the same blog as the basis for the card, I stamped it into the centre of a nestie circle, leaving the nestie in place, and then used two shades of distress inks (bundled sage and crushed olive) to blend a background whilst maintaining a white border.  I mounted onto another nestie, some gorgeous glittered paper from the laundry line stack from My Minds Eye and added a flower and a few gems to match the shape of the sketch. 

Its turned out to be my favourite card of the year so far.......

The challenges are - Annabelle Stamps January Sketch Challenge and Annabelle Stamps Say It With Emboss Resist


  1. What a gorgeous card! LOVE your colour combo and I'm loving your embossed resist circle, the sentiment is lovely!
