A little controversial!

Hi there!

It's Wednesday....I've been to work...to Brownies and to Guides.....I then came home and got to play along with one of my favourite challenge blogs! I love Sweet Sketch Wednesdays....Arlana creates amazing sketches for us to follow and the DT are all so lovely...not only creating gorgeous cards, but also leaving fab comments. Tonight when I popped over to see this week's sketch I was delighted to see that I'd won their Grand Prize with my card last week......how exciting! Thank you ladies....I'm dead chuffed!

I've been sent some skin tone Promarkers by my fab Sweet Stampin team leader Abi.....and some bleedproof paper to stamp on! Aren't I lucky?? Thanks again Abi.....I've already started practising! Here is my card for this week's challenge at SSW:


Now I know I always say this....but this sketch is fab! I really enjoyed creating this card. The wedding theme comes from this week's challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers....and as you can see I've decided to be a bit daring with my wedding card. I wanted a more contemporary feel for this card and so opted for non-traditional colours and black lace! I wasn't sure as I was putting the card together whether it was going to work, but looking at it now I'm quite happy with it. I think the grey ribbon and button really pulls everything together.

I'm also entering this card in the Bingo challenge over at Simon Says Stamp this week....you can't beat a bit of Bingo! I've opted for buttons, lace and sentiment.

Pop over to all three blogs to see some gorgeous cards....great inspiration!

Right, I'm off to bed....I'm in serious need of some beauty sleep! Thanks for popping by today, its lovely to read your comments.
