Paris Socialite - Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend - MMSC#20, Stamp Something, Copic Colour #32 & Basic Grey #4

I can't believe it. I won last weeks challenge over at Dutch Dare and will be the proud owner of a stamp named "Happy Maya" , donated by La La Land Crafts. I've never won anything, so it made my day last Thursday when I clicked on the blog to see what the next challenge would be for the coming fortnight and there was my name. Thank you to the design team for choosing my card. Last Saturday I took some time out to enter into the Stampers United blog hop and I'm glad I did. some blogs I am a regular visitor to but there were others that until Saturday I had never come across. The level of peoples art work never ceases to amaze me or the amount of time the team must have taken ensuring the blog hop would happen. Back to this weeks creation, I have made a card using a fab stamp that my other half surprised me with after he took a trip to hobbycraft. It's called "Paris Socialite" by Stamps Happen. How lucky am I? He never comments on the 100s of pounds I spend on crafting goodies and gadgets, usually accompanies me to craft shows and even spends his money buying must have items. It probably has something to do with all the money he spends on his own hobbies! Anyway, whilst blog hopping I came across a new challenge blog "Priscillastyles: Midnight Madness" and it's their sketch I have used to create my design. I liked the sketch so much I will use it again and I am also going to enter the card into the Stamp Something Challenge for this week which is to use your favourite sketch. For the first time ever I am going to enter this weeks challenge over at the Copic Colour Challenge blog. The colour combination is V06, B23 & BG23. The main colour used on my card is V06, not a colour I would normally choose so quite a challenge. I used BG23 on the ribbon. I have also entered this into the Basic Grey Challenge this week as I have included Embossing on my card. I am pleased with the effect and will definitely use the stamp again with a completely different colour scheme. To make the card I have used: Card/Paper - Linen card stock 15x16cm, Purple Bazzil, Basic Grey Euphoria Stamp - Paris Socialite, Stamps Happen Medium - Copics, V06, V04, V000, 100, E00, E21, E51, R00, C3, C5 Distress Ink, Dusty Concord for the background and the edge of the BG papers Cosmic Shimmer Mica Pewter Grey, Stickles for the bling, White Gelly Roll Pen and Silver Pen Embossing/Dies - Cuttle Bug Textile folder, Spellbinder Oval Nestabilities Embellishments - Silver Buckle coloured with Stickles, Square Gems, White ribbon coloured and doodled on. I think that's it. Thanks for taking the time to look at my blog, it is appreciated. Jenny
