An Irresistible Challenge

Hi everyone,

I had time to do a bit of surfing over the past couple of days and came across some new, interesting and inspiring blogs. One of the blogs is Flourishes Newsletter which has a Tuesday Challenge that I just couldn't resist. It was actually a four-card challenge, something I had never seen before. You do as many of the cards as you wanted.

My cards didn't turn out as close to the sketch as I would have liked because I don't have the really large circle (it's in the mail) so I supplemented the look with some ribbon. Everything in the cards, except the white ribbon (Michael's) is Stampin' Up. This sketch just cried out for more of the Cottage Wall designer paper so I indulged. I just love the Rich Razzleberry In Colour. I also used one of my very favourite stamp sets, Stampin' Up's Pocket Silhouettes. Of course, what's a card without a bit of Diamond Stickles to add just a titch of sparkle.

I knew once I started with challenges I would just love them! I hope you enjoy these cards and come back to SPI again soon.
