Truly Scrumptious Challenge 3

This weeks challenge has been set by our Design Team member, Beth. Beth has put together a fab sketch for you to use and we also want to see something shiny on your cards; maybe some miri card or a charm - anything that would attract a magpie's eye!! And just to clarify, to be eligible for this weeks prize you must follow the sketch AND include the extra element.

Our sponsor this week is Pink Gem Designs. Janet has designed a range of super cute images - pop across to her blog and take a look. She has kindly given us one of her gorgeous new "Fairy Sprinkles " stamps to give away as this weeks prize:




Oh boy - did I have trouble with my "shiny stuff". Mirri card doesn't photograph well so I thought I won't go there. The bronze flowered paper behing the image and the ribbon is really shiny but when I came to photograph it - no shine showed. Back to the drawing board - as a last resort I used a flower gem in the centers of the flowers including the one Alva is holding. The image is Magnolias Alva with a flower and is coloured with distress inks. The papers are out of my scrap box. The sentiment is Inkadinkdo and the flourish stamp Magnolia. I'm not really happy with this one, although it does look better IRL. The camera seems to have picked up the orange colour leaving the whole looking very unbalanced.

So cute Heather! I just love the earthy colours on this card.
Your latest cards seem even more fabulous than usual (is that possible?) and I just adored everything about your birthday card for Georgia.
I so enjoy my visits to your blog, my friend!
