First Challenge of the Month at JUGS

The first challenge of the month over at JUGS
is this fabulous sketch from Sharyn
I love sketch challenges and as Sharyn said - half the work is done for you.
Now we just need to make a card with our take on it.
I must admit the first card I started just wasn't right so
landed in the bin lol
Now this card I was really happy with because I went
to my favourite Stampin' Up set - Vintage Vogue
and what better colours to use but SU Rich Razzleberry for the
flowers and Memento Pistachio.
I started with the basic white card stock
and after inking and masking the strips of paper
with another stamp from
Vintage Vogue I adhered to the base.
Added a strip of DP from Creative Memories and punched
the bottom part with a MS Punch.
The Spellbinders Lacy Circle was cut from a scrap piece of
scrapbooking paper then followed by the white from Spellbinders Standard Circles
 inked with the flower. I inked several more flowers and fuzzy cut
curled and popped them  to add to the top and also the side as per sketch.
Finished off with tiny rhinestones in the circle and 2 larger ones on the
edge of the strip. Also pearls from Kaisercraft to 2 flowers
and a mauve Sparklet on the other flower.
Hope you liked my interpretation of this great sketch.

I am also entering this card in the Just for Fun Challenge HERE
 We are required to use our favourite colour.
Those that know me are well aware that mine is PURPLE

Maybe it is because my favourite flower is a thistle.
 I know it is a weed but being a Scot you have to love them.

I would also like to be considered for GDT.
