Good evening, everyone!

Hope you've all had a good weekend? ....shame that Monday is only a few hours away!! LOL!

I had a spare hour earlier this evening, and wanted to make a card for the Roses on Paper challenge which ends today. This week's challenge #13 is a colour challenge : Pink, Yellow & Green. My brand new The Greeting Farm Wild Sprouts stamps arrived on Thursday, but as I've been unwell I haven't had chance to play with them...until today!!

I used this week's sketch #56 over at Friday Sketchers for this card. And yes, I ran the white oval piece of card through the Swiss Dots Cuttlebug embossing folder and then painstakingly coloured in the dots.!! The piece you see above was my 3rd attempt, as the pattern I tried on the 1st oval didn't work, and then I had a little colouring accident with the 2nd! I doodled on the punched flowers to make them match the flower in Dahlia's hair. I wanted to use Card Candy for the centre of the flowers, but despite owning 6 different packs of the stuff, I couldn't find any the exact colour match. So I used white ones and coloured them myself. I used my MS scallop dot border punch on the vertical strip of green pattern paper, but then stuck pearls in the larger holes - my 4mm ones dropped in perfectly!

Hope you likey?

Have a great evening, one and all!

Hugs, Sem x
