Icy Wednesday

There's a brilliant sketch from Katharina on the High Hopes Challenge blog and also they calling for Guest designers for 3 months with their choice of some stamps. Not sure this card is good enough but I didn't want to over power it with big flowers. I was trying to use the colour combo on Colour Create challenge of Aqua and Peach but to be honest I haven't got any Peach and the closest was this pink but I think it works quite well. Yes the aqua piece is a bit of those Daisy Bucket ones that I said was all gone but this piece was hiding in between some other papers, the flowery paper is Chatterbox and although the challenge option was to make your own flowers I've used these Prima ones.

When I saw the sketch on 2 sketches4you, it made me think of a tall card and I realised I haven't used this elegant lady for a while and I just love paper piecing her and BG works so well for this.


They are also offering some Blog Candy for some Eye Candy, basically they're asking for a Pic of the one you love on your blog. Not sure you would call my hubby Eye Candy but he is mine.
