Great Friend goes for a Walk in the Park

Janet's corrosive challenge this week is a sketch challenge & they certainly make creating a card easier. One of my stampin' team Lisa B AKA daffyscrapper had swapped with me recently & I loved how she made her own paper using the stamps in Great Friend so she was my inspiration. Her paper sample can be seen HERE - she has been busy with it I see, making invites too! I took the concept & colours from the divine piece of Walk in the Park DSP. Sponged the edges with So Saffron ink plus cut out the butterfly & popped him up on dimensionals plus added a few half pearls - pretty. Dare I say it - I liked working with Cameo Coral too.

Stamp set: Great Friend
Ink: Cameo Coral, Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Kiwi Kiss
Paper: Baja Breeze, Basic Gray, Confetti White, Walk in the Park DSP
Other: Scallop oval punch (so in love with this), large oval punch, half cream pearls (Pretties kit), mini glue dots, dimensionals, sponge

Here's Janet's sketch for inspiration:

Hope you can join us this week. I only have 2 more weeks to go on the Design Team but I've really enjoyed it & will be an active participant in the future and it's been really great seeing all the kiwis entering (& occasionally winning).

I'll have to have a wee prize my LAST week so until then you'll have to rely on the random integer! GOOD LUCK.
