Sketch Layout Challenge #14

This blog post is coming a whole week late. I have had an absolutely horrid flu like I've never had before in my life. I'm on day 10 and only just starting to feel human again. But enough about me and onto the fun stuff. We had a more challenging layout matched with a colour scheme PLUS a wedding theme this time round. Challenge was set by me and in retrospect I might have been a little too demanding haha :P But those who did participate, didn't disappoint, as usual! 

This first dainty water colour floral card was created by Handmade by Julia Quinn. Julia used one of the new Stampin' Up! stamp sets to create this lovely look.

Our next two cards were designed by Mary Shapley. Isn't the lace tape lovely on the second one? It always adds such a lovely touch to a project.

My favourite creation this challenge was made by my sister Alicia. She used the spiral flowers die and crushed them a little so they didn't sit up so high. Such an awesome idea!

Our next card was made by Tristan of Tinstar Designs. Tristan tripled stamped her flowers to get the layered colours in her floral image. Looks fabulous doesn't it? 

Then there's me! As always I like to make an accurate interpretation of the sketch which is what I did with my first card. I kept it really simple while using the colours specified. 

And then had fun with my second design of course! The budget has been a bit tight lately so I haven't been able to buy many of the new products from the new Stampin' Up! catalogue. I have only been able to buy one stamp set so far - Hello Darling (pg 124).

I'm so glad I bought it though, how awesome is it? I love the floral images and the sequins!

If you'd like to join into our next challenge, we are already underway! Pop over and join this group!
