Hello blogworld

I'm being sneaky here!  It's not my week over at Sweet Stampin, but I loved the challenge theme so much that I had to sneak onto Abi's team and join in.

So what is the theme then that got me so intrigued?  It's girly but NO pink!  How fab is that - almost every girly card I do has pink on it somewhere and I wondered if I could make a card without.  In the end I took a very easy route and made a White on White - and thoroughly enjoyed myself going overboard with glitter and flowers.

Our regular monthly sponsor, with the prize a £10 voucher for the on-line shop:

and this week's sponsor, a the prize being 5 digis of your choice:

Here is my creation - what do you think then?  Is it maybe a touch girly?

I used:

Pollycraft stamp (yes I have stamps as well as digis!  I got a bit obsessed at one point!): Sharing Sherbet - Seeds of Love.  Coloured with my Promarkers, then die-cut with and mounted onto nestie circles. The scalloped circle I embossed as well.
Cuttlebug embossing folders - Swiss Dots / Birds and Swirls, both edged with ink.
Martha Stewart punch for the border and butterflies.
Memory Box dies - Elegant Scrollwork (which I got myself as treat, not good UiU but I'm in dire need of a treat!)
Wild Orchid Crafts - roses, shame they are cream but I've run out of white.
Bow lace trim, from a seller on e-bay
Craftwork card blank

There are a few of us Team Fi girls going over to Team Abi this week - so why not pop over, have a peek at the fab inspiration and then join us!  Go on, you can make a girly card without pink ;-)

See you there!

Wow this is fab Sarah I quite like doing girlie cards without pink though I am a massive fan of pink! I have been so good lately using up stamps and papers I have esp the papers stamps are harder because of being limited via DT work but I'm working on it!
