New Challenge Blog - Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog

The ribbon has been cut on a new challenge blog - Sketch and Stash Challenge Blog and this is definitely a challenge blog for us all because it requires you to use new or never used stash. Now I know if you are anything like me, you will have a stash spending bug that can't be controlled so now you definitely have the opportunity to show off your new purchases (or those that have been lurking in the cupboard unopened) ! There will be a sketch to follow every 2 weeks.

This is the card I have made for this challenge

I have used some pink and brown Bazzill card.

The patterned papers are BasicGrey Sugared which I adore.

The new items on my card are the Magnolia stamps, the love letter, Tilda with the envelope and the sentiment. The love letter has been distressed with distress inks and I then cut it out on my new oval nesties which my DH very kindly gave me for Christmas. Tilda has been coloured with ProMarkers.

The flowers and heart brad are from my stash and the charm and chain are new from e-bay.

I also used a heart punch which is my never used item on the brown flowered paper but you can't see it very well.

Wishing everyone at Sketch and Stash the best of luck in your new venture and I hope you become very popular with us crafters.
