SC 03312

Here is my card for the last week of my guest designer role on Sunny Challenges and Creations. We have a sketch this week and had to use distressing somewhere on the card.

As you can see, my card is not greatly distressed but I have done the edges after stitching the paper and then sponged around the outside. I also consider the cardstock I used for the flower to be well distressed LOL!

I made the flower using Joanne Leddy's way - they always turn out beautifully. Joanne does the most gorgeous work with Stampin' Up! products - so different and interesting! I used various SU punches and an SU pearl in the centre and the whole flower has been sprayed with shimmer spray.

All supplies for this card are from Stampin' Up! including the pearls but they have been coloured with a Copic Marker.

Many thanks to the girls who own the Sunny Challenges and Creations blog for asking me to be guest designer for the month -indeed an honour and I always enjoy a challenge!

This is such a beautiful card, Jean. I was sure I'd commented on it earlier, but it appears not! If you'd like to visit my blog, you'll find I have an award for you :).
