Truly Scrumptious Challenge #19 & Copic Colour Challenge #37!

*********Scroll down for my Copic Colour Challenge card!*********

Hi again! It's my fortnightly double challenge post! The first one is this fortnights Truly Scrumptious sketch with the added challenge of a Recipe - 3 flowers, 3 brads & 3 pearls/gems. It's such a great sketch to use too as it can be flipped all different ways. Here's my card using this adorable Lili of the Valley stamp (which I pre-ordered months ago because I just had to have it and have only just got around to using!) The little Poinsettias were made using the EK Success Daisy punch, one medium in green, 2 medium in red and one small in white then a little pearl brad to hold them all together. There's a fabby prize this week and the DT cards are all stunning so make sure you pop over and join us! I'm also going to enter this into this weeks Winter Wonderland challenge which is an Open Theme - easy enough!

Poinsettias - made with the EK Success medium & small 'Daisy' punches
Gems & pearl brads - stash
Sentiment - made on the PC


And onto my Copic Colour Challenge card! There's such a pretty colour selection this week and I actually had all the required Copics! So I had to go for a nice, delicate stamp. I'm not sure of the name of this one, my PB teamie Nat stamped it out for me. I've shown a picture of it closed to so you can see the colour behind the border punch, and hopefully in the other picture you can see the where I've added some Sakura Stardust to the water. I'm also used this weeks Sketch Saturday sketch, although I've moved the sentiment about!
Well done if you've reached the end of this post!! I hope you like them and can join in the challenges!
