I thought that I would try a Sketch Challenge with Inspired by Stamping .  I am in the throws of making 3 sets of 5 coordinating cards which are come in boxes that coordinate with the cards.

I have used kaisercraft paper 'On this day' for 2 of the sets so far. I was inspired by sketch 1 to make this card for one of the sets.  I have used a sentiment stamps from one of Joanna's sets. I just love her stamps are they are a beautiful high quality clear stamp and they have loads of swirls on them. The sticky on them is awesome.  The sentiment and the flourish in the circle are in gold heat embossed to add a richness to the card. I used Marianne  and a Memory Box dies and a MFT doily die.
The flowers are from Wild orchid flowers

Please go and have  a look at Joanna's stamps as it is worth a visit and the quality of the stamps surpass any others.
I also like the fact that this is a home grown company. (Australia).

Please go and look at the other creations from others folllowers of Joanna.

Many thanks for viewing my blog.
