Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge - 16 March 2012

It is also time for another challenge over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog.  This time the topic is "luck of the Irish". 
For my card I have used the Ching Chou-Kuik Sweet Pea Stamp called Ocean Fantasy.  She is certainly a beauty and so is the cat!!  I have coloured the image with Promarkers, die-cut and inked around the edges with a chalk ink pad.  The papers are all 6x6 papers I had loose.  One night last week I decided to put them all into colour families and I've already used about 10 sheets up by doing this.  It saves looking through a pile that is about 4 inches high!!  The papers I have distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.  One of the papers was double-sided so I scored the corner, folder over and in with a brad.  The card has been finished off with some lace, pearls, buttons, peel-off sentiment, brads and some green die-cut butterflies (these were cut from a scrap of green mirri card and after 20 photos they still look black but they are green).

Over at the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge we unfortunately have had to say good-bye to some Design Team (DT) members recently.  We therefore are having a Design Team call.  Do you love Sweet Pea Stamps just like the rest of the DT?  Are you able to make a card/creation every two weeks?  If the answer is "yes" please make a card/project and enter this fortnights' challenge and put DT after your name.
