I'm a bit excited ....


Imagine how excited I was when I saw the email from Sazzle and then when I saw it written in black & white that I had been randomly selected to be Featured Guest Designer on the Fancy & Fussy Friday Blog challenge. After all it was the first time I had entered a crafty challenge , it was just a whim  and I never win anything or get chosen for anything.

Then the panic set in what was I going to do ...  subject was Pink & Black... then I remembered the new Just Rite lacey stamps I had recently bought, so I set to and this is what I came up with.
I stamped the lace background stamp and medallion stamp onto blush coloured card with black versafine ink, then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I handcut the background out and used a die to cut out the medallion, they were then matted & layered onto 2 shades of pink, a silver & black mat

I started making various flowers but none of them were quite right and then I remembered the coredinations ebony & ivory pad I had in my stash. I diecut the bigger spellbinders bitty blossoms  and sanded them back to show the pink core. A couple of swirls, hatpins and a satin bow and I was done

a couple of extra photos of the flowers.
I must thank  Sheryl Cauble from Fussy & Fancy Friday Challenge for explaining what I  needed to do
Hope you give this challenge a go and hope you all enjoy it as much as I did, I look forward to seeing your entries... so Good Luck ... xxx Annie
