Some EXCITING news!!!!

Hello!!! Well.. finally I can spill the beans.. I've been bursting with excitement for a few weeks now, sworn to secrecy.. but now... well now I can tell!!! YAY.

The gorgeous and VERY, VERY talented Shell, did I mention what an amazing Scrapper she is... no really.. she's AMAZING!!!! ... well.. Shell runs Challenge Heaven.. a fun Challenge community.. and yes, their is some amazingly talented ladies over there.. go see for yourself!!!.
Sooo.. .Shell emailed me a few weeks back asking me if I'd be interested in helping out with a 'Card' Challenge over at Challenge Heaven. After I picked my jaw up off the keyboard, had a little looksie over my shoulder just to make sure it was ME she was talking to and composed myself enough to actually type, I OF COURSE said YES!!!! And can I add that I am absolutely HONOURED to be doing this. Like I mentioned Shell is amazing and the group of ladies she has participating monthly with her challenges are so very talented.

So onto some eyecandy... This month Shell set the sketch.. and here's the card I came up with:-

And here is the BRILLIANT sketch:-

Isn't it a FUN sketch. LOVED playing with this one, and will definately be using it again.

I've used a colour combo of Pink Pirouette, Regal Rose, Melon Mambo and Soft Suede. Oh and I just have to throw in, that this could quite possibly become one of my VERY FAVE colour combos. On first glance Melon Mambo can be somewhat intimidating.. but teamed with Pink Pirouette and Regal Rose, becomes much softer and FABULOUS. The stamp set is Vintage Vogue and I've stamped the "F"riend stamp in Soft Suede then added a little flourish behind it in Pink Pirouette and a little flower stamped in Melon Mambo.

Be sure to visit Shell and have a go at some of the challenges she's got going over at Challenge Heaven and don't forget to visit the Challenge Heaven Blog too.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to pop back later for todays Inkspiration Challenge.
