2sketches4you challenge

So sorry about not uploading any cards yesterday folks, but would you believe that around 1pm I suddenly got this very nauseous feeling which lasted the rest of the day... along side it came the need to sleep almost the full day... and a really sore neck... (perhaps from all the sleeping). Then off to bed I went last night & slept right through till this morning.
Thankfully today I only have the feeling of being a bit drained & a sore neck.. there is the odd nauseous feeling comes over me but it quickly disappears.... Guess who obviously caught a nasty 24 hour bug...
Alas however, I have managed to at least make 1 challenge card so far... this one here is for the 2sketches4you challenge where this weeks sketch is by the fabulous Laura.
Here I used a brown base card, in the centre of which there is a layer of gold card. For the image layer I used ColorBox inks to stamp onto some handmade card & then used a Koi water brush to pull the colour onto the leaves. Then the image was re-stamped onto a piece of burgundy handmade paper, the flower heads were then cut out & mounted onto the card using silicone. Some burgundy ribbon around the bottom & attached at the back, all of which was then mounted onto the gold card. To finish off I used some card candy in the top corners & flower centre.
Stamped image is by Penny Black
Card candy from Craftwork Cards
Everything else from my stash.
Fingers crossed I'll make it back again later with another little something.
Happy crafting
