The Challenge #23 {Beautiful}

Sketch Dimensions
(this is only a suggestion)
Card Base: 4.25 x 5.5"
SideStrip: 2 x 5.5"

Welcome to The Challenge! Every other week we bring you a colour/sketch combo! You are welcome to combine the colours and sketch or just use one part of the challenge! It is totally up to you! The design team have created inspiring samples to get you into the crafting mood! 

Come and join us!

 For my card I really wanted to ink up the Verve "Bloom & Grow" stamp set again. I like the beautiful sentiments with Verve Stamps. I also used the Plain Jane Stamp Set called Beautiful. I am such a sucker for scrolling fonts!

My amazing team has outdone themselves!!! I love working with these talented ladies!!! A special thank you to Angel for being our Guest this month! We loved having you, Angel!
