Words, words and more words ...

I have half a day left of the summer vacation before work begins tomorrow - what better way to spend it other than lunch with my son and then an afternoon of crafting!!!

This is a card I created for the new sketch challenge at STAMPlorations and I used my newest stamp set from STAMPlorations - Bloom Sketches - well I used most of the words and not the images.  I love creating panels using sentiments, the jigsaw approach to stamping is just the sort of challenge I enjoy.  I'm saving myself to use the beautiful bloom stamps that are incuded in the set but I do have an idea so you never know I might just be posting again later today!!  In the mean time here is my card:

The background is created by colouring light molding paste
This is the sketch:

As you can see I have stuck closely to the sketch.  I used the following:

STAMPlorations Stamp Set - Bloom Sketches
Stampin Up Inks - Bermuda Bay; Not Quite Navy; Pistachio Pudding; Coastal Cabana; Baja Breeze
Golden Gel Medium - Light Molding Paste
Tim Holtz Stripes Layering Stencil

I also have some exciting news - one of my cards won the last challenge at STAMPlorations - this is the card that I won with:
