Truly Scrumptious Challenge 10

Hi everyone, and happy Wednesday.

We have another sketch for you today over at Truly Scrumptious.
In addition we want you to look out your neglected stash and incorporate some of it in your design. Now I had a rummage through mine, and although I used new my new stamp, the papers are really old, and I've used those 'dreaded peel off's' that I bought when I first started card making and didn't know any better.

This week I've made a card that fits inside a little gift box. I'm going to give it to my friend. I'm going to put some handmade wine charms inside too, and give her a bottle of wine along with it. I've followed the sketch on both the box and the card. The papers are by Junkitz. The peel off's were used for 'photo corners' and have been changed from gold to bronze with a brown Copic marker with the hope of bringing it more up to date.

The flowers are all made by me using the EK Success Retro Flower punches small and medium. I used a ball tool and soft mat to shape the petals after colouring plain white paper with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist - Patina. Some of the flowers have been stamped on before shaping. I had great fun doing this, and want more Glimmer Mist colours now, they're so magical and pretty.

I decorated the inside with the same image and papers. This card is very girly and reminds me of neopolitan ice-cream with the colours. You can also see I used my Martha Stewart Doily Edge punch too.
Why not pop along and see what the rest of the design team have done.

This is fabulous Debbie. I love the colours and I have to admit to having quite a few sheets of old peel offs in my drawer too! And I'm also hooked on the glimmer mists. I thought just one colour (pearl) would be enough to add a bit of shimmer to flowers etc but I'm totally hooked and now need to buy a whole range of colours!!
