Sentimental Inspiration at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, how's your week going? My card this morning is an inspiration project for our 'Sentimental' challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges, our lucky winner will receive a $20 voucher from our lovely sponsor Leo at 'Flonzcraft' so you've got to be in it to win it!!

I've created a fairly simple card using this beautiful stamp 'Girl on a Windy Hill' from Flonzcraft, she's been coloured with promarkers and matted up on some card, edges with a little picked raspberry DI. I made the background by running the lovely Fancier Lattice mask (from SplodgeAway) through my brand spanking new Grand Caliber, I inked the mask up first with some more picked raspberry using my brayer. I nearly didn't buy this ink as I wasn't sure if I'd use such a bright pink but its such a pretty colour with the brayer that I'm pleased I got it.

To finish off i've added a Chocolate Baroque Sentiment, a seam binding bow and a rolled paper flower made with spellbinders dies.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Boots: Stamped character
Die Cuttin Divas: anything goes
Happy Campers: mask or stencil
Paper Playtime: emboss wet or dry
Penny Black and more: blossoms and bows
Pretty Little Ribbon Shop: Spring is in the air
Stampin for the weekend: die cuts/punches

Well guess where I'm going today?? work, just for a change lol, still it keeps me in crafty stash so I shouldn't complain really.
Thanks for popping by, have a lovely day
