Simply Stampin' Challenge 1

Hi Folkes.

I finished work yesterday for three weeks and was so looking forward to getting my cabin and crafting, but my dear son has given me a shocking cough and cold. I am hacking away constantly, so much so my sides ache!!. However I did force myself to go in there this afternoon and create a card for a new challenge blog, Simply Stampin' Challenge.

Here is what I created. Considering I am feeling unwell, I am quite pleased with the result.

Stamps: Baroque Motifs, Butterfly Prints, Basic Phrases 
Card: Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Not Quite Navy
Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Versamark
Accessories: Butterfly Punch, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Scallop Trim Border,
Basic Pearls, Clear Embossing Powder, Corner Punch.
