Stampin for the Weekend DT Card - Challenge 5

Wow, cant believe how quick the time has gone. We are now onto week 5 over at Stampin for the Weekend and a massive thanks to all of you who are taking part in the challenge, a roaring success so far. This weeks theme is double or nothing. We have provided not 1 but 2 sketches for you to choose from.

My card is a 6 x 6 and the papers are K & Co Wild Rasberry and the image is from Pink Gem Designs who also happens to be our sponser this week. I spritzed the nestie dies with glimmer mists and then stamped the image and coloured with Promarkers. Used an MS punch for the border and lots of pretty flowers and leaves to co-ordinate. I just love the scrabble tiles, and think they blend so well with the papers.

The insert is from the Designer Extreme Inserts available from Bearly Mine Designs. You can guarantee at least 1 insert will match any of your cards and I couldn't live without it amongst my stash.

Pink Gem Designs are sponsoring us this week and Janet has a gorgeous stamp for this weeks winner + Cute Daisy May are also sponsoring this weeks challenge and are giving the lucky winner a choice of 5 digi stamps, so a double whammy!!!
Please do pop on over to the SFTW Challenge blog and take a look at what totally gorgeous cards my other DT buddies have come up with. We would love it of you could join in and we always come and visit your blog, just our way of saying thanks.

Gorgeous card Claire, love all the papers you've used, they all go so well together, and the flower arrangements look lovely as well, The lace and punched border are a nice touch and it's a really cute image. I do love those scrabble tiles, they look fabulous and do match great with the papers.
