First Challenge for 2009

I've finally got around to making my first card of 2009. This is for Sketch Saturday's Sketch 32. The background paper came from my free papers through the Graphicus Guild I also punched the flowers from the same paper and added a little gem to each of them. I matched the card by scanning the paper into PSP and using the eye dropper to pick up one of the colours, then printed off a piece of thin card using that colour. I have teamed the image and the corners with a matching silk mirri card which I got from Joanna Sheen. The stamp is actually a Christmas Bauble, again from Graphicus, but with not using the top bit, it just looks like an ordinary round stamp. I do hope you like my card and hopefully there will be a lot more to follow as I get back into the swing of things. Thank you so much for dropping by. Beryl x
