Good Afternoon!

I do hope you are having a lovely day!  Today is the last day of 2nd term for my girls so over the next two weeks I’ll be enjoying a sleep in or three and no doubt a few lazy days 🙂

I decided this past week that I’d find another challenge to do and I just love the Sketches over at The Stampin’ Queens Sketch Challenges and as this card took me a few days I’m running late putting up my card but hey – better late than never!

Here is the Sketch ….

Easy enough dont you think??

So why did it take me so long to get my card finished, photographed and blogged? Short Answer – who knows?? I think I need to close off that Facebook page when I’m trying to work so as to remove that distraction! Facebook (and Pinterest for that matter) can be such a time waster but I have met the nicest people through Facebook and some have taken up residence in my heart 🙂

Here’s my card …

SQS44 Feathery Shimmer

I used the Colour Coach to help me select the colour combination and I just love these three together! Elegant Eggplant, Cherry Cobbler and Pumpkin Pie. When I was photographing this card I was trying to get a picture that would show you the shimmer all over the card but I just couldnt capture it – you can see it a bit at the top. It’s all so shimmery and elegant 🙂

I love how this turned out and how cool are those Faux Ostrich Feathers?? well my attempt at them! Vanessa showed us how to make those at the Stampin’ Up! Convention in Canberra last month.  They make such a lovely addition to your cards – a touch of elegance.

I hope you like this card as much as I do!



  1. Great colour combo Leonie. I still maintain you cannot go wrong with butterflies. I will picture the sparkle with the hint on the pic.
