Diva Sketch Challenge #24

Here I am again posting this challenge ‘early’ – well early in USA time anyways! It would have been earlier however I got a tweet from MercyMe and their Rock and Worship Roadshow was being streamed live so I had to go watch! I so enjoyed watching Jeremy Camp and Mercy Me sing live – awesome stuff!

I love the simplicity of this sketch and it could be used in so many ways!

Today I’ve chosen to use the Blooming with Beauty set – its such a lovely set to colour and I loved colouring it on the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Water Colour paper.dsc24plum

It was my mum’s birthday last Wednesday so I’ll be sending this card to her with a gift box of cards as she always likes that and it saves them having to spend so much on cards from the store as they are just so expensive.

It also happens she loves hydrangeas so its all good. I remember the house we lived at before I was married mum had hydrangeas just about all around the outside of the house! She must have a greener thumb than I do as I’ve never had any success with them here – maybe too much full sun all day.


I also stamped the little bee on a scrap piece of Watercolour Paper and coloured him in, then cut him out and mounted him on the card with stampin’ dimensionals.

He’s a little hard to see on the bigger picture so here’s a close-up.

You can view the challenges for the Diva’s group here and keep checking back during the week as they have other challenges for you to do as well.

Have a great day and dont forget the Sydney Swans play tonite!!



  1. ooh, I would have loved to watch them! I just got into an older album from Jars of Clay (Redemption Songs), fabulous album.

    This is a gorgeous card. I love your colouring of those hydrangeas!!

  2. Another simply stunning card Leonie. This set is on my ever growing Wish List (as I thought the ship had sailed when it’s mini closed). The colours are wonderful and my son (Master 8) thinks it’s pretty nifty too (high praise huh??)
